Haven't listened to it yet but

I started smoking to help me break my bad habit of drinking excessively. I used to always have a beer or drink in my hand and didn't know what to do with myself for the first year or so after I quit drinking. I now enjoy smoking. I don't feel like I'm addicted since I sometimes go a few weeks without smoking because I'm so poor and they are expensive. But, smoking gives me something to do when I'm bored and my grandfather smoked 2 packs a day of Kool cigs since he was 9 years old and he died at age 79. Another friend of mine that was a smoker died in a plane crash...smoking didn't effect his life span.

I wish I could buy pot that didn't get me high because I love the taste of it and it doesn't have all the man made chemicals in it...but the weed around today is about 20 times as stong as the stuff I used to smoke in high school. I need some really bad weed. Everytime I ask someone that smokes if they can get me some total crap they look at me like I'm nuts. lol. The cheapest (worse) stuff I've found is still too strong for me to smoke an entire doobie.

I have such horrible problems don't I? lol.

Maybe You're Are Substituting One Addiction For Another?

Maybe you're not ready to change yet...Anyway, give it a listen. He has helped me and millions of others with their addictions, anger, resentments and stresses for over fifty years.

He is now presently helping the troops cope with the trauma and stresses of war. The CD is called "Cope-ing Strategies". There is one for civilians as well.

I will listen...I love listening to audio books and podcasts etc

I just haven't taken the time yet. My wife is in the hospital :(

And yes, I did switch one addiction for another but smoking does not turn me into someone that I am not. Smoking doesn't make me want to fight guys in bars who are typcially bigger than me...lol.

Vices are not crimes. You need to listen to the book called defending the undefendable by Walter Block (I think). Its on mises.org It will make you think about other people and their choices in a totally different way.

BTW I obviously can't smoke in the hospital where my wife is, and I spend the night there every night she is there. Its cold so I don't go outside just to smoke. I'll smoke a cigarette in about 5 minutes on the way to the hospital and won't smoke another until probably 9 or 10 in the morning. I do not in any way feel I have a physical addiction to nicotine. I just like the activity of smoking. I'd actually rather snort cocaine but that is really frowned upon and its illegal and expensive.

I love being happy and feeling good. Whats so wrong with that?
