Addictions

Greetings and congrats on your attempt. I too smoke. I am also a recovered addict. I know, from my time in the program and on my own that addiction is a state of mind. Sure, it is somewhat physiological but for the most part I have found it to be psychological. I was addicted to crack for six years and one day I walked away. Sure, I had issues, I struggled for a year until I "GOT IT". Once you "get it", you learn that the power inherently needed to kick any addiction is within you. I smoke still, yes but only because I enjoy it and want to. When I get to a certain age, I'll quit, but only because I want to. It's getting close to that time as I take out the garbage and get winded. Yep, it's just about time. But anyways, good luck to you and your endeavors to become smoke free. I leave you with this, when you get so sick of it that it drives you nuts, you'll quit and that'll be the end of it. Peace...
