This is so true. Until you look at yourself like this, you will have trouble stopping. You need to look at yourself as an addict because that is what you are as a smoker.
I used to say to myself, at least I am not a dirty junkie, in my smugness.Or a smelly wino!! Ha ha I was a stinky smoker that would have scavenged in the gutter if need be!! Isn’t that funny, there is always someone who we view to be worse…….and as LONG as we are not like them, then that excuses our addiction (to ourselves that is!!). In reality, I was exactly like this, ADDICTED!! The only difference was I did not need to shoot up nicotine.
BE BRUTAL AND BE HONEST!!
