Freedom provides a ton of information on quitting smoking. Some of it offers a view of the comfortable road ahead as an ex-smoker, thus removing much of the fear. Some offers a view of the alternative.... life and death as a smoker. Most boils down to reinforcing the fundamental concept: The Law of Addiction.
In short, smoking, and by extension quitting.... they're all or nothing propositions. There is no in between. It's smoke or don't smoke... freedom or slavery.... success or failure.... for the addict, there is no such thing as one cigarette. One = All
I often boil it down thusly when offering support.
None or All. Why choose none?
I can smoke none or I can smoke all of them. I choose to smoke none because... (fill in the blank).
And, there's the point of this little parade. The "why". Of all the things Freedom offers, it cannot ultimately nail the latter half of the equation. That has to come from within. Each of us has our own reasons why we quit. Some have to do with health... some with life.... some with cost...social reasons..... the important thing is that, for us to be successful, the reasons for undertaking this journey must come from within. We quit for ourselves and ourselves alone.
OUR reasons are the foundation upon which every choice between none or all rests.
So..... This parade is an opportunity to fill in the blank. One reason, 20 reasons. Vague or specific.I can smoke none or I can smoke all of them. I choose to smoke none because... (fill in the blank).
