Wasn't sure where to post this but you be the judge as to whether the guy concerned is stronger or smarter (or should have visited Freedom &
WhyQuit and saved himself a lot of effort).
This is from a UK daily paper and abridged by me.
"MAROONED.... SO I CAN CAST AWAY CIGARETTES
A millionaire has become a castaway on an island to try & quit smoking. Geoff Spice landed on uninhabitated Scottish island and will live there for a
month. The longest he quit before is 9 days. He's got 180 cans of food and bottled water "This is my last chance. I can crack the habit" said Mr
Spice of Surrey"

How can we meet, greet and extinguish nicotine use cue conditioning when we hide from our triggers? The smoking relapse rate for inmates upon release from
prison, after having been forced to stop smoking upon arrest and imprisonment, is 97% within 6 months (see
Tuthill RW et al, "Does involuntary cigarette smoking abstinence among inmates during correctional incarceration result in continued abstinence post
release?" (poster). 26th National Conference on Correctional Health Care, Nashville, Tennessee, October 21, 2002).
While both our island friend and prison inmates do extinguish life's most basic use cues (living, breathing, eating, stress) what happens the first time
they see their old smoking buddy, walk into the store where they used to purchase their smokes or socialize with friends or drink alcohol?
Recovery is about taking back life one slice at a time. Don't run from recovery but embrace it! There's a reward at the end of each challenge, the
return of another aspect of life. Still one rule ... none today!
