How is being here with us and talking about recovery any different than studying smokers around you as they feed a mandatory need? It is healthy to think
about the process of recovery. But it is also necessary that we each gradually tear down the wall of rationalizations, minimizations and blame transferece
we built in order to protect and insulate us from what truly felt like an inability to stop our own senseless self-destruction. Embrace recovery,
don't fight it! Remember what life as an active addict was like, don't forget it! You're going home and today's victory is all that
matters. The next few minutes are doable. Breathe deep, hug hard, live long! John

former relationship with tobacco was extremely intense and produced millions of tiny independent memories of needing, craving, finding, opening, holding,
striking, lighting, sucking, tasting, inhaling, feeling, ahhhhing, exhaling, ashing, butting, dumping, cleaning, brushing, buying, trying, failing, decaying,
lying, hiding and crying.
How could we possibly expect ourselves not to NOTICE others still captive to tobacco or THINK about what they're doing
as we encounter them throughout our day? We can't and we shouldn't! It's very normal!
....recognizing the fine distinction between THINKING about your recovery (and the fact that you are not smoking) vs.
experiencing an URGE, CRAVE or WANT to put nicotine inside your body, is, in a very real sense, victory in itself!
Even brief periods of wanting new nicotine or a cigarette won't harm us at all. It's only when a quitter acts upon their WANT that
they destroy their freedom, healing and glory!

Therein is the key, stripping the 'romance'away from tobacco & cigarette use and making our mind see clearly that what we are missing is the effect of the drug therein.
