If Nicotine Addiction played fair I might even be willing to make a deal with it!
Had Nicotine kept it's word to relieve my stress, anxiety, and depression for the number of days listed on my quit smoking meter I might consider the trade-off!
The meter says that I could have traded 11 Weeks and 4 Days for 6 Years worth of smoking. First of all, I don't for a second believe my meter! I think it's a whole lot more than 3 months worth! Another thing it doesn't measure is Quality of life and I promise you, many a Dr has told me I would have been very impaired had I not quit when I did!How much impairment would I be paying for those Sickerettes? Who knows but I'm convinced it's a bunch!
But even more insidious is that smoking never really relieved my stress! All it did was stop the withdrawal that it started in the first place!
It never really kept me from being depressed! What it really did was hide my depression from myself while heaping self contempt for being an addict in the first place!
Smoking never really helped me with anxiety - I felt more anxiety that I might run out of my smokes or not have a lighter or not get enough smoke breaks at work or might smell bad to my Wife and Kids or...or..or!
Don't you see? They were all Nico-Lies! Every single promise that Nicotine made me was a blatant Lie that I believed because Nicotine robbed me of my Brain!
It's not fair to me or to you and you can't negotiate a fair deal with Addiction!
But you can get a Fair Deal with Quitting! The promises are the Truth!
It isn't easy but it is simple!
It is absoluetely worth it! And I'm glad to have my 3 Months back. I'm glad to have my Quality of Life back. I'm glad to feel less stress, less anxiety, less depression! I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Only sooner if I had known the TRUTH!
