This quit feels so different

Blog Post created by constanceclum on Oct 22, 2016

For one thing I haven't felt like killing people. I think of smoking the same way I do alcohol. Things that make my life unmanagable but I don't do anymore. Acceptance. They just aren't a part of my life today. It is weird but I just don't have the obsession anymore.

I've heard many people in AA say they used the same principals to quit smoking that they did to quit drinking, primarily the steps. I have grown so much spiritually in AA that I think that is what is helping me. I'm not fighting or struggling. I see myself as a nonsmoker. I'm not envious of people I see smoking. I simply feel sorry that they are locked in this hell of active addiction. Don't get me wrong, there is still that rare occassion when the lie comes in my head that a cig. would taste good. It is not overwhelming and I simply place it on the back burner of my brain until it passes.

Am I in danger of becoming complacent? I think as long as I keep close to you guys and be very cautious in NML, I will be safe. I do not smoke so it is not an option. 

Whatever it is I will take it 1 day at a time
