So....I'm Projecting Into The Near Future

The circle of addiction....

My very good friend from the first quit smoking site i was on quit a few months after i did.

About 5-6 months ago, she moved in with an old (smoking) friend.  Evidently the wine just didn't taste as good without a cigarette...(yes she trashed a nearly 5 year quit)

a few months after my friend moved in, .... her old smoking friend had one of her legs amputated because sores on her feet would not heal. the doctors attributed it to bad circulation. (most probably due to her chain smoking for 40 years) Smoking depletes healing oxygen from your bloodstream and replaces it with carbon monoxide. (poison)

so...i'm talking to my friend tonight and telling her if she isn't able to quit before her friend moves home, she will be the enabler this time and the next thing to go will be her friends other leg.

then what?

PS her friend has 90 days smokefree but asked my friend 2 days ago if she was still smoking then. said "gimmee some" 

WHY DO WE MAKE THE WRONG CHOICES WHEN WE KNOW THEY'RE WRONG?
