I'm not too understanding of people who call themselves addicts.
To me that's saying you have no control over yourself.
What good does it do to say something is in control of you when you aren't even using it?
I smoked for 40 years and I don't consider myself an addict.
I choose to not smoke. what could be simpler?
I believe this "addict" thinking is part of the whole brainwashing that it is so difficult to quit smoking or anything that triggers a dopamine release or dulls reality.
I believe you can overcome many negative limitations if you take control of your negative thinking and just kick it out of your head.
Quit defeating yourself.
