I believe common sense.dictates you begin from the only point that cannot be changed.
This one point happens to be the top hinge. You attach the top of the hinge jamb to the framing until it's plumb and level it's full length and then, you adjust the head jamb so the space in the corner above the hinge is equal to the space that the hinges create between the door and the jamb and you tack the head jamb in position. The full length of the jamb on the lock side is the last to be set and easiest to be adjusted to the edge of the door because it's only fixed point is the top corner where it meets the head jamb. It's all common sense if you stop and think about it.
In quitting smoking the top hinge is your DECISION TO NOT SMOKE.
"If you've quit and you are smoking, you're doing it wrong."
I know people inherently realize this but, until you accept it, you will repeat the cycle.
The secret to this is not letting your emotions rule your quit. Nothing makes us smoke. We make us smoke.
Time is the healer.
