Where's The Rub?

Rub "a difficulty, obstacle or objection"

In quitting, the rub is whatever allows you to give up your quit.

See, the rub is actually just an excuse.

Nothing that I know of requires smoking.

Have you considered the rub?

Is it losing a pet or loved one?

Is it a car wreck?

Losing your job or a friendship you value?

A hurricane? Tornado? Fire? Flood?


What's it going to take for you to give up on your quit and smoke?


If you think about these things in advance, perhaps it is a way to prepare your response if they happen.


The only one on my list was if I suddenly  lost my wife and daughter in an accident.

Thankfully, that never happened.
