Just last weekend I was at work by myself and out in the warehouse I saw a pack of cigarettes sitting on the shipping table by the back door. I walked over to it, opened it up, pulled one out and just stared at it. I put it between my fingers. It felt good. Inviting. I wanted to smoke it and no one would know if I did.
But I didn't. I snapped out of it. It felt like I was in a trance and then I woke up.
Smoking is a very strong addiction and I can tell you first hand it is not an easy addiction to kick. But it can be done. Maybe not the first time you try. Heck, maybe not the 20th but if you don't try to quit then you never ever will.
Here's to another year.
