We're fresh into 2012 so no doubt we're going to be bombarded with television commercials about quitting smoking...again. There were a couple posts on here speaking of freedom of choice to smoke. I'm a smoker, so obviously, I follow this belief. What I get so tired of hearing is that it's simply addiction that keeps us smoking. I know for me, it's much more than that. I'm not saying I don't get the nicotine cravings when I can't smoke, but if I really wanted, I could get past those and go on to being an ex-smoker. Simply, I choose to smoke because I enjoy it like countless others. We all know someone who has quit smoking with no problem. The key to their instant success is that they were mentally ready to give up smoking. The problem today is that we are all brain washed into thinking we only smoke because we are addicted...not so in my opinion. Addiction is just a part of the habit, but not the whole picture.
Wishing everyone here a good 2012!
