I quit smoking like a year ago and for some reason, I still obsess over it. It's like; I feel I can't be as happy being a nonsmoker. Yet, I know that I wanted to quit for a reason. I enjoy having more energy and being able to jog. I still feel kinds a depressed sometimes though about not smoking. I even have Allen Carrâ€™s "The Easy way to stop smoking" and it helps a lot and even explains that smokers don't enjoy cigarettes. They just smoke to relieve withdrawal from nicotine. So do cigarettes work as a placebo or what? Am I just going to be miserable either way? Nonsmoker or smoker.
