OK time for a discussion about the addiction.
Lets start with a statement I believe to be true,
Nicotine is not physically a very addictive drug, and staying quit relies upon you changing the way you think about smoking.
So why is it that you can change the way you think about smoking as in its not something I do any more and not a great loss, but if, as I did in the past, I tried to view smoking as something I would like to do every so often but not every day, it does not work.
In other words it appears that one can change ones mindset to total abstinence but with very few exceptions being a social smoker is not possible!
My logic tells me that it should be possible, practical experience of myself and many others tells me that it is not.
Before anyone thinks I'm trying to formulate a strategy to become a social smoker I am not, am am now free of this nasty drug and will not risk getting caught by it again.
Just interested in your thoughts.
