I have been thinking of my views since having a thread shut down. Will my comments affect others lifes? Are my comments to close to the bone? Am I wrong with my thinking? Maybe I am but if can't air my personal view then it's all a bit hush hush and that's not what I'm about. I have tried NRT to many times, I have boxes of half empty patches and gum everywhere! It made me stop smoking but never stopped my addiction. I know a lot of people who tried to stop using NRT and they all failed. When I had my drug addiction to heroin I would go down to get my substitute from the chemist every day with the rest of the losers, after hearing the death of my best friend I booked a home detox and went cold turkey, much harder than cold turkey of nicotine. Anyway nowadays when I come out the gym and drive past the chemist I see the same losers stood waiting for there substitute, no better off are these fools 5 years on it's a real shame. My point is that is NRT curing the problem? Or is it prolonging the pain. Have some respect for my view on this and that my way of coping is a result of my past actions.
