I'm sitting here on the mend from a New Year's Eve party.  Alcohol, I should know better.  There were lots of smokers and smoked filled the air.  While mixing and mingling what kept going through my mind was 1=1,000.  One might be good, but I know the LoA  and I believe in it.  I can't imagine a successful quit without that knowledge.

Since my quit I have not backed down from any of my triggers, alcohol included.  I meet them head on.  I figure if I keep beating them down then eventually they will just fade away, like that part of Ben that is no more.  I ended the last 146 days of 2013 smoke free.  I intend to go the next 146 years the same way!   

Ben

[font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF]Question: How long does it take to become readdicted?[/font]
[font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF]Answer: There is no answer, it was a trick question. You never got unaddicted.[/font]

[font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF]The question should have been how long does it take to relapse? The answer to this is how long does it take you to secure a cigarette, strike a match or lighter and take a puff? It can happen in an instant if you ever drop your guard.[/font]

[font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF]So how long does it take to secure your quit? It only takes a few seconds, the time that it should take for you to just remind yourself as to why you committed to never take another puff![/font]

[font=ARIAL, GEORGIA, 'TIMES NEW ROMAN', TIMES, SERIF]Point of the above two references is that you cannot stop your addiction to nicotine, but you can stop feeding the addiction and thus break the grip that the addiction held on you. Then the addiction will become asymptomatic and stay that way as long as you stick to your personal commitment to never take another puff..[/font]
