Another slant on how to watch people smoke

It's like watching someone shoot up... Only they are blind and don't know it's a needle. NEVER let your fixations, passing desires, or even triggers get in the way of sharing your struggle and victory with a nicotine addict.

<r>To be honest, it frightened me when I first learned that "quitting" was something akin to rocket science . But then an ole' boy named Joel stepped in there and said, "it is NOT rocket science, it's simple." Y'all confuse me sometimes. <IMG height="19" src="http://sc.groups.msn.com/themes/R9c/pby/...
