screams, laughter, fears and tears

<t>Wow...I really needed to read this today! There have been no specific triggers, just that "empty" feeling that my junkie thinks can be filled only with that killer drug, nicotine. I feel reassured knowing that I am still in the process of healing. <br/> <br/> Thanks, Linda <br/> <br/> Carolyn <br...

“Maybe I am different?”

<t>I have printed this article and read it probably a dozen times. Why? Because the junkie in me has a very short memory! I was not one of the "lucky ones" who got "hooked" right away when I ruined my last quit. It took several weeks to go from that first puff to a pack a day. <br/> <br/> I am not d...
