The one true property that shows the power of the addiction
is that no matter how long a person is off, one puff and that
quit can go out the window.

"You were addicted to nicotine all of the years you used it and
you are addicted to it today too. But as an ex-smoker the
addiction becomes asymptomatic. To keep it that way and
to basically stay in control always remember to
Never Take Another Puff!"

Just to reinforce what is being said today.... Not only WERE you (me, everybody here) addicted, but you will ALWAYS be addicted.

There are two types of addicts. They stand on either side of the one puff. Stay on this side, and you'll always be a FREE addict; not an enslaved one.

... from "Reasons People Want to Quit Smoking"
Cigarette smoking is an addiction. It is imperative to remember that once you are an addict, you are always an addict. Once you are off smoking for a short period of time, staying off is relatively easy. You will have occasional thoughts for a cigarette, but they are nothing compared to the urges encountered from withdrawal during the early quitting process. But you must always keep in mind that one puff will put you back to a state of full fledged dependency. Then you will either have to go back to smoking or once again go through quitting. Those are both lousy options. Think of both of them whenever you consider taking a puff. Stick with the winners and - NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF!

I used to have a dime that was dated 1880 something! It was one of the first items I collected as a child. It possessed no major worth other than sentimentality, yet I valued that little treasure. Guess what I used it for one day when desperation over-rode rational thinking?!
