The acceptance of the fact that ‘life’ does whatever it chooses is the key to understanding the meaning of taking control of our lives. Control is only the way we choose to handle the myriad of situations that life presents to us. Smoking is not a way of controlling anything. It is just an escape. It keeps us at the ‘victim’ stage of life. It addicts us to ‘infancy’.

It was about that time that I thought of writing down what I was experiencing and thinking, so that others could read it. It could help them with their journey to withdraw ‘Nic’ (as some people call him/it) from their bodies. It could also help my wife understand what I was going through. After all, I was dropping a habit that I had since I was a teenager. I knew no other life than the one that involved smoking.

My wife has never been a smoker and couldn’t understand the addiction to it. The same goes for smokers. Most smokers do not understand the addiction to their addiction.
