Hello to everyone just starting your quits. I quit about 200 times until the last one 7 years ago. It was only then that I finally admitted to myself that I was an addict. It's no different from other drugs, except maybe more powerful, and you just have to realize it's going to be difficult and you have to stop fooling yourself that one more pack or one more cigarette or one more day of smoking the damn things can't do any harm. I posted a poem here about 7 years ago and thought it might be useful to put it here again..
Ben

I am addiction.
I am deeper than the seven seas.
Like the oceans, I retreat and I return.
You may reject me, but you cannot kill me.
You may defeat me, but I will not be gone.
I am addiction.
I will weaken, but I will not die. Beware

Nicotine dependency is the most common form of drug addiction and causes more deaths and disease than all other addictions combined. And when it comes to smoking addiction, cigarette smoking is the one most likely to take hold during adolescence.
