It was so upsetting to know that I could not smoke, even though I wanted to. I started doing it in my teens, and I had zero idea how it would affect the rest of my life. I really had no idea what addiction was back then, no matter how many times it was explained to me by teachers, parents, etc. You don’t know what it does to you until it happens to you. It was suggested to me that I try Chicago acupuncture to try to kick the habit. I was surprised to hear it because I did not know that would help. After what I had been through for 3 decades, I was ready to try anything, though.
I remember forcing myself to continue to smoke as a teen, even though I really did not like it. It made no sense at all when I look back at that now. (more…)
