We were not crazy. Our action and behaviors were completely predictable. We had a need. A dependency. A relationship with tobacco. Actually it was the nicotine. All relationships exist because on some level they meet a need. My choices as a smoker were completely rational. I smoked to prevent withdrawal. My DH hates going to a movie or a concert if it means two hours without tobacco/nicotine. I found a way to cope at work and meet my dependency needs by using the nicotine patch. The cost did not matter. Time, money, bodily harm. Irrelevant. I was addicted. I even felt sorry for my brother when he quit. Financial responsibility ended it for him. He needed a relationship with a car payment. Not one puff ever is the mantra. No relationship with tobacco or nicotine. Now it will never again make me crazy.
