Tobacco/nicotine dependence is a problem that often requires repeated treatments, but there are helpful treatments and resources for stopping. It wasn't like kicking a habit, but instead consciously choosing to no more participate after years of it being a social staple. I was only ever before enjoying myself maybe one out of ten times. All of those other times dispatched me reeling from the feeling of experiencing my social anxiety magnified. Contrary to the cliches, it never sparked any form of creative imagination either, and in fact was counterproductive. In the long run, it was easy to quit since it was almost as though I was giving up onto it. I never noticed an immediate change but Perhaps I could say that it allowed me to give attention to myself more creatively, vocationally, and socially, which at this time has left me with the highest self-esteem of my life.Congratulations to all who have stop smoking!!!

I didn't keep duplicating that statement. I just let it be.
