Welcome to this website. It takes time to uncurl the clenched fist of addiction. The first and only requirement for membership in nicotine-anonymous.org is a DESIRE to quit. You don't have to be ready to do the deed. That means you can attend meetings for however long you need to before giving up cigarettes. This is important. Getting support AS a smoker lowers the anxiety about finding a way out.
I have been a member of NicA for 15 years and I've been nicotine free now for 13 of those years. That means I smoked as a member for close to 2 years before quitting for this last time. I have so many tools and such a great support system by working this program that I haven't relapsed like I did when on my own.
If I can be of further service to you, do contact me. Live meetings are the best but if there aren't any within an hour of where you are, there are daily bridge phone meetings and online meetings. Using the 12 steps of recovery like alcoholics anonymous does has given me my life back, free and clear.
in loving service
