Many people try to slow down on their habit, but don't give it up all together. Many won't go cold turkey, because they feel they literally cannot live without their drug. Some quote the fear of withdrawal symptoms. My question is, maybe drying out is the only way to ensure that quitting will stay in effect. Whether a person has withdrawal symptoms is not really what I am saying. Most will probably have some sort of physical effect, but it's highly unlikely it will kill them. What do you think?
