I have been an on again/off again cigarette smoker for the last 10 years and have tried many times to quit. I've failed. I always thought it would be good if there was a 12 step support group for just smokers. I went to a substance abuse meeting once because smoking in a substance but they were all taking about addictions to other drugs that I really didn't understand and they couldn't figure out why I was there. They thought being addicted to cigarette's would be awesome in comparison to what they were addicted too. I left the meeting early and was very embarrassed for even going. I have two little girls. One is 6 and understands what I'm doing (currently, I'm hiding it from her because she doesn't know I've started up again) and the other is 4 months old. I quit during both pregnancies and have quit multiple times over the years but always go back to it. My husband understands the need because he is an ex smoker but I have a problem and I don't know how to stop it and I really wish there was a standard support group that I could go to for my smoking addiction. I tried going to one of our city committees that help people with addictions to see where I could go to get help. Lol. I got a "goodie bag" with some hard candy, a pamphlet, a rubberband, and some toothpicks!! And was told that was all I needed to get on the road to quitting my addiction and that the support groups that were available were for people with "real addictions". Like alcohol and other drugs.... Does anyone have any suggestions??
