Hi Sherry, thanks for your response. I’ve also struggled with smoking, although it’s always taken a backseat to my alcohol problems. I think in a lot of ways quitting smoking can be even harder than quitting drinking, but they’re hard to compare. I’ll definitely make sure to check out your post. Good luck with staying off cigarettes; I’ll be rooting for you too.

I’m a lawyer and teacher from North Carolina. I write about sobriety, mental health, running, and more. Buy me a “coffee” at ko-fi.com/benyaclark.
