From my first published book, Maybe You Should Move Those Away From You, which will be featured as a Kindle Free Book Deal on the days leading up to this year’s Great American Smokeout (November 19, 2020).
As the nicotine levels in my body decreased, I would sometimes feel very strongly that I could quit smoking. Obviously, this was one of those moments. Other times, I imagined that it would be nice to smoke only three or four cigarettes per day and to smoke a cigarette only whenever I made a conscious choice to do so. Remember, I had inhaled poison for more than a quarter of a century. It should not surprise anyone that I was at times nervous and uncertain.
