    Wow..I like how you broke down what can happen in the gap of awareness and how we interpret our addictions can also send us into downward spirals in other areas of life when we use absolute vocabulary. This series of 3 articles is really great…Thanks

    As you said: Way harder said than done. A ‘walk across shark infested waters’, 45 year cigarette addiction has me stumped. Meditated for years, but a few months ago, stepped up and more into mindfulness than what I used to do. Doing at least two longer mindfulness meditations, plus many bell-triggered moments through the day. No drugs, no alcohol, eat fresh and clean. Even smoking mindfully. That’s not having the desired effect – quite the opposite, in fact. Want to keep going, but maybe the reason for wanting to give up (cost) isn’t cutting it? Any hints would be appreciated.
