One would think that the antidote to wanting an addictive substance such as nicotine would be a substitution. But in fact, the antidote is the gratitude one feels as the result of not being pushed around by the need for nicotine anymore. That is why November is the perfect month to celebrate abstinence from addiction to nicotine.
OK, I am late with my November message. But better late…
What do my clients tell me they are grateful for?
