Today I'm really on the nicodemon rampage and have the positive energy to write after a nicotine free 55 days. I guess I am being powered by righteous anger and want to do something to help my fellow man who has helped me. This is a quit smoking forum but I've learned so much recently about what my real problem is. What is my problem? Is my problem really just smoking itself? I learned this word "nicodemon" from quit smoking blogs and I think its a good way to describe the culprit who is responsible for our addiction. Finally the demon has been named. The nicodemon!!! Is this really about smoking cigarettes or our addiction to nicotine? Has the nicodemon been so subtle in his ways that we've never noticed or never tried to find out exactly who the culprit is? They put signs on cigarettes saying that smoking is bad for our health and causes this and that but who is shouting out loud about the nicodemon? Surely nicotine is bad for us too but nicodemon is sly and we can't blame everything on him, can we? Nicodemon is like an Al Capone who is responsible for murder but could only be charged with tax evasion? Why can't governments and advertising companies be forced to write about how terrible nicotine is for us and how its poisonous and responsible for getting us hooked on the cigarettes. I've not investigated this much but I'm pretty sure that cigarettes are not just tobacco leaves anymore and my guess is that the money for the large ciggy companies comes from injecting nicotine into our fags.
Of course, someone might say that we are responsible for our addiction - but then again, we aren't fully responsible if we've been ignorant, deceived or misinformed. I honestly believe that most smokers don't really know what they are doing and how they've been suckered into nicodemon's trap. We should forgive all of those who don't know about the nicodemon don't you think? Everyone says "Stop Smoking!" but who is saying "Quit nicotine and you won't smoke?" Lets hope that more people become aware of just how bad nicotine is.
This time round is so different from every other time I've tried to quit. This time round I've not quit smoking. No! I've quit nicotine!
