My friend was convinced that it was very easy to quit smoking, and to prove to everyone and test his willpower, he started smoking. And so, first one cigarette a day, then increasing the "dose", all this lasted six months and after the expiration of time, he must quit. A month later, a slight dependence was observed from the outside, and after three - a complete dependence on cigarettes. Six months passed, during which time he smoked a lot. As it turned out, quitting smoking is not so easy and it lasted 3 months! In the end he took over the addiction
Just think ... is it willpower ?! Now, if a person died, and then after three to come to life - this would be real proof of willpower.
ps: it is impossible to defeat addiction, because addiction is not a subject. the test of "beating the addiction" is like the test of "overtaking your shadow"
