If you are smoking cigarettes, you are in active addiction.

Nicotine addiction is treated in best in a residential treatment facility.
Get the help you need. Rethink Rehab.

Even to the great length of going against what we thought our values were. You might have vowed never to smoke, thought it was a dirty and silly habit, and then guess what, you became a smoker anyway!

You do not need residential treatment for cigs. I quit heroin on my own, been clean a little over a year(Aug 2, 2014). Most people who go to treatment(97% with opiates) end up relapsing, and you wanna know why? Because they don’t actually wanna quit. They act like they want to quit, go to treatment so it looks like they are trying to quit, and than when they relapse they blame the addiction and say they tried everything to stay clean, when in reality they never wanted to quit, and all there effort was used to make it look like they were getting clean, instead of actually getting clean. There is a huge social stigma about being addicted to drugs, and a lot of addicts do Avery good job of acting in a way that displays that they have a desire to get clean, and they put this false face on so when they het caught using people show them pity because they think there addiction is stronger than they are, whereas if they told the truth, that they didn’t want to get clean and wanted to keep using, people wouldn’t show them pity, people would be disgusted with there behaviour. If someone truly wants to get clean, they will get clean. When I decided I know longer wanted to use I took steps to ensure I wouldn’t relapse. I gave myself buffers too keep me distanced from anything that could compromise me staying clean. I got rid of my cell phone, this was to ensure that I could not be contacted by anyone who could negatively impact my efforts to stay clean, such as old dealers or old friends that were still using. I essentially cut off all contact with the outside world while I was detoxing to ensure no one could compromise what I was doing. I also grounded myself until I was done detoxing. My detox lasted for 6 weeks, and during that time I did not leave my house, with the exception of going to court, or going to grab some food. And in both those instances I was with my mom so that she could make sure I didn’t get any ideas. This barrier ensured I did not run into anybody that was apart of my old life style while I was out, because that would be a trigger for me to use. My last barrier was to wait for 6 months after I got clean to look for a job. The reason for this is simple. You can ask any addict what there triggers are, and every single addict will have money on there list. I wanted at least 6 months of sobriety under my belt before I started making money, I wanted my mind to be well enough so I could deal with that trigger, and not go out and relapse as soon as I had to confront that trigger. If anyone reading this has someone in there life going thru an addiction, please talk to them. Make sure when you talk to them you are gentle and not confrontational. Addicts are fragile people, and if they feel they are being attacked they will be more likely to use than listen to them. Talk to them about if they want to truly get clean or if they are just acting that way to avoid confrontation and embarassment. If they truly want to get clean recommend to them what I did. Cut off all contact to outside world while detoxing (phone, Facebook,etc) to avoid those triggers. Ground themselves to their house while detoxing, and if they need to leave to go to grocery store or something of that nature, make sure that they have a sober baby sitter (parent, other family member, non using friend, sponser) to keep an eye on them and make sure they don’t do anything to jeoparodize there sobriety. If they have a job tell them to take a two month leave of absence so they can detox physically and get mind right mentally. And also try not to work for 6 months to avoid money, the most powerful trigger of all. If this is not possible have them talk to a parent, or someone they trust 100%,and have there direct deposit rerouted to that persons account, than have that person control all there finances. Have that person pay bills. If they need money to go to the store, have that person go to the store also, and instead of taking the cash out of account and giving it to them, have them get everything they need, and use a card to buy it. And than make sure you keep the receipt so they can’t return anything. I never said getting clean is easy, in fact it is very hard, which is why if you don’t truly want it you will relapse, but if you truly want to get clean and change your lifestyle, you will be willing to put these barriers in place to prevent a relapse as best as you can. Someone who wants to get clean will embrace these barriers. On the other hand if someone you know claims they want to be clean, but get upset when you recommend these barriers and fight against using these barriers, them wanting to get clean is just talk, just words coming out of there mouth without any meaning behind. There is no set time someone needs to use these barriers, it is different for everyone. Once you implement these barriers you need to form a strong support system so that the person can gradually change there outlook on life, the bigger the support system the better. That way they have more people to go to when a problem arises. Also, an unintended benefit of the support system is, as the person gets clean he gets his soul and conscious back,because you lose those when your an addict, and as you get those back you become less and less likely to use if you have a good support system. When your an addict you are only worried about yourself. But when your clean with a support system, if you ever even think about using the first thing that comes to mind are all those people ho supported you, helped get your life back on track, and how much they will be hurt and how terrible you will feel if you use and just them. So that’s all,a former addicts guide on how to get clean if you truly want to, by setting barriers in place to reduce triggers and help you get through the detoxification process and getting a support system in place to maintain sobriety.

Joe – You are so right my man! What I did mirrors what you did almost to the letter! The only difference in my story is I only took a week off from work to get over the worst part of the physical withdrawal. Pretty much everything else is exactly what I did. And yes people, if you don’t really want to quit, what the point in faking it? If you know you’re going to get high as soon as you walk out of rehab, don’t east everyone’s time. And money. I also agree Joe that CASH in hand was my biggest trigger. So I had a trusted friend control my money for almost 2 years.
Anyone out there really wanting to get clean and sober, you can do it! It’s not easy. Don’t bother trying though, if you’re not 100% committed to MAJOR changes.
Peace!

Although residential treatment may help you with a nicotine addiction I don’t believe it is necessary for withdrawal symptoms to be monitored for life threatening medical conditions. I believe both alcohol and opiate addiction withdrawal present a greater potential for serious health problems which make a residential facility with trained staff to monitor withdrawal highly advisable. Most rehab facilities in Ontario Canada, where I live, require 4 days abstinence from your substance of choice before you can get a bed. With smoking the first 48 hours are the hardest for me. For alcohol I had to go to detox before being relatively clean enough that I could apply for rehab and not drink the week before entering. This rehab was government funded, three week, residential. I believe there are lots of places one can walk right into and get detox then rehab but you need cash or credit. Rehab is great for helping identify triggers, making plans to deal with high risk situations, understanding harmful personal beliefs that lead to self destructive behaviours patterns and staying clean, eating well and getting proper rest. People may go to rehab without wanting to quit. However they may be planning to use a harm reduction strategy to deal with their substance abuse. I went from 30 ounces of vodka a day to 12 standard drinks a week. Credit goes to increased self awareness, mindfulness and radical acceptance that helped me cope with my emotions, interactions with others and the inevitable but beyond my control stresses and worries in life. Even without cutting my drinking by 90 percent I am much happier and, l think, a more functional member of society. Is rehab for everyone; for every addiction? Of course not, but three weeks of healthy living and the valuable insights and tools you are exposed to should be a factor people add to their cost/benefit equation when considering whether to attend residential treatment or not. All of this to say I agree with Jane. Get the help you need; rethink rehab. Rehab is not just for quitters. Respect
