Nora Volkow, sadly, doesn't post here. Guys with strongly worded, uninformed wild guesses post here.

Here's the absolute truth: "Just say no" and any related folk wisdom was all about substance use as a legal issue. It's useless for those of us who are attempting to approach it as a potentially fatal, chronic mental health issue.
For the record, I was a cigarette smoker for 25ish years. And was the guy that tried 1 zillion times to quit. I am now 1 year, 14 months, and I think 12 days (ain't doing the math) smoke free. Guess who got me hooked on cigarettes? The correct answer is me. I also have posted how I was prescribed legal drugs and figured out quick they were a dead end.

I spent years saying "It's just too hard, you don't understand". "If I don't get a smoke, I will just DIE!!" When I finally said, enough is enough, I sweated it out and did it. I'm not one to stand on the shoulders of experts and scream to the heavens "I need this, and it's somebody else's fault, such and such said so!!" ..... NOW. I was when I was addicted to my drug of choice......

Excuses are like assholes. We all have one, and they all stink Don't be an enabler
