I quit the smokes 25 years ago, I quit the booze 17 years ago this past Jan 1st. I didn't have any kind of support group, but I might should have. I talked to a guy once from AA who said I was just a dry drunk, but I suppose that could be said for guys who quit with a support group too. At any rate what's done is done. My wife doesn't care why I don't smoke and drink anymore, she's just glad I chose to become someone who doesn't use anything to alter my consciousness.
