Smoking in Drug Rehab

Stop Smoking Now

Active Addiction Allowed in Rehab?   I picked up tobacco again while I was in drug treatment   Email From Person Seeking Nicotine Addiction Treatment Smoking in drug rehab. I quit smoking tobacco 8 years ago. When I discovered I was pregnant, I found the willingness to stop using nicotine. Having a clean air environment for my son to grow and thrive in was important to me, and I stayed stopped. For 8 long years. Although I was able to put down the cancer sticks, I wasn’t able to put down my nightly glass of wine. Over the years, this glass turned into 2, then 3, then the full bottle, and then one bottle more. One morning my son was asking me why I was sleeping on the floor. I knew I needed help.

Is Tobacco Blocking Your Connection to Spirit?

Is Tobacco Blocking Your Connection to Spirit?   The Spiritual Path vs Nicotine In Native North American spiritual tradition, tobacco is a very sacred plant, used in ceremony and offered in gratitude for the gifts of the Earth.

Nicotine Rehab

Spectacular view in sobriety

In response to Serenity Vista’s Latest Press Release “Good for you! Nicotine rehab! I’ve watched too many CHILDREN beat alcohol or marijuana use, then get thoroughly hooked on cigarettes in their sobriety peer groups while their parents breathe misguided sighs of relief.” Nancy L. (Sobriety Advocate, Recovery Coach) quoted from LinkedIn   Excerpt From the Press Release Says Director John Derry: “We’d rather facilitate the full, long term recovery of a few people to achieve a full and rewarding life free of all addictions, than have a lot of people come through the doors and leave still addicted to smoking which is highly toxic and deadly”.

Some of them are acupuncture, hypnosis, Zyban, Vipassana meditation retreats, nicotine gum, nicotine inhalers, electric shock… the list is endless. Nicotine addiction is a powerful drug addiction. When 12 Step fellowships and drug rehabs became accepted by the mainstream as an admirable way to deal with addiction to alcohol and ‘other drugs’, nicotine did not make the list of ‘dangerous drugs’.
