I wrote last week about quitting smoking. Walking was a side-effect of that. A real danger of quitting an addiction is replacing that addiction with another. There will always be people and companies who want to profit from your addiction. Take a look at the vaping industry; most of which is now owned by the same companies that own the cigarette manufacturers. I was keen not to fall into that trap. So – when I craved a cigarette, I got up from my desk and took a stroll.
