To fully eliminate addiction, you must observe, comprehend, and eliminate the egos that characterize it.

Many conventional programs exist to help overcome smoking. However, such results are limited, because the egos of smoking will continue to exist in the subconsciousness awaiting the next lifetime or opportunity to arise.

While some programs can be useful, the best method is self-observation and meditation.
