Anyone in addiction knows how hard it is to remove the addition. Recently watched one video about the Diamond Sutra. The teacher coincidently mentioned the rules of removing drug addiction. I translated it below.
There are four rules to follow if you seriously decide to quit or remove the addiction.
Rule #1 Have Strong Determination and Willpower
Rule #2 When Determination Is Shaking, Think About the Disadvantage of Drug Addiction
Rule #3 Analyse the Motivation or Cause of the First Time Smoking and Try to Resolve It
Rule #4 After Removing Drug Addiction, In Case Take It Again, Then It Means Completely Failed. Must Keep Alert to Yourself, Can Not Fail Again Next Time. (Follow Rule #1)
