Welcome to NicA!
Greetings to all my fellow nicotine ad-dicts! Nicotine Anonymous welcomes you! As Nicotine Anonymous' Third Tra-dition states, "The only requirement for Nicotine Anonymous membership is a desire to stop using nicotine."
I love the way Tradition Three is so open and welcoming in spirit. Anyone regardless of their status of nicotine use or any other trait can join Nicotine Anonymous with only the desire to stop using nicotine. Even if you just have a slight desire to get nicotine-free, you will not be turned away.
This program is here to help all nicotine addicts. We may have different opinions and though you might not take all sug-gestions that are offered to gain free-dom from nicotine, you are still wel-come. I have heard it said, "take what you like and leave the rest." You are still welcome. You may find your nicotine freedom right away or struggle for a while. You are still welcome. It does not matter what form of nicotine delivery you use, you are still welcome.
Where else can you go to hear the expe-rience, strength and hope of other nico-tine addicts in recovery? Nicotine Anon-ymous has another tradition that says our primary purpose is to help the still-suffering nicotine addict. So if you are a newcomer, know that you are the life-blood of the fellowship. You will proba-bly be told at meetings that you are the most important person in the room. We hope you will "keep showing up" to meetings and that you will find freedom from nicotine with Nicotine Anonymous.
