In other words, begin where you are.
Please stop waiting.
Sometimes delay can have very serious consequences.
As an addict I wanted the parade, the grand announcement, the regal launch, the ceremonial countdown, the press conference, the complete preparation with the guarantee of success before I thought I could start......before I could visualize what starting even looked like.
Working through these things, waiting to make them happen, burns through precious time. And it is a trick.....a trick that addiction plays to keep us enslaved.
Begin where you are, but begin.
If all you can do is crawl,
One moment at a time, if you don't pick up that cigarette you'll be up and dancing eventually.
(Though at first, most of us tend to complain about the music a bit till we find our own rhythm, but that's okay too. It's just a mask for our fear of being judged for how we dance. Stay on the dance floor and that will fall away.)
