True Love: An expanded definition

No author listed, FreeSVG, CC0 Public Domain
We tend to think of true love as romantic: a soulmate, perfectly compatible sexually and in day-to-day life, perhaps even having met as in the movies: swoon at first sight.

May we all find such love but, fortunately, if we allow ourselves to expand from that definition, true love can manifest in a number of ways. We may be more pleased with our life if we search out or stop to appreciate another form(s) of true love. I describe some in my Psychology Today article today.

Stopping Smoking . . . and other addictions

Today’s COVID and racial stresses atop modern life's challenges are tempting smokers to light up even more than usual, and even some non-smokers to take up the habit, a most deadly one. Used as directed, smokinggreatly increases the risk of cancer, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, breathing problems (COPD) and, yes, COVID killing you.


The 7-step plan I offer in my Psychology Today article today should help not only smokers but users of other dangerous drugs, from alcohol to marijuana, MDMA to opioids.
