I am again in agreement with you. It is absolutly best to do the MC clean. From her original post I just saw it as a whole rationalized misive on excuses to fail with smoking being a strong central point as an excuse not to get started on the MC.
She is obviously focused on the MC at this point so I just want to keep encouraging her to just dive right in and just start moving in a positive and beneficial direction as that is a great motivator to get one to start to focus on a path. As Im sure you probably well know from your own experience with an addiction of 30 years that pretty much taking the first step irregardles of anything else is *the* most important part.
