"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot
change, the courage to change the things I can, and the
wisdom to know the difference."

This prayer can be interpreted in a nonsectarian way, for
use even by atheists and agnostics. The key is to focus on
the principles of acceptance, courage, and wisdom.

•To members of NicA, acceptance means knowing that they
cannot control the strength of their craving for nicotine.
Instead of denying or fighting this craving, they fully admit
its physical and psychological power.
•Members also learn to deal with craving in ways that do not
involve lighting up a cigarette or digging into a can of chewing
tobacco. This is the courage to change by choosing a new
response--finding ways to live with a craving until it passes.
•Of course, this can be hard. So, NicA emphasizes the wisdom
of turning to a Higher Power for strength. This can be any
source of outside help. For some people, it is the God of a
religious tradition. For others, it is simply their NicA group or
the example set by a sponsor--a mentor who has longer
experience with the program.
