How to control myself? (Addictions)
#1
Question 
I've been trying to control alcohol and tobacco since a decade and I've been successful to an extent
My philosophy towards these things was like: As long as you can keep them under control, you don't have a problem
But, I've recently noticed that this is not the case
There are not many self-help groups like AA for atheists
I'm currently living in New Zealand
Any suggestions?

Quote below from the wiki link

Quote:Secular Organizations For Sobriety (SOS), also known as Save Our Selves,[1] is a non-profit network of autonomous addiction recovery groups. The program stresses the need to place the highest priority on sobriety and uses mutual support to assist members in achieving this goal. The Suggested Guidelines for Sobriety emphasize rational decision-making and are not religious or spiritual in nature. SOS represents an alternative to the spiritually based addiction recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). SOS members may also attend AA meetings, but SOS does not view spirituality or surrender to a Higher Power as being necessary to maintain abstinence.[2][3]
