Definition

In South Asia, we know that addictions are like relationships, full of angst and love and hate, and ambivalence.

And so when we finally quit a habit, we say that we "left" the habit in question. It's over, we tell the cigarettes (or alcohol or drugs). I am leaving you.

Usage

Looking healthy da, what happened?
"I left smoking"

Why you drinking fresh lime soda, have one hot drink no?
"No man, I left drinking."
