I realize that your therapist was trying to engage in "harm reduction," in effect, by suggesting a scented body spray, but please be aware that even though the scent may be rather pleasant, it still contains very dangerous chemicals that shouldn't be deliberately inhaled, know what I mean.

Please, however, consider starting counseling with a licensed therapist who has specialized in addiction counseling.  Some credentials to look for include CADC (certified alcohol and drug counselor) or CAC (certified addiction counselor).

This website should have some local counseling agencies that may have licensed substance abuse counselors:

http://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/ and can type one's zip code or state of residence into search.

Their toll-free 24/7 *referral* hotline:

1-800-662-HELP (4357).
