Sometimes It Helps

~~Stop worrying about what you have to lose and start focusing on all you have to gain.~~  Unknown

 

Sometimes it helps to get it on paper.

What you have to lose by quitting:

*bad health

*smelling horrible

*isolation

*digging for change for that extra pack

*burning your clothes, your hand, your car seat.....

*active addiction

*anxiety when you need to smoke but can't

*bad skin, teeth, breath, stained fingers

Ok, I tried to come up with what we really lose....and couldn't come up with losing anything good.  And I tried!!  I tried to remember what it was like to smoke, but all the "good" feelings associated with smoking are gone for me.

What we have to gain:

*time

*money

*freedom from addiction

*taste buds working again

*smelling pretty...or at least better

*hugs and kisses from those who used to shy away from the smell

*self-respect, confidence

*better hair, skin, teeth, nails

Hmmm.......This is a great start and I could go on!!  But if you are struggling, you need to do this, not me.  Try it!!  It really, really works when you write it down.

May you all be enjoying a lovely, serene Sunday!!
