~~I believe in the person I want to become.~~ Unknown
That's what motivated my quit. Believing that I was better than being just a smoker who pretended to live. Who pretended that smoking wasn't running my world...my days....my routine.
684 days ago I quit. And I have been on cloud 9 ever since!! The joy in each day....wow!! The time spent with family....priceless!! The freedom from addiction....miraculous!!
I hope you find it in yourself to believe in the person you want to become. You are an amazing soul who deserves a life full of beauty....freedom....love....all good things. Because overall, life is good. Even in my worst moments since I quit smoking, I have found reasons to feel hope....joy....gratitude. Nothing in my life is "all bad".
So love yourself enough to quit. Know that the discomfort is temporary and will lessen each day you chose to be positive, hopeful, and kind to yourself. Believe in the person you want to become.
And most of all, know.....way down in your heart....that you deserve so much more than your addicted self will ever allow you to have!! You need to let go in order to gain everything!!
My thoughts and prayers are always with you here.....gentle hugs to all of you :)
