~~"It's impossible," said pride. "It's risky," said experience. "It's pointless," said reason. "Give it a try," whispered the heart. ~~ Unknown
I really needed to come back here today. I was celebrating 1000 days of being quit and then I remembered why I always came back here. To remind those who still lurk in the shadows that it's ok to come into the light!!
Listen to the whispers of your heart. It's time to stop hiding because quitting is risky. Smoking is riskier.
Listen to the whispers of those who are loving you right now, sliently begging you to quit. It's not impossible...it is soooo not impossible!! In fact, it's been done :) Come out from behind the smoke and revel in your smoke free world!
Listen to the whispers of your spirit...your soul. Being chained to an addiction is wearing at you whether you acknowledge it or not. It tears at your self-worth. It damages your very life. It keeps you a prisoner.
You are so much more than you know!! The creativity in you....the sparkle in you.....the very joy of you....is whispering for you to let go. Let go of the smoking. Let go of the isolation. Let go of the chains of addiction. Release yourself and begin to heal. Begin to blossom. Begin to shine.
Because you will. When you quit smoking, you will have no choice! You will glow, my friend. I promise you. Because the more you allow the hidden you to emerge, the more your heart will sing! The beauty of the world becomes more clear. The loveliness of life will catch your eye. And the peace you have longed for will embrace you.
You can do this. We will be here to support you, to listen to you, and to whisper, "You're remarkable" when you need to hear it.
