~~Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.~~ Miguel Angel Ruiz
Just imagine if you quit smoking and didn't have the option to fail.
Just imagine if you quit smoking and understood that you weren't missing anything.
Just imagine if you quit smoking and your body started healing immediately.
Just imagine if you quit smoking and you were happy about it.
You don't have to imagine any of this, really, because it could all be your reality. You have the ability to NOT fail. Don't give yourself the option to smoke again. You have the ability to understand that you aren't missing a thing by quitting because smoking doesn't change anything in your life for the better. It's an addiction, not an answer. Your body does start healing itself immediately when you quit smoking. It's like a miracle in action as your body knows how to keep itself going even when we try to destroy it by smoking. And happy about quitting? You can be, you should be. It's addict thinking to believe that quitting is a horrible punishment rather than life giving freedom.
You may not know it, but by quitting you are killing the addicted you and allowing the true you to fully take shape. That you who believed that you couldn't do anything magnificent? Gone!! That you who felt no one cared? Gone!! That you whose heart was small and whose spirit was heavy? Gone!!
The true you....that part of you who longs to enter the world whole and energized? That true you who wants to spread beautiful wings and soar with the eagles? That you who longs to sing and discover and enjoy life? She(He) is there....waiting for you to walk away from your addiction. Because the two yous cannot live together. Addiction kills anything that doesn't keep it going. And the true you won't settle for anything less than glorious. Because, my friend, that's who you truly are!
