~~The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.~~ Oprah Winfrey
I love a good adventure!! They keep me motivated, energized, and challenged. And, let's face it, they're fun!! Who knows what will happen?! Anticipation is a delightful feeling!
Of course quitting is an adventure!! It's thrilling and scary and exciting...all the things that make adventure fun!! If you only had reluctance, depression, and fear to go on, quitting would become quite a.....chore!! Who would do that to themselves????
You need something to look forward to, right? Something to keep you motivated. Something to get excited about.
And quitting can be that! You are allowing your body to heal. Not enough? You are going to smell FANTASTIC!! Still not enough? You will save tons of money and I mean TONS!! Ok, maybe just a lot of it, but still....wow!! Money!! You will gain confidence, you will look prettier, you will feel like you truly are a victorious warrior.
So when you are worried about your quit and you are reluctant to take that final step and you are afraid of what might happen, don't forget to weave in all the things that make adventures great! The joys of being even a day smoke free. The excitement of being brave. The anticipation of a quit that will only get better. Because all these things are also true when you quit.
Every moment you don't smoke is minutes you gain in life. To hug your child, to thank your parents, to fall in love. To really live the way you were meant to live. With passion. With joy. And with freedom.
