~~Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.~~ Christian D Larson
I know anyone can quit smoking. I know this because I've seen it and I've lived it. But there was a time in my life that I wasn't so sure of myself. I doubted my abilities. I doubted myself. I did not believe in me. And I failed at my quit time and time again...reinforcing my own belief that I wasn't able to quit...I wasn't good enough to quit...I couldn't quit.
I hope none of you are as sad as that. I hope none of you feel the way I felt. Because it was a lie.
And if you are thinking the way I thought, your brain is lying to you as well. You ARE able to quit and you ARE good enough to quit and you CAN quit!!
Even more than that, you are worthy of good things in life....like living addiction free. And your life has meaning and you matter and all the lies you once believed will fall away if only you quit smoking. Because as the smoke clears and the nicotine no longer has the power to run your thoughts, you will know...you will believe....that there is something inside you greater than any obstacle. And you will smile to yourself and believe that you can do anything you set your mind to. And the relief and the satisfaction and the joy of quitting will never quite leave you because you did what you once thought was only possible for others.
So believe in yourself. Honor yourself. Commit to what you truly want...to live a life free of cigarettes. I believe in you :)
