Life is ALWAYS going to happen - it's how you respond that tells the tale.

 

Lots of things happen in life out of our control.

Smoking is not one of them. THAT is a choice! Choose wisely!

 

Life has its ups and downs, it’s thrilling and terrifying, easy and difficult..........quitting smoking.......... has a better ending!

 

Choose to deal with what life throws at you without smoking!

It IS a matter of life and breath.

 

Life IS grand when we don't smoke!!!

 

This is the REAL freedom – when you realize how much smoking controlled your life! This takes time to see clearly. But – it is SO worth the time it takes to unlearn this!

 

Isn't life grand with cleaner lungs?

 

You can CHOOSE how you will think today - grateful, or sad, or remorseful, or guilty, or wishing you could hide behind a cloud of smoke instead of dealing with what life has thrown at you.  Choose wisely!

 

There is no magic pill to take that will do the work for you. You must commit yourself to it 100%. If you do, I promise you will be successful. The payday will be both monetary and physical. You will literally be saving your own life.

 

Most importantly As you move forward, you make NEW memories for your associations and triggers

"Slipsies" Bewildered

There was a lot of slipping and sliding going on in my 5th month here.  I got this response from the original blog.  Why do people "slip"

 

Mrs.Rum

"There's an easy answer.  They DIDN't work hard.  They TALKED hard.  If you've been here long enough you can spot them a mile away.  Said what they thought sounded right, what we wanted to hear, all the things that made it sound like they were in it to win it.  But it always sounds off somehow.  And they are the ones who come back and have 'slipped'.  And yes, even after years of quit - they will slip because they didn't mean it.  The option stayed open.

By the same token you can tell the ones who mean it.  We almost never see them back here having slipped.
