Tuesday, at lunch, I twisted open a bottle of Honest Tea (green tea and Moroccan mint, if you were curious). Here's what I found under the cap...
Early in your quit, when you're having to work the hardest, please think of each minute as a blessing - even if it feels like a curse at that moment! No matter what you have to work through, work through it! Each minute that you do not use tobacco or nicotine is another minute that you don't have to go back and repeat.
Powerful Elders here will gladly exclaim: "Better another Day Won than another Day One."
Truth. Right there. You just gotta believe it's possible for you.
And every minute, every day, every week, every month and year that you protect your Quit - it's a miracle! Not a miracle in the sense that you're flabbergasted you had the gumption to survive it. Not a miracle that required Divine Intervention or a Cosmic Planetary Alignment. No, I'm talking about a miracle as a rare gift! As a blessing! As a wish come true - because you willed it to be true...and real! You worked harder (and smarter, right?) to get to the smoke-free place you are right now - and it's a miracle that you created for yourself!
Respect your Quits, dear Newbies! It's precious. It's treasure. It's a gift. And for those of us who have unshakable faith in our Quits, it's a sacred devotion.
It's an unrepeatable, once-in-a-lifetime miracle!
So, stay true out there, my friends!
Believe it's possible!
(by the way, that's not me underneath the bottle cap...)
