Fear of Quitting

Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Oct 13, 2015

Our fears are more numerous than our dangers,
and we suffer more in our imagination than in reality.
Seneca

I was so afraid to quit! I was afraid that I would miss my constant companion. I was afraid that I would never "get" to smoke again! I was afraid that I would "try" and fail! I was afraid that I would become one of those EX - smokers who hate anything closely related to tobacco!!!!

HA! The whole time I was afraid of all the wrong things! I SHOULD HAVE been afraid of Smoking Related Illness! But you know what? It never really crossed my mind ......until! Yep! Too late! Now I have the BIG Smoke Related Illness - COPD!

What did I imagine a quit would look like? Well, I thought that I would have that skin crawlly feeling forever! I thought that I'd always wish I had a Sickerette! I thought that I would have to be Super-Human depriving myself the one kick-back relax my-time activity I allowed myself to indulge in!

Little did I know that I was about to embark on the most Spiritually Expansive, Personally Maturing, Physically Renewing journey of self-exploration that I could ever imagine! Oh, how I wish I had known before I got sick!

But I'm GRATEFUL every day for this journey! And YES, I'm PROUD to be one of those EXers who left Nicotine behind FOREVER! Now I kick back and relax naturally - not because I NEED MY FIX! But because I'M ADDICTION FREE!

So NEWBIE! Will you change? ABSOLUTELY - you will discover the NEW YOU - so much better than you could ever imagine!

There's only one rule: keep those Sickerettes away from your face! All the rest will happen naturally!
