I am often asked how I have been successful on my first try at quitting smoking. Giving it some thought, I believe it boils down to the decision I made when I quit. I made up my mind that I would never smoke another cigarette NO MATTER WHAT. No ifs, ands, buts, life happenings, excuses, arguments with myself......no matter what!
You make the decision and honor it each and every minute and each and every day. I understand that is not so easy in the early days – but taking the expectation of smoking away makes it a bit easier, I think.
It is SO worth the commitment - the freedom is WONDERFUL!
