I was just on a video call with someone from the site (excuses, excuses)

They had quit but fell into some emotional quicksand and couldn't get back into the quitting frame of mind


they quit the end of the year and made it almost two weeks.

they had a week between one major event and starting another semester in school.

I told them "If you don't start your quit before you start back to school, you won't want to do it until

the whole semester is complete"

They kind of questioned me as to why I believed that and I said. "because our excuses to keep

smoking are usually logical to us. If they weren't, we wouldn't believe them.  And because you are starting the

semester smoking, you will not be able to give up the crutch until you are through the semester."


Killing yourself IS NOT LOGICAL. So why do we choose that over what we know as fact  in addition to just plain

common sense?

It's like saying I'm going to quit in 10 months, or by the time I'm 30, or whatever.

You won't do it until you quit putting it off.
