No one says every day will be a good day when you quit smoking

Non smokers have good and bad days too, right? Good days and bad days whether you ever smoked or not.

No one thinks quitting smoking is going to make everything bad go away do they?

Willingness opens the door to the acceptance that smoking is not required and fuels the positive direction you have chosen.

You don't have to worry about buying cigarettes, or running out, or choosing whether you should get cigarettes or food.

You don't have to worry about who sees you trying to hide your smoking or what you smell like, or scurry around to find a place to smoke.

There are some difficult days but if you can quit 2 days, or 4 days or 2 months, doesn't that prove to you that you can quit. Doesn't that say, hey I really can quit?

I promise you that you will have more good days than bad during your first 130 days if you are not being counterproductive with negative thinking about how hard it is or how you can't do it? People talk themselves out of their quit. There is no gun to their head making them smoke.

I would venture to say that the ratio is 10 good days to 1 bad day unless you dwell and fixate on smoking. But see, it's your choice.

So if someone on the verge of success at quitting is having one of those difficult days and someone else comes on and suggests they start vaping and it restarts or continues their addiction to nicotine, I believe it's irresponsible.
