I didn't / don't have any expectations (and it's served me well)

Expectations: It ISN'T what I expected, but, I tried.

(My dad points to my happiness as a gift-I think it's the ability to enjoy each day)


Expectations are why so many marriages fail.

Expectations are why 94% of quitters don't make it a year smoke free.


We must flow with life NOT KNOWING THE OUTCOME.

Isn't that what makes life difficult? Hardships and wondering when they will end? Not knowing why someone's life was taken unexpectedly?  Being stuck on the side of the road with a mechanical failure wishing you had roadside assistance insurance and wondering how much the mechanic is going to charge?


unknowns and uncertainties are what frighten us.


The good news is if you accept life as it happens, there is no need to fear it.

No need to be unhappy or worried about the other shoe dropping.




You can be happy, but, you must allow it.

You can quit smoking, but, you must allow it.


The only outcome without strings is one you pay for with cash.





What expectations did you have of quitting?
