So often, people ask if your ever really free of smoking, or the craves that are associated with it. I wondered this myself as the years passed after my quit. After five years, every now and then I would get a crave or as Dale would say, a memory of smoking.
To me it felt like a hollow crave. Something to notice and then dismiss. But those thoughts never really bothered me for you see, I was comfortable with the fact that I don’t smoke. I was happy that I’d turned my life around and you know what? Nine times out of ten, I actually laughed a little to myself when this would happen.
The main thing is I was just so happy that I’d made it to the other side of addiction. I was happy that I could plan my day around my activities instead of around my addiction. Cigarettes were part of every single thing I did every day. And now, there’s not even a scrap of my old addiction left.
How do I know that? Because right now I’m dealing with something in my life more stressful than I’ve ever had to deal with before. And you know what? Right now as I write this is the first time I’ve even THOUGHT of a cigarette and that was simply so I could write this.
Sure, I’m still an addict. You never really lose that trait or gene that makes us capable of becoming addicted, but I’m no longer a cigarette addict. To me, it’s like I never smoked in the first place. It’s a thing of the past that means nothing now.
So never believe you’ll never find peace. Never believe that you can’t enjoy life without a cigarette because I and so many others like me are living proof that this simply is not true.There is peace on your horizon. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is freedom there for anyone who seeks it. Make that freedom a shining beacon within your mind and before long you too won’t even WANT to think about a cigarette anymore. In fact, you’ll wonder why you ever did!
ONWARD TO FREEDOM!!!
Now on to the update. The facebook page is beginning to spread more and more rapidly, and we’re learning some things. Also, we’re beginning phase two of the investigation. This is where it starts to get interesting.
I wish I could tell all of you more but right now, it’s best to keep what we’ve found under wraps as we continue. The information we found may not actually find Falon, but it will get us a step closer. Just like quitting smoking, one step at a time.
As always, if you haven’t shared and liked the facebook page, please do so. And if you could also share our gofundme page it would be appreciated as well. Will be in touch and thank you for all of your support!
