The Beautiful Truth

Blog Post created by Hedy1989 on Oct 31, 2019

I almost called this post the Ugly Truth, but changed my mind, because, although it may have an ugly side (me not really quitting on my quit date), the beautiful part of it is what I'm going to focus on. My original quit date was supposed to be sometime around a couple of weeks ago. I don't recall the exact date, because it never happened!  I injured myself doing the tent and shortly after, realized that I had some e-juice left over, so I kept right on truckin. I laid on the couch for what seemed like days (it was). In between chiropractor visits, I watched TV shows, movies, read a lot, but totally avoided this or any other site that had to do with vaping...I was glad for the extra juice and just went into ignore/denial mode (the viper was happy about that and honestly, so was I). I would worry about that quit date later, I told myself. I will deal with it later. The juice ran out on the 22nd and I haven't looked back (at least not long enough to start again). I seriously contemplated just putting it off until the new year and planned on getting more supplies, but something in me just didn't. I was ready to be done. Today is the 9th day of no vaping and I'm feeling pretty good. In a way, I've put it out of my mind and have told myself it's not something I do anymore, it's not who I am and doesn't fit with my identity anymore. I told one of my friends that I quit and he looked at me and said 'good, it's not very becoming of you'...I had to laugh at that one. I have told myself a thousand times that vaping gave me nothing and actually has probably damaged my still aching lungs. I have had some cravings and wild urges to run out and buy some supplies a couple of times, but my dear husband and some friends have been very supportive. Not to mention, I'm a daughter of the Most High...so no, it's not very becoming of me at all.

I am a warrior and a flesh crucifier  Woohoo!!
