It takes time to relearn life!

When I decided to bite the bullet and stop playing Russian Roulette with my life I'll tell you that I wasn't really sure if I could quit or even if I wanted to but I was just told I had mild copd and that scared me enough to know that I didn't want to end up on oxygen 7/ 24 or worse die a slow painful death which would most likely be smoking related so I searched for quit smoking programs on line and decided on Ex and to make a long story short I totally got a wealth of information here but I hid in the shadows and once I quit I forgot about the site until my 18th day when I was struggling to the point of jumping in my car and buying a carton of cigarettes instead of just a pack, I really don't know if I would've or not I'd like to think I wouldn't have because the night before quitting I promised myself that I'd never ever pick up another cigarette as long as I live and i dont break promises to anyone including myself but thankfully I remembered this site and got on line and commented on something and then someone noticed me and suggested I tell the community a little about myself and my quit that was 1,186 glorious days ago. Quitting smoking is definitely difficult to say the least but it's absolutely Doable and definitely worth it so chin up, hang tough and plow through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and mood swings so you can come out the other side smiling because there's absolutely life after cigarettes and it's yours for the taking but you must stick with your quit and keep stacking up those precious DOF because anything in this life worth having takes time and effort and quitting smoking and Remaining Quit should be at the top of the list of things to do and our lives literally depends on us to bite the bullet because in my opinion life is way too short to knowingly continue to slowly kill ourselves so get through the rough patches and start reaping the benefits of an Ex Smoker and as Dale says the only way out is through but boy oh boy it's worth it.
