Day 2

Blog Post created by ABorgen on Feb 16, 2017

Well, I am 2 days into my smoke journey. It would have been the third day, but I had a slip on my first day. I have had a health scare that opened my eyes to the fact that it is time for me to quit. I started smoking at 14 years old and I am now 37. I have tried to quit numerous times in the past, but the longest I went was around 9 months. I loved smoking. It comforted me. It is a time my husband and I shared so many conversations together in our garage. It was a stress reliever. It was my crutch through many good times and bad times in life I have made excuses for it. I'm already overweight, and I'll just gain more if I quit. I need to do it just through school. I'll quit this summer, I'll quit this fall. I will quit when I become pregnant. Well, I just recently found out that children are not an option for me.  There goes that plan!  I am tired of the excuses. I just want to succeed at this and get healthy. So, here I am. Day 2. I've never joined any support groups in the past, so I'm hoping this will help. Hopefully it will work for me and I in turn can help others. Here we go!
