The Final Count Down

Blog Post created by CoraLynnWhiteFontaine33 on Dec 2, 2020

My quit date is December 11, 2020.

    I have not smoked sickarettes since Sunday, 11/29/2020. I still vape, and pretty much all day.     So, I have 9 days until I quit vaping for good. I am on Zyban to help me with my quit. I have been on it for nearly 3 weeks. It has helped me so far to slow down and quit smoking, now its almost time to stop vaping too.

    I have been smoking for 15 years. I have wanted to quit for 15 years, also. Really, I did not want to start to begin with. I watched my Great Aunt die of cancer and emphysema. The last thing she said to me was, "Never start smoking, Coco, it's a horrible habit." I promised I never would. I was 9 years old. 9 years later, when I was 18 years old, I started smoking.

    I have tried to quit numerous times. This time I have done so much to get myself prepared, educated, and ready. I am ready to quit for good.

    I have Asthma and I don't want to have more problems with my health. I have lost 60 pounds in the last couple of years, but mostly this year. I am 5 foot 2 inches tall, I got up to 250 pounds. Today i am 190 pounds. I am very excited about this.

    I know that I have an addictive personality. I have struggled with drug addiction since I was 18 years old. I am an alcoholic, and I was dependent on THC for support for my Schitzo-Affective disorder, among other mental health issues, since I was 18 years old as well. I quit drinking on February 14, 2016 and stayed sober until September of 2020, when I relapsed for one night and then promptly got back on the wagon. I am also sober from Marijuana, among other drugs. I feel so much better, now that I am sober.

    The only addiction left to kick is the nicotine. I am so, very ready to stop being a slave to nicotine. I feel that if you are using drugs, whether natural or man-made, except for prescritions, that you are polluting your body, and therefore, God's Temple. I am ready to clean myself and be as pure as possible for my Saviour.

    This is the first blog I have written. I just wanted to introduce myself. Thank you, very much, it feels great to be part of The Ex Community.

    I am ready for the final countdown.
