~~Today's Mantra: I forgive myself for buying into the illusion that I am lacking in any way.~~ Unknown
Did you ever wonder why you can't seem to stick a quit when no one else seems to have that problem? Maybe you think that there's something wrong with you. Maybe you think you're odd or sad or different. Maybe you feel like a failure.
It's time to stop. Right now, really stop. Because that kind of thinking is just wrong. It may be your addiction talking. It may be echoes of family members speaking their ignorance. It may be a combination of different things. Whatever it is, it is so not the truth.

You were not put on this earth to die a smoker. You were not offered life just so you can feel bad about yourself and shrink into a nicotine cloud. You were not put into this world to feel like a failure.
