~~When you have something good....when you have something good, you don't play with it! You don't take chances with it! You don't take risks with it! When you got something good, you get every single thing you can get out of it! Because guess what? When you take care of something good, that something good takes care of you.~~ Eric Thomas
That something good I'm talking about is you. Yes, you!! I don't want you taking risks with you anymore. I don't want you taking chances. And when you smoke, that's exactly what you're doing. You are risking your health. You are risking your life. And yet, even with the warning signs...shortness of breath, gum disease, heart problems, stroke....you smoke. And in your addiction, you don't think about the negatives. That would put a damper on 'enjoying' the smoke. Instead, you shut off your mind while that nicotine soothes the craving you had. Smoking is giving you your 'fix'.
But when you have something good, you are supposed to get every single thing you can out of it!! You are full of creative energies left untapped. You are full of laughter, fun, and warmth all stuffed under the need for nicotine. You are so much more than you can ever realize as you smoke! Because you are buried underneath the addiction. Quitting brings out the very best you are....the sweetness, the wonder, the magic of you!
And you know what? When you take good care of you, your body, in turn...and your mind, and your spirit and your soul...all will take good care of you. You will find hidden treasures within yourself and those hidden treasures will bring light to your day and joy to your world. You will sing more, stress less. You will feel more generous, less isolated. You will hope more, hide less.
When you have something good, recognize it for what it is. YOU, my friend, are that good!! Don't risk yourself any longer. Don't take chances with your health. Don't risk death, disease, cancer because you don't want to let go of that addiction. Life is waiting for you because it recognizes the good you are. You are needed here. You have a purpose. And the world is better off because you are in it. So please don't risk all that you are for an addiction that takes so much away from you.
It's time to quit. And it's time to get every single thing you can out of you
