~~Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you, I am I. I have to discover my own being; you have to discover your own...~~ Unknown
If you read enough posts here by different quitters, you will find a variety of tips, tricks, wisdom, and suggestions. You will also find success stories, stories of miracles, and heroics so amazing that it will make you tear up. But nothing you read will quit for you and you won't find the perfect prescription for an easy quit.
My quit is my quit and it worked well for me. But I can tell you that it won't work as well for you. Not because you are 'less than'....not at all!!! Not because you can't quit...of course you can!!!! Not even because you aren't trying hard enough or want it enough. Not true at all!!!
But my quit was tailor made for me. It fit me perfectly!! And those uncomfortable times during the early days of my quit were made more comfortable by me. My wants. My needs. My talents. My interests.
Believe it or not, your quit will be tailor made for you as well It will fit you to a tee!! Because it will be all about your wants, your needs, your talents, and your interests. Quits, you see, are as unique and incomparable as people are. What works for me will not necessarily work for you and what works for you may not work for the next person.
So when you say things like "quitting is so hard!", please remember you are saying that about YOUR quit. When you say "I want to scream at those cheery, happy quitters who are too positive", please remember that they may truly have positive experiences about their quits and it has nothing to do with your quit.
Keep your quit about you. Your feelings, your struggles, your experiences. Allow others to have their own feelings, struggles, and experiences. Because every quit is a unique challenge unto the quitter experiencing it and we don't want to in any way diminish their quits. And also because it isn't about you....as your quit should totally reflect!
You are a quit waiting to happen, you know. You'll find it within and when you do, you'll thrill yourself with the adventure of it all! Hard times? Probably. We all have them. Happy times? Ditto. But mixed in with all that will be something beautifully unique that will make your quit truly fit you. Just as it should. Then, my friend, you will be free.
