~~I'm not perfect.....and I embrace that.~~ Unknown
Soooo....let's get started, shall we? I recently broke some bones in my foot while playing soccer with my grandson. I got my 33 year old son upset with me, making me feel like the worst mom in the world. I can't balance a checkbook....actually, even worse. I don't use a checkbook, it's all in my head. I'm flawed. I know it and it works for me.
So when I come on here with my suggestions for quitting and my opinions on being human and my hopes for your future, it isn't because I live such a pristine life. It isn't because everything works out for me. It isn't because I quit smoking so easily or gracefully (I once wore two different colored shoes to work and never noticed).
It's because if I can quit, anyone can. It's because I...in my stumbling, rambly kind of way...care about you and your quit. It's because I hate the thought of anyone feeling isolated or lonely or rejected especially when they quit.
I don't have your answers....but you do. All I can do is suggest, support, and educate.
I quit. You can. There is no difference between us. In fact, I'm positive that you have skills I don't possess. You have talents I can only admire rather than mimic. You have knowledge and strengths and competence that I will never have. Use it all. Gather everything that's good and positive and strong in you and use it to quit smoking.
I know you can quit.....you know how to quit. You only have to believe in yourself.
