It seems that we often forget to "stop and smell the roses".
When we quit smoking we can't wait to achieve the status of EX. And it is why when getting craves after 50-60-100 days seems so unfair, and so disappointing. We want to have arrived already!
I know I was guilty of it, and even when told "quitting is not an event, but a process, a journey", I did not really hear it.
But I do now, and as harsh as this might sound we are still addicts, for the rest of our lives; addicts who make a conscious decision every minute, hours, day, not to smoke anymore.
Don't be impatient to arrive, the arriving is happening every time we make the right choice!
Enjoy your new status of EX, it's Christmas, enjoy the healthier you as you are today. I know I am, and because of the biggest day of giving, I lay all my gratitude, just out of my heart, in front of you all.
Thank you for teaching me a new life, thank you for giving me a new life.
We should all stop and enjoy the moment, for becoming an EX is a wonderful thing in our lives!
Merry Christmas to all my EX friends!
