Life is full of ups and downs, good times and bad times and life is going to happen whether we smoke or not and I always figured that I just couldn't quit and I wasn't even sure if I really wanted to but when I finally wised up and figured out that I wasn't invincible that I could actually die a slow painful death that's most likely caused by smoking, I think when I found out that I have mild copd that a light bulb came on in my head and thankfully I brightened up and found this site and read everything I could to strengthen my resolve. Quitting smoking is definitely difficult but with the right mindset it's absolutely Doable but you must want it and you need to believe in yourself and be willing, determined and totally committed to succeed and you can and will be successful one precious smoke free day at a time, is it easy? HELL NO!!! is it worth it? HELL YES!!! It's within your grasp so grab on and hold on tight and don't let go until you are through the roller coaster ups and downs then you can start reaping the benefits of an Ex Smoker. I always push vigilance because once we have the Freedom we don't want to - N.E.F - Never Ever Forget - the early days and wks of our quits because once we're Free we know that Life is Grand Without A Cigarette In Hand and another Day ONE would really suck big time but but Another Day WON is totally awesome!
