I used to think that I would never quit smoking and most of the time I thought I just couldn't and then sometimes I thought I really didn't want to anyway and then I thought that I can't quit because smoking calms my nerves which I now know is total BS because it doesn't help whatsoever and after I had some time under my belt it was like wow I can handle stress, happiness, Anger, being sad or any situation so much better without the cancer sticks, it was one of those AHA moments I'm not really sure when that happened, I think it was around the 3 and a half month mark but wow what a great feeling. We actually can handle any situation so much better because we're not sitting in a cloud of smoke with a cigarette dangling from the mouth with an overflowing gross stinky ashtray scratching the head trying to figure out what to do instead we have a clear head once you get to that good place in the quit that is! So you can actually get around and do something about issue, there really is Life after cigarettes and it's all positive, I can't think of one positive thing about smoking because now that I'm smokefree and I have to say it because it's true I'm a Happy Quitter and I'm never going back to the clutches of the dreaded nicotine poison which I know will slowly kill me so in my opinion there's nothing but negatives to smoking and all positives to quitting! so quit smoking if you haven't already and if you are struggling please don't throw your quit away instead embrace it, nurture it and protect it and never ever take it for granted because it's the best gift that you'll ever give yourself which is the gift of LIFE! Laughter is the best medicine for a crave buster and I learned that right here on this site by several people helping me through an horrendous craving so I watched a lot of comedy TV, movies and YouTube because you can't smoke when you are laughing so hard that your belly hurts, I read a blog last night that reminded me of this, I posted this on their blog and I'm sharing it mine this morning.
