Quitting Smoking is definitely difficult but Doable!

And vital to our quality of living, I know that it's not easy because I remember only too well how difficult it was and there were times when I felt like throwing my hands up in the air and driving to the store and buy a carton of cigarettes instead of just a pk but I promised myself the night before quitting that I'd never pick up another cigarette as long as I live and I don't break promises to anybody including myself so I'd come online and either write a blog or just read Dale's page concerning the first 4 months of a quit which always strengthened my resolve to keep plowing forward and I knew that it had to get easier and guess what? It did and will for each and everyone quitting but you must stick with your quit  so hang on tight and continue to be willing, determined and totally committed to succeed and you can and will be successful! Isn't your health, your life and your family worth a few weeks of mood swings and withdrawals? I remember wanting to scream one second and cry or laugh the next and my younger sister got me so stressed out about my 30 day mark that if I could've, I would've reached through the phone and ripped her face off but I threw my phone instead but luckily I didn't break it so I came on line and blogged about it which got me through, if there's a will then there's always a way because life's going to happen good or bad whether we smoke or not and I choose NOT and so can YOU! Our lives are way too short to knowingly continue to slowly kill ourselves and in opinion there's no EXcuse on the face of this earth that's good enough to screw up a perfectly beautiful quit so hang tough and keep stacking up those precious smoke free days! Whew sorry if I'm sounding like a broken record but I want everyone to choose life over cigarettes and like everyone I have my struggles and I have my days that nothing seems to go right and I have days of excruciating pain but I won't let anything get in the way of the best gift that I'll give myself which is my precious quit besides I know that relapsing would totally Suck Big Time and I'm never ever, ever going back to Day One but I'll smile at all my Days WON that I have because no matter what is happening in my life I'm living a life of Freedom and I'm reaping the benefits of an Ex Smoker and I can breathe now and breathing is vital to living!!!!
