Today I want to post the other part of this thought. I left the Part 1 off on purpose when I wrote the other post.
Quitting smoking is much as I described in Part 1.
Smoking is much as a sandstorm in your body. There is a large buildup of tar and other substances in your lungs, muscles ( like your heart), and many other areas.
Your brain becomes polluted with Nicotine and is fooled into thinking it needs it to continue doing it's job.
Now you have decided to quit smoking.
It doesn't, and can't happen overnight. It took years to build all these toxins up. Now it will take time to clean things up and retrain your mind and body to live without Nicotine.
You begin and take it one minute at a time. After a time you are going a day without thinking of smoking, then a week.
I won't say that you will never think of smoking again, but when you do, it will just be a fleeting thought.
Are you willing to work to clean up your body (oasis)?
Without it being cleaned your life is shortened considerably.
I learned late, but I learned well that I would not be here long without cleaning my oasis up.
It takes time, but it can definately be done.
As you must first clean the sands away, so must you clean out your body.
You clean and repair the oasis one thing at a time, so you must clean your body one step at a time.
Be safe and best wishes on your journey and your cleaning.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
