I am smoke free for two years tomorrow! I will be without a computer so here is my Two Year Quit Blog…
So how did I get here, at BecomeAnEx.com, from smoking since I was 14 years old?
Way back then in the 1960’s smoking was the “in” thing to do… There was a lot of peer pressure, and I was shy and lonesome! However, that first puff tasted awful, and I literally fell off the stool in the “soda fountain” at the Dime Store! That first cigarette tasted awful, but everyone was laughing and egging me on, and I felt like I belonged!
It took a little time to get “addicted” to the drug, Nicotine. And it took me almost 50 years to quit! Please do not be foolish like I was!
Cravings are mostly a memory now, and I can quickly move on to something else, but my advice to you is quit way sooner than I did! Because smoking gave me C.O.P.D. (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). I am required to take two inhalers, each and every day, to help my lungs stay clear so I can breathe easier… My lungs will heal as much as they can, but if you quit much sooner than I did, your lungs can heal better from the ravages of smoking.
I had a cigarette lit near me, or in my face, most of the time, and now I feel totally complete without one! Deep down inside, don’t you truly want that too?
Knowing that the “addiction” to Nicotine is something you C A N overcome… if you just do N O T light up… Please think about it!
The freedom that I regained, being smoke free… well, it is priceless! And you can have it too! I wish you a very happy and smoke free “today” and let’s all keep our beautiful and precious quits, ok? Rosemary
