I am 100% FREE. It wasn't an easy thing to do. That's a bit of an understatement.
At times, I didn't believe I could do it.
At times, I still believed that a cigarette was the answer to a problem or a bad situation.
At times, I felt like quitting must be easier for everyone else than it was for me.
At times, I was absolutely convinced that MY addiction to nicotine was stronger and harder to beat than everyone else's addiction.
At times, I believed that everyone here on EX who was succeeding at quitting had some magic answer that I didn't have.
But the truth is that, while it may not be easy, it is SIMPLE: As long as you do not put any nicotine into your body, you are succeeding, regardless of how you are feeling at any given moment.
Now cling to that truth. And believe that every single day without nicotine brings you closer to your NEW NORMAL.
And, slowly but surely, that new normal will fit you like a glove. I promise.
