Feeling confident!

Blog Post created by ThePearlWolf on Mar 3, 2018

I've tried to quit so many times, it's embarrassing, but for some reason, this time seems easier.  This time, I feel like I don't have to fight as hard.  This time, I feel like it's natural to not smoke.  This time, I'm all in and I have confidence in myself.  If I'm being 100% truthful, the day after I quit, I felt like I had the flu and I've felt sick at least 50% of the time since then so I'm sure that's helped me in my quest to stop smoking but now that I'm 7 days in, it doesn't matter if that's the only reason it's been easier this time.  I'm past the hump.  Any slip now would be sheer laziness on my part and I will not let that happen.  I'm strong-willed and I know what I want and I want to quit smoking.  I want to be healthy.  I want to enjoy a long hike without having to stop frequently to catch my breath as I go up.  I want to stop searching for alternate hikes without large elevation gains when I go hiking with friends so I don't have to be embarrassed at how winded I get.  I want to quit being judged for how I smell.  I want to quit being a slave to smoking and take charge of my own life.
