New beginnings Day 1

Blog Post created by Verghese on Feb 2, 2018

I have been a smoker now for 22 years.  I also a very heavy smoker during this time.  Recently there have been a major life events that has made me more motivated to quit then ever.  I am about to become a father for the first time at 40. Yay!


Although this is a great motivator in the last 2 months I have quit cold turkey 3 times.  Each time I get to Day 4 and then collapse. I registered on this site and already I have been so inspired by reading everyones posts.  I can really relate to everyones experiences and advice.  


I find it hard to share as a guy and just shy I guess but I have decided that this attempt I am going to participate in this program.  Thanks for all your posts and to my fellow new quitters, I would like to send out encouragement and hope.
