You have all heard it here from so many wise people "Don't quit on your quit".  You may think you can't do it anymore.  You may be tired of quitting.  You may simply hate coming back here saying "I need to start over....again."


Can I take this one step further?  Don't quit on your quit but even more, don't quit on you.  Please don't give up on yourself.  And every time you smoke after you quit, you get a little harder on yourself.  You believe a little less.  You may even feel a bit crushed.


Please stop.  Step away from your quit/smoke/quit cycle for a moment and renew your spirit.  Give yourself the love that you need.  Give yourself that "You are a badass" pep talk that you need.  And become your own best friend.


Then get back on the quit wagon and kill it!!  Not by focusing on craves or days or NRTs, but by focusing on you.  Nurture yourself during your quit.  Pamper yourself.  Love yourself.  And if you stumble along the way, brush yourself off and continue forward without beating yourself up.  You either succeed or you learn. 


The best things do come to those who don't give up.  A strong sense of self, a beautiful aura of confidence, and a powerful surge of courage that will see you through other challenges in your life.


Ok.  That's all.  Don't give up on yourself.  Don't hate on yourself.  I just wanted you to know.
