I have seen many people use the acronymn N.O.P.E. in their posts; Not One Puff Ever. I read the stories of succesful quitters who made a decision to never smoke again. I admire people who can do that. People who can look into the future and say NEVER.
I can't do that. The very thought of never having another cigarette again makes my hyperventilate.
What I can do, and what I do everyday, is promise not to smoke today. And I can keep adding day after day of not smoking up until it becomes forever.
That is my approach to staying smoke-free.
Is this just semantics? Just a mind-game? Yeah...probably. But it is working for me.
Smoke free today
