Hey everyone, I have done really well in the past but the nicotine had persuaded me that cigarettes would be a good idea. I'm going on holiday in August, and something in my mind was saying oh you need a cig when your on the beach, so I was going to put off quitting altogether till after my holiday. Now I'm gaining the strength to question these beliefs and I've realised why would I need a cig on the beach, or anywhere else for that matter! The only reason is if I am still addicted. There is nothing good about smoking. I feel so guilty when I wake up from a night out and I have been smoking. I had one today at about 3pm but I am starting my quit from 5pm today as I really don't want one now. I know I can beat this again!
PS I was going along the lines that stopping smoking can make you put on weight. But I have read a lot of articles that say that although smoking can make you have a slightly lower bmi index, it also causes people to suffer from abdominal obesity which is actually what I have got, because my waist is over 35 inches!! Also when I stopped before, my skin and hair looked so much more healthy, so although it may be a little bit vain, this is another plus from stopping.
Hope everyone is doing well!
