I have wanted to quit smoking for so long that its almost been like a fight between Me & Mr Nicotine. I have been a failure twice at doing this and yet this time i feel in control and ready to do it.
I intended to quit on the 31st Oct 2010, but somehow i managed to say NO MORE on the 24th Oct, a week earlier than planned and now i want to stay Smoke Free. FOREVER
Reason one for quitting, is i want to be around for my children and hopefully one day Grandchildren, i also dont want my kids to think its COOL to smoke, hence i smoked outside, it was my choice to smoke and not theirs so why put them through it too.
Reason Two, my husband gave up and i failed so i want to be the same as him, Smoke Free. I want him to kiss me and not smell or taste that YUCKY smell that smoking gives you.
Reason Three, I want to save money of course but also i want to be fitter and look healthier rather thank having extra wrinkles and yellowing skin, i also want to proove to people as well as myself that i am not a slave to those CANCER STICKS and that i can say NO MORE to them.
Reason four, To spend more time with my family and not keep nipping out for a quick ciggy, which i never needed anyhow.
Reason five, To be free from the restraints that smoking gives you, to be able to go out and not feel the need to light up, not feel like an outcast when im out just because i was the only one smoking, to be able to taste my food and enjoy it, not have to leave a room and go outside when i need my nicotine intake. To be fresher and happier.
These are my reasons for giving those nasty little blighters up.
