I had my last smoke at 10:45 this morning during my tea break. Stopping smoking this time was unplanned (its been at the back of my mind for the last two weeks, but I kept procrastinating on the exact day) So today I just stopped - enough is enough . Usually I smoke about 20 a day... I've been smoking since I was 18 and this year I'm turning 26.
I've been wanting to quit for ages. This is my second attempt - last year I managed to not smoke for 10 days, but then I gave in...sort of lost motivation and had no energy left to convince myself not to smoke - after being so positive in the first few days
Stopping smoking the first time made me feel quite depressed... it was like something I loved had died and was never coming back and those little smoke breaks in my day when I "rewarded" myself had been taken away.
This time I hope I can do it. I hate everything about smoking. I'm going to try my hardest to not light up, taking it each day at a time. I already smell better :-). Today after work I'm going to do some kickboxing, and punch the cravings out of my body. Then I'm going to have a nice, long soak in the bath and have a delicious, healthy dinner. Tomorrow morning will be tough. But I'm going to try to get through it.
So this is my stop smoking declaration to all of you who understand.
