Just thought to do a lil post, if anyone would like to listen.
Well, i am quite old on this forum, and perhaps quite old too!:eek: ....I dont give much to the forum anymore as I have moved.... further on then i could have thought of or dreamed of! its not because I think hanging out with people you cant touch, feel or hear (or smell lol) isnt a good thing! it is the best thing! its just I have now found me!(and no ive not joined a cult and ran away:p)
"Me" being The person who can actually life her life without smoking, and I like it ........ Quitting smoking is one of the most wonderful things you may ever give yourself... EVER I mean it!
Im here because i wanted to record the fact that i havent smoked for 18months & a couple of weeks! and I am excited to share this because I was the person who failed many many many many many times. Ask anyone.. The person who couldnt get past the fact my life could ever be quite the same without smoking! ...what I didnt understand was that I had to wait and see!......WAIT! BE PATIENT! AND SEE! .....what you feel at the beginning isnt quite the same feelings that come in time!. It isnt all perfect no! ive put weight on about a stone in all! give or take a few xtra christmas pounds! ..... At times of stress & upset, and worry...the thought to smoke comes..sometimes quite strongly! but goes just as quickly - and for now it isnt something I think I have a choice anymore! Yes the choice as gone. I think "NO Thanks, not for me anymore" Which is a revelation! I am free.
Hoping to inspire anyone who maybe having a sh*t day....... and thinking huhu im bound to smoke! and perhaps even you do! These are the people i care about, im not saying its easy for anyone! but i think that some people struggle more then others to make it happen for them! it isnt about who is the strongest or the bravest! not with this one. Its just about keeping on going, keeping on trying! .....whatever it takes! you will get to the top! everyone will in the end! .... Just wait! it gets easier & easier. You dont have to change your life.... You just need to change your outlook! thats all.
Good luck everyone too wherever you may be in your quit........ be good & happy easter
