I guess this post is aimed more towards new quitters or those who are thinking of quitting in the near future.
If you have already quit recently, great! If you're thinking of quitting, do it!
Please feel free to search back at old posts of mine from a few weeks back and at the very beginning of my quit. I want you to see how hard I made this on myself and I hope you can compare it to how you see me now.
POSITIVE THINKING WORKS. Fact. I made my own life hell for a while, convinced myself that this wasn't for me, was picked up off the floor on numerous occasions by the amazing people on here, and finally I just became happy.
I don't want you to think that your quit will be the same. That you'll make yourself miserable for a few weeks, then reach a place where you just feel better one day. Your quit can be easy from day one. You just need to have pride in your achievement and know that this is your choice. Remember why you are choosing to escape from prison and remind yourself of the good you are doing to your mind and body
Just over two months in, I feel great. Maybe I'll still have some tough times ahead (my first summer as a non-smoker, my first meal out as a non-smoker), but, on the other hand, maybe I'll just soar through it and wonder how I ever found it so difficult to free myself!
My breath smells great, I tackle situations every day that I couldn't have managed without a smoke, I have more money, I feel a sense of pride and I am genuinly happy. Just as happy as every other non-smoker and probably a whole lot happier than most (if not all) smokers.
This is how I'm feeling after a measly 8 weeks. Why did I make this so hard on myself??? :confused::rolleyes:
