I couldn’t decide whether or not I should post this in day 1, or general. Hmmmm, back again and so good to see so many success stories this spring.
Well when I originally quit back on 1/1/13, my good friend and office cellmate Steph, the BF, and one other acquaintance all decided we were in it together going to give up the smokes and be happily on our way….. NOT !!
Steph caved first (I knew she would and should have laid down my bet, damn!), followed by the acquaintance (we’ll call him Victor), then horrors, I was next (arghhh!!) and then the last soldier, the BF succumbed to the demon weed. Of course I took one for the team at home with the BF, of course it was my fault because I started smoking again so he did, yah right!!! Ok, I took the blame lol and promised to “start over” Well long story short and six months later two have given up on quitting smoking. The BF has remained smoke free after the first glitch!! And then there’s me….. I have started and stopped so many times in the last six months that I have lost count. (I think it has been 4) and as I was telling a good friend here this morning, I know my credibility is absolutely zero here at this point.
Nevertheless, as my friend Nifty still tells me “at least I haven’t given up” this said, I have had real mixed feelings about posting anything further here due to the credibility factor but then again I still believe there is something to be learned from each posters personal experiences along their journey to a smoke free life.
So am I technically on day one or am I somewhere between there and six months? I will let you all decide. I am not sure it really matters anyway…..
Since I can only live one day at a time…I am only counting this day, and today I am a non-smoker !!!
Best wishes to everyone and happy to be here yet again.
