The day is finally here, today I have quit smoking for 1 whole year and I feel absolutely brilliant.
It is so good to feel so free, I hated having to plan my whole life around smoking and always thinking about when I would get my next fix. It’s quite strange, but in a way I feel like today is the end of a chapter in my life. It feels like I can finally close the book on smoking for good.
I’m not going to lie, stopping smoking was very hard at the start, but over time it does get easier and easier until one day something just ‘clicks’. I spent some time researching smoking, especially the addiction, which enabled me to get my head in the right place and be able to understand all the mind games. Once you can find that positive mental attitude, things become a lot easier.
So what has changed for me over the course of 1 year? I have gone from a smoking, bad diet, constantly tired person who got little-to-no exercise to a non-smoking, healthy(ish) eater who goes running 3 times a week and I couldn’t be happier.
To all that helped and supported me, I thank you. To all that are just beginning the journey to freedom, stay strong, get that positive mental attitude and never back down.
