My reasons to quit nic

I've had Nic with me since I was 16 ! I'm now 52 coming up 53..thats most of my life this menace has been around and I can honestly say I am fed up with the control nic has . I've tried 3 times before ,my longest was 9 months. I can only think of 1 reason to smoke,to stop nic nagging ! that's it ! BUT I can think of many reasons to quit and its these I'm going to keep looking at ...

I want to stop worrying I'll get some lethal disease

I want to get better at cycling longer distances

I want to have money left over each month

I want to smell better

I want to taste my food better

I want to feel bright and alive

I want to set a good example to my grandson

I want to feel strong in control of what I put in my body

I want to be proud of myself

I want to smell the roses

I want to be really relaxed like I was at 15

I want a life without nic in it

and I'm sure I have more :)

You have a fantastic list of reasons to quit there. It might help to display them somewhere prominent so you can refer to the list when a bad moment hits you.

You've come to the right place for support- everyone here is lovely- and we're all in the same boat. Keep posting and let us know how things are going.
