Tomorrow I will be:
0 years…..3 months…..3 weeks……3 Days……3 hours….3 seconds
Taking the count from the tiniest to the bigger I thought that that 3 seconds it took to make the decision to quit might be the biggest of all and for me the best one I have ever made in my life.
Taken into consideration that I smoked 40 per day and not to have one in 3 hours was a super accomplishment. I will never forget that constant reaching to my top pocket where my cigarettes were for 38 years !!!
The Magic day 3…All the Carbon monoxide is removed, all the nicotine is removed and you are supposed to feel good and you are now smoke free…. Ouch…what a surprise was installed for me….
For the next 3 weeks I walked around like a de-tuned radio, constantly looking for the correct station and became horrified and thought it was permanent. I lost everything, my good ciggy friend and lifelong companion, my sparkle, my Mojo, my Zest for life, everything, I was on the waste dump… I got some wonderful guidance and decided to supplement Herbal.
Up to month 3 I adopted an attitude of….Don’t Defend…Attack! and started to enjoy the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs and rediscovered life. It was amazing to find what I was missing for so long and the best of all is that it was there all the time….I just couldn’t see or recognize it because it was hidden behind a cloud of dirty poisonous cigarette smoke.. !!! I rediscovered Smell…Taste….Breathing !!!!!
I am so eager to get to 3 years and wished for a fast forward button so many times but settled to take it day by day and enjoy every moment….
In the 3 weeks after month 3 I have learned that life is precious and start to live it accordingly and drink in the beauty of nature. Over the last 3 days I was fixing and cleaning, for 3 hours I was searching the Internet for more answers and it took me 3 seconds once again to remember that this circle of life will continue for the rest of my smoke free live......
