Back from a lovely holiday and doing what I love to do…. Fishing and spending time with my grandchildren…We Fished…Snorkelled…Boogie boarded….Body surfed and just enjoyed the leisure time.. Lovely weather with winter approaching with nice cool 30ᵒ C days…
The best was that I could paddle between 10 and 15 km per trip.. Launching at Sunrise and beaching at 10h00 to enjoy the rest of the day with wife and children.
This smoke free life is the way to live… doing all these things , playing and running on the beach and breathe with ease is soooooo nice …
The message I want to carry over is that it is really worth quitting…. I see so many newbies suffering and questioning whether it is worth it…be assured I also suffered almost 2 years ago..I cried.. I ranted…I was confused… I had no energy… I lost my mojo and sparkle.. BUT oh boy the moment I saw that light at the end of the tunnel and it wasn’t a train coming, I rediscovered life..the way it should be..!! I escaped the 38 years of entrapment and slavery….!!
I survived serious stressful times… Son in motorbike accident…Digging day and night to reach water….Serious drought deputising the farming… Retrenchment of loyal workers..etc..etc but never for one moment I thought that a cigarette will make it go away because it does not.. It is a false euphoria… Smoking is a smoke screen… See Angry Bears post and I agree 100% …!!!!!
Thank you for all the good advice I received from the people before me and hopefully I could help some people on this wonderful smoke free journey… The best advice I could ad is to know thy enemy and except that it is a very fierce and strong enemy but the moment you fight it with all you have it fades and run away but will never be gone and just go into hiding to attack you on your weakest moment… It is a very sly enemy…!!!!!
Don’t Defend…..Attack !!….Stay smoke free and stay strong…!!! NOPE !!
