Can't believe another month has ticked by.
Folks it gets easier , There are occasional waves of desire and need, but these pass very quickly.
These craving weaken as the date when I last put a white stick in my mouth and lit it get further and further away.
"Do I want just one more to see, one more wont hurt will it". Well no.
For a start Id have to start all over again but do I want a chesty cough, a sickly taste in my mouth, having to stand outside in all weathers, worrying when I get down to 2 at 11.00pm , feeling the guilt of what its doing to me, constantly thinking of opportunities of when and where to smoke.
I feel so much better and to top it off, I haven't given a tobacco company £1000 of my money. Yes £1000!!
I have been ill, a worrying cough, bleeding gums, stomach aches, becoming paranoid of my health etc etc. The funny thing is we ex smokers didn't really think of our health while we were smoking! Think of the number of times you felt unwell and forced yourself to have one.
We can all do this, we are all or can become non smokers. There is no need to let a little white stick that just keeps you topped up to rule your life an enslave you. Stop.
If you fail, try again and again. The more times you try the more likely you are to succeed in the end and those little breaks will help your body anyway.
Big love to all the team and Administrators. Part of the process has been coming on here and writing and helping others.
