For all you newest non-smokers, it's middle of the week, almost middle of the month and if you carry on saying no to those cravings you'll be middle way through your first year of being smokefree and much healthier Carry on saying 'middle' over and over again and it sounds such a crazy stupid word... almost as stupid and crazy as smoking is! ;-/
I remember Mad writing up something a while ago, it went something like;
Fire at one end, a fool at the other... tobacco in-between
How do you see cigarettes? A friend, the enemy, a crutch, a need, a want?
Basically they are a small white stick, filled with over 4,000 toxins - at least 60 of them carcinogenic (cancer causing), with nicotine being the ultimate drug that you seek from them. It was probably curiosity that 'encouraged'or 'pulled; you into first trying them and then addiction that kept you going back to them.
Think about and focus on the negatives of smoking and remember these when the cravings set in as to why you don't want to be a slave to the white stick any more.
Think about all your reason for wanting to give up smoking and don't let your reasons become your excuses to continue or to go back.
Remembering to stay positive as much as you can and you will get through this.
Nobody said it would be easy, but everyone said that it is worth it
You can and will do this
Right, the kettle is on if anybody fancies a cuppa
