Quit Date: July 13, 2012
About me: In a very good place in my life and grateful for every day I wake up.
Why I quit: My dad died from lung cancer. I battled and battled with many failed attempts. Then my daughter told me I was going to be a grandmother for the first time. That was my sign. THIS child will NEVER know me as a smoker. She just turned 6
My advice: Smoking thoughts still come back even years later. They are brief but that little nagging bugger is still there. It is STILL stronger than me. But, I am way smarter than IT. The addiction doesn't have a brain, I do. Knowledge is power. That stupid idea that one puff will give me that "ahhhh" feeling it wants....well that's just an illusion. It doesn't exist now that I am a non smoker. I would cough...hate it...be disappointed that I did it...and swear to never take another puff. Only now...I woke up the little bugger...and he will show his nasty existence again even sooner this time...and stronger. and the nightmare begins again. NO THANKS!!!!
