NOPE~Never/Ever/Forever

Some quitters may have trouble with the never/ever part of  NOPE (Not One Puff Ever).

 

To tell you the truth,  in the nascence of my quit, I  bluffed my way through never/ever land.
I remember Cristobal and Stuart qualifying never/ever with the caveat,  'just for today'
and that was the truth too, it is just about here and now.

 

As days and weeks passed,  I absorbed the truth about addiction.
Once I clearly understood addiction is forever 
and the brain's neuro pathways immediately re-connect  to addiction after one puff,
I embraced never/ever/forever.

 

If addiction was in my brain for the long haul,

well dammit...I was too
and I was going to Win !

bump for @HeatherDianne.  Use NOPE for one nano-second at a time, one crave at a time.

Carve it into your consciousness.  

Everything will become easier, please believe us.  We do not lie.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
