Skipping lunch with friends just so I could smoke
Smelling bad
Bad breath
Toting around body spray and mints
Dealing with the smoking mess...ashes etc
Wasting money
Making time to waste money
Leaving early for work to get more smokes in before work
Worrying all the time about next smoke
Feeling icky!
Feeling breathless...it's better already!
HIDING MY ADDICTION!
Missing out on so much to have smoke time
Worrying about how my car smelled to others no matter what I did
Worrying so much about my health...still will...but not making it worse
Feeling bad I was harming my cat n dog
Endless list
But my WHAT I LOVE AS A NON SMOKER IS LONGER!!

Filthy overflowing ashtrays.

 

Rattling lungs

 

Spending large amounts of money that I don't have

 

Being an outcast in public

 

Knowing full well what I was doing to myself and not caring.

It's unbelievable to me how much time was consumed thinking about & planning smoking related stuff. I never realized that while I was a smoker but I sure do now. It's also taking a long time for my brain to adjust to the "new me". I still find smoking related thoughts popping into my mind quite often. Not a desire to smoke but more of a thought about, do I need a pack of smokes, when I'm near a place I used to buy them at. That kind of thing is still pretty fresh in my mind. I do really look forward now to social gatherings where I can actually participate fully now as as non smoker. No more sneaking away for a smoke every once in a while. And traveling, whether by car or by air, is a real pleasure now. No more worrying about "getting my next Fix"!

My time in this world is limited but what I can do with that time is not.

This is my one & only quit attempt. If I relapse, I will die a smoker!

Yeah, Reciprocity, it's been ingrained for so many years. It will take some time to get to the new normal. I'm a long way from that.

 

But I'm getting there.

I didn,t know what it would feel like to be a adult and not smoke..
I had to train myself to do all tasks ,and live day to day without my little fix
I love my smoke free life..I'm free...after being enslaved for 52 years.....
