The sad thing is I have been quitting smoking & relapsing for a good year & a half. Shame on me! So much wasted time & energy. And I absolutely despise when others waste my time & energy, but me...ehn apparently I let it slide. I have to start holding myself accountable with smoking as I do everything else in my life.
I do not yet know where the fear comes from (other than the addiction itsel...
Part of my failure to launch stems from my irrational fears surrounding my ridiculous expectations of quitting. So by not taking action, I am actually choosing to stay in this cycle of self imposed torment. What fun! LOL. I am absolutely awful at tearing my self down when I am fighting with myself. And I am a very mean fighter. Thanks to some very kind members on this forum I have not been doing ...

So many newcomers lately. Some read the posts and are excited by the mindset they are learning. They are off to a great start, and i am sure they will succeed. However, many put in an appeara...
Deciding to quit smoking because of the cost is not a good enough reason alone. We have all deprived ourselves of better things in life while choosing to smoke. Maybe you couldn't afford to buy a house. That is a great security and investment if you missed out.
Some maybe don't eat as well as they should. Others can' t enroll their kids in hockey. Family vacations are out of question. How muc...
I do apologise for asking this question in this area, I understand it's unorthodox, but I just haven't been able to find out where I go to respond to comments left by other members. Would someone be kind enough to help me/ tell me how I can respond to comments left for me please?
