It is possible to survive crazy without a cigarette!

Posted in Quit experiences 16 Aug 2018

Let me tell you something, folks, next Wednesday is my 2 year quit anniversary. If I can stay quit with all of the stuff that I’ve been through in these past two years you can too. In the past two years, I have been diagnosed with lupus, have lived with depression and anxiety every day of my life, have faced cognitive difficulties due to a minor stroke, have had family members up in my face every second of the day, and just recently, I reported a case of abuse against a kid and the parents went after me for making a report. Then, many of my friends turned their backs on me. And guess what? NO cigarettes. Wanna know why? After about a month, cigarettes no longer are the answers and when the few cravings come you just ignore them and they go away. I have come to realize that my problems aren’t going to go away just because I shell out an outragous amount of money to blow it up into smoke, literally! So, newbies, hang in there - i promise that if you decide to never smoke again, you will do this.
