My 3 month old son keeps me going

Posted in Staying quit 07 Oct 2018

So i made it a week.

Then relapsed,

When i realised the pack i bought was gone in less than 40 hours, the guilt and shame really kicked in.

To think of the damage i must be doing to my body and health made me sick.

But my son reminded me with the innocence of a baby, what life is really all about. Having fun and being happy.

Cigarettes to not make me happy and all that coughing is not fun.

I am now 48 hours smoke free again.

And i am back on track and determined to stay quit.

For my son, so i can live longer and watch him grow up.

My mother passed away from cancer when i was 13, she smoked too.

I wanted to be just like her.

Now i see, that i do not want my son to loose his mother like i lost mine.

So i have to quit for good.

There is just no excuse.

    Don't worry about the relapse just pick yourself up ( I think you already have ) and carry on .
    It's great that you have your baby as an incentive.
    Keep us informed 😘
