I was just thinking about how I felt when I first started my quit journey. I would read the stories on here and think...I will never be able to do what these people have done. And they make it sound so damn easy....don’t they struggle some days? They are so positive and keep going on about how easy it can be. I have had more quit attempts than hot dinners and none of them were easy...until this one! I changed my thinking completely...I really wanted this to be my last quit...so I really thought about my addiction. I started to hate the smokes for all that they had cost me, time, money, self esteem, slavery to the habit. There was not one positive that I could come up with for smoking....and my hatred grew. Instead of feeling deprived as I always had before...I felt relief to be free of the smoking trap and I can honestly say after smoking for 48 years, I do not miss them at all and I have never felt better. Now when I see others smoking, which is becoming less and less, I feel sorry for them because they are still in the trap. So if you are new on this site or early on in your quit....it really can be easy...it is in you to make it so!
