Fear of quitting

Posted in Hints and tips 05 Jan 2019

Nicotine dependency recovery can be our greatest personal awakening ever. Imagine destroying needless quitting fears by understanding them, and thus being able to better notice and savor the beauty about to unfold before you.

No longer afraid, imagine noticing your breathing improve and the richness sensed by rapidly healing taste-buds. Imagine discovering that white flour and rain drops have smell, while moving into a clean ash-free world where the oil on your skin isn't tar's but yours. Imagine the return of self respect, of being home and residing here on Easy Street with hundreds of millions of comfortable ex-users, of knowing it's a keeper, and never having to quit again.

    I never much thought about that weewillem. I never ever thought i could quit, let alone want to think about something i could never have. Once i believed in myself and joined a quit site, i saw that other die hard smokers had been able to quit too . It gave me hope , and the incentive to try. I fell into it by mistake, the others who think and join are much braver than I. But i did join, and quit early once i understood the 4 D's. There wasn't much chatter about mindset on the other one. Willpower and Nrt's. I was lucky to have had the intuition to see me through so easily. I Wanted to quit and I Believed that i could this time. This forum is amazing. Not only is the set up much better, but the people are willing to engage and encourage. Again congrats to you weewillem. So happy for you!

    I read it again and felt it this time weewilliam. Our journey is an awakening to our senses and contentment. We have shed our fears of the unknown and the fear of bondage.
    May we all attain this lasting state of peace and tranquility.
