I never thought I would become a smoker, but I did. I started 9 years ago and I've tried to quit so many times. I just hope I can stick to it this time. This time I have more reasons, this time I'm doing it for me, not because someone told me to.
I'm quitting because I want to start a family soon, and I don't want to go into parenthood still smoking.
I'm quitting because I'm so sick of waking up every night coughing so hard, unable to breathe, phlegm shooting out of my mouth... Gross!
I'm quitting because it's expensive, and it's a ware of money.
I'm quitting because I've seen my dad struggle with cancer (not smoking related, but still scary).
I'm quitting because the love of my life is scared smoking will kill me, just like it did to his father, and I don't want to hurt him like that. It is just not fair.
And finally, I'm quitting for me. I was 12 when I started. I don't remember a life where I didn't want a cigarette every day. I want to wake up and be free to do anything I want, without having to go outside and have a cigarette before my brain will let me do anything else.
So now is day 01.
