For those that come here for some guidance for a quit that you do not really want but is necessary to live a full life, we commensurate. Many of us have for sure been there or have faced with a future reality that it will become necessary one day. A real choice. Live or die. It does not make the journey easier. The choice is no longer yours and you feel out of control. Personally, i love having control. I also realize i only have control of my own life, and have to make the best of what my options are.
I chose to bury my head in the sand, keep on drinking and smoking too much so as to cause breathlessness. My doctor offered a puffer which i refused. If i did not want to change what brought it on, then in my mind, i deserved the discomfort. And so i changed the habit, learned and avoided.
Smoking in general is the same thing. It really is a cause of most your health and mental problems, not a solution to. Once you realize that you and only you can make the real difference, you have been given back the chance to make the changes necessary to you to make a real difference in your life. I did. You can. Believe in you and your strength. Find reasons to continue the right path!
