Should i quit??? Why???
I never thought about it much, mostly because i never ever thought i could.
I do value my life though.... took some measures to maybe live a few more years by eating better and maybe cut down on the smokes....
Took a lung cleanse and ddn't have the urge to smoke right away as usual. Decided to make a game of it, put my smokes across the room and held off.... joined a quit group... gained confindence and voila... a happy non-smoker in 4 days.... (3 pre and 4 post nicotine) I know it can be done, i did it.
Deciding to retire should be easy. Ok , i am not rich, nor do i expect to live differently, just securely and happy. It took me longer and more torment to decide finally to RETIRE without the quilt than to quit smoking!
Again, once a decision is made and accepted i can live happily with it. No regrets. I can look forward to it, knowing i deserve it. No quilt. I am not going to spend what i saved , simply live off the yield. Why do we fear being happy? Why do we feel we do not deserve it? These question do pertain to some quits. The fact is that you deserve it. Yes, we may have been fooled in the past. The real shame is in not doing anything to do something about it. We now have the resources and support to fight back.
My vow is to forever be grateful to have achieved my freedom from nicotine first... to help others to achieve it as well. To accept retirement as a reward for doing my best, and continuing to find ways to contribute to the betterment and success of others.
Every one looks to health, happiness and fulfillment...money does not buy happiness...... Cigarettes give you nothing..... Be good to yourselves and your loved ones.
