Believing 1 smoke wont hurt

Posted in Staying quit 17 May 2019

Started stealing smokes from my parents at the age of 11 and smoking a pack a day since the age of 17 I'm now 57 years old.

I have given up 18 times over that 40 year period but always made the mistake of believing that 1 ciggie wont hurt after giving up for various periods of time. BIG MISTAKE.

I have been smoke free now for 1 year and 2 months knowing very well that it will only take 1 cigarette to get back into spending thousands for bad breath and numerous other health issues.

The tobacco curse is very strong it only takes 1 cigarette to draw you back, be mindful and stay well clear of that 1 ciggie. it will destroy you.

Good luck on your journey and smell the roses for the first time.

    Tempting fate is not a great idea. Sorry you had to learn the hard way Tandem Master, but hopefully others will heed your warnings. The NOPE mantra is well known and advised for a very good reason. Continued success with your quit . and thanks for sharing.
