Every story I have read has had a reason for quitting besides money but if I'm being brutally honest, its the only reason I am quitting.
My father smoked for 70 plus years and passed from lung cancer, emphysema and heart disease, and yet, nope, still smoked myself.
My kids asked me to quit, nope, still smoked.
New laws came into effect but they didn't affect me anyway as I always smoked away from the crowd and never ever in a car or the house.
Today is my 2nd day of quitting after smoking for 30 years and I have to admit that I miss it terribly, I really enjoyed smoking. Call me arrogant or whatever, but this is me being honest. Yes it stunk (and to me that was the only problem I had with it) but they are just too expensive now.
Had my first night last night of not sleeping and weird stomach pains and then today no energy what so ever.
I am determined to keep going, and yes I do see the health benefits down the track, but to start me off I just needed to be brutally honest with myself and everyone else.
Any tips or ideas of what is coming next would be greatly received and good luck to everyone doing the same.
