After so many years of loaded guilt , self destruction, fake happiness due to the smoking addiction, I am able almost 10 month guilt free, really happy that I have not smoked.
After months of hot and sweaty climate, finally it rained for a long time washing away all the negativity and leaving behind happy feelings and a fresh evening . Normally I would have smoked out of joy but now I enjoyed the fresh aroma coming out of the breeze ..
Those of you are feeling sad about smoking and trying to read all these blogs including mine, my key messages for you are
1.Stop worrying. Accept your smoking habit rather fighting with it . 2.Understand that you need to quit as it is not good for anything.
3. Set a date and quit ( Cold Turkey finally worked for me after many failed attempts of gradual decrease as it never came to zero)
4. You have to really stuggle for initial few weeks say 4-6 but than life will come back to normal gradually as your brain will be repgrammed during this period to live without nicotine
5 Embrace the journey . If you fail start again .
6 NOPE is the mantra- NOT ONE PUFF EVER . stick to it like your shield for few months and then it will become a part of your thoughtprocess. You never know when the weak moment of self confidence can destruct your hard work. I am staying off from a single smoke since close to 10 month now and still believe that I have to follow NOPE no matter what the occasion or mood is.
Finally, do come back to this forum to share you experience and help others in this journey of like minded people.
