Multiple Quit Attempts

Posted in Hints and tips 22 Aug 2019

Hi All,

You know multiple quit attempts is a positive......if you keep trying it means you are serious about the quit journey. It would be so easy to try and fail and never try again. But everyone who keeps trying knows in their heart and mind that this is something they really want to achieve.....and with every try you will get closer to achieving your goal. I can’t count the quit attempts I have had...a lot....and somehow the time was right, everything aligned and I am now over 12 months quit after nearly 50 years of being a slave. Why was this quit different....I don’t know....but for some reason this was my time....and you will have yours, just keep trying. Have faith in yourself and the belief that you can achieve

    I'd like a couple of things. Would like to get six months up. Also I would like to make a garment for myself. I am making a lace sweater. These thing come to mind for me when you say you have been quit for over a year.

    Congratulations Robyn. Great advice as always, and of course someone who tries multiple times has to be taken seriously. As you pointed out, things align, like our will, information, support and time . Any time is a good time of course , but hopefully one without undo stress or pressure. The best thing is to pick a quit date and believe that you can finally make it your last quit .

    Kudos to a wonderful smoke free year of better health and freedom . Cheers to your journey of becoming a happy non-smokers. You are truly an inspiration and a voice of reason and encouragement to others.
