Getting ready to Quit

Posted in Reasons to quit 01 Feb 2020

My quit date is Monday 3rd Febuary 2020...My reasons to Quit are: I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 5 yrs ago, and I want to keep my circulation good, I don't want any parts amputated...also to make exercise easier ,to breath better, not to have to worry about not having money for my habit ..To afford other things in life cos let's face it, it takes a lot of money to smoke there's days...I know it's going to be very hard as I really enjoy smoking, but see how I go..Good luck to all of you

    why not read Allen Carr and understand why you only think that you enjoy smoking. Learning the truth about nicotine is a real turn off which will help in any quit and make your other motives even stronger. The proper mindset can make it all easier and lasting.

    Hi Charlee. Welcome.
    Do you really enjoy smoking.. ??? What do you enjoy about It? Please follow the advice of Happiness and read the Allen Carr book. It made a huge difference to me.

    Hi Charlee. You dont really enjoy smoking. You just tell yourself that you do because its an excuse to keep smoking. Once you admit the truth to yourself it will become easier to quit. You have to have the right mindset. You dont need luck. You need determination. In your post, you have already listed some reasons for quitting. Add to that list, read it every day. Smoking is not your best mate. Kick em to the curb. You can do it 👍💕
