Twins birthday

Posted in Quit experiences 20 Oct 2020

Hi guys, I proudly annouce that I passed 5th months smoke free life this weekend..

Well, this month was easier mainly due to reason that had gone to work after 1 year and time during working days flies faster.. I also got my first payment yesterday.. :) Nevertheless I'm not cured yet, yesterday I got quite serious craving related with high pressure in work.. I need to learn how to cope with it..

I'm glad that I celebrated mine's boy twins 2 years birthday.. I haven't found power to quit for them earlier, I needed to have much selfish reasons.. sad but true.. nevertheless, now I'm very happy that I don't smell for them.. and they are one of the main reasons why I still continue and want be better person.. I just can't imagine how to explain them that smoking is bad and unhealthy with ciggarete in my fingers..

I'm really glad that I'm better person.. on the other hand, without this phorum I wouldn't be able to resist so long..

One mega possitive and I would say another level of quiting is when you inspire others.. and I inspired my wife (non smoker) and she started trying to loose some weight.. She told me that if I can quit smoking, she will try to loose some weight..

And do not forget.. Children/people won't follow your advice, but your example.. Stay strong guys in your commitments..

    You have every right to be proud of yourself. And twins! Double the reason to stay a good example and to be around for years to come. Congrats to your wife as well for taking the initiative to do something for herself too. We can make these achievement once we apply ourselves and believe we can. It all takes time but is well worth the effort.

    As for the clwoe posts, She is not here wanting help but needs a platform for her anger and frustrations in life. I doubt she reads this as she is self absorbed. I hope newcomers understand why we choose to ignore her although her prior posts would explain it but were taken down by the administrator. (thank goodness)
