Join a supportive community that can help you quit for good!
Hi y'all! I just wanted to check in and thank everyone on this site who helped me and encouraged me in my struggle to finally be free. It's 92 days of freedom from cigarettes. I still have that pack of smokes in my kitchen drawer that I mostly forget about. I do want to confess that early in my quit process, I was smoking a lot of marijuana to help me quit. I don't recommend going this route because I eventually developed an addiction to weed but now I've been completely sober for the the past 42 days. I joined a 12 step fellowship which has been super just like the people on this website. Thank you so much for your stories, experiences, insights and words of encouragement. I could not have done it alone. What I learned in my fellowship program is that addiction is a brain disease so don't blame yourself for failing and relapsing so many times. Give yourself a break by loving yourself and reaching out to others fo r help and support. Love is the only drug that also gives you that dopamine hit you've been seeking with nicotine. Also, make quitting fun by learning about it. Learning new things also so gives you the hit of dopamine. I hope my story helps someone else as I have been helped from other's stories. Keep on shining your light no matter what, never stop trying to beat this serious addiction. You're so worth it!! I'll keep coming back to read other people's stories and to light the way for those who may be struggling. I've quit so many times and relapsed so many times I seriously lost count just start where you are right now forgive yourself, love yourself one day at a time.
