No. 1 Cheerleader for my daughter

Posted in Staying quit 18 Sep 2021

So I managed to encourage my daughter to quit smoking. Day 6 today for her cold turkey, she had a cold and was left with a cough she was struggling to shake, so I convinced her to quit. She struggled last night and said she found yesterday so hard, she wanted to drive to get a packet, I talked her out of it despite my husbsnd offering her 1 of his🙄 I told her its only a craving and convinced her to have a bath and take slow deep breaths. She told me she feels super stressed, I explained so many things to her that my quit fam taught me. I keep encouraging her and telling her how proud I am that she's choosing to be a winner!!!!!😊 Look out hubby, the winners feeling may just get infectious🤞

    Wow Leeann,
    That is awesome for your daughter to have you encouraging her and giving lot’s of helpful advice.
    You are a great mum and clearly a great role model.
    Hoping she gets over the ‘yuckies’ and starts to feel the benefits of quitting real soon.

    It is contagious! Do you not hear the wistfulness in smokers? How they only wished that they too could quit?
    Send our congratulations to your daughter and an invite to follow, if not join us. Congratulations on making yet another believer.
    A genuine WANT and BELIEF go a long way.

    Awesome Leeann, yep let’s hope it
    It is so hard to explain to others just how fantastic quitting is. We get so stuck in a rut and change is scary.
    But how wonderful it is to break worth a few uncomfortable days.
