Posted in Staying quit 10 Nov 2021

Hi all. A story on here reminded me of why I wanted to quit, that was for my heart health but am many other reasons have come up. I suffered heart failure in 2018 but still I continued to smoke, even lying to doctors at the time. Nothing would stop me, such is the nicodemon. It’s heavy. Anyway it took until 7.3 weeks ago to finally get my headspace in the right place. I’m now just over 7 weeks quit and proud of it. It has been a big challenge because I tried for 18 years. That’s not normal I know but at least I’ve done it. 😀 My biggest challenge has been or one of the major ones to cigarettes. Such an addiction! I kept telling myself the flimsy excuse that I needed to smoke. I don’t. There are so many benefits to stopping I can’t list them all but if you quit everything will just fall into place over time. It does take time but if you really persevere you will get there. 😘🌟🐬🙏💖

    Cuba, your post was very fine. Truly it was! Sometimes I think if you are not asking for help, everyone thinks you are going good, so they don't reach out to comment. I believe you are doing well, you gave us all some insight on your life (heart failure and continued to smoke). All this "background" information can align to another reader. Keep up with posting, you are doing wonderful!! And so what if you don't get comments? Most all of us are reading!

    As a matter of fact,.. as of tonight,.. I am probably not going to give any more comments. I kinda offended someone, so I feel it's not worth getting riled up. In any event, I am behind you and look forward to your next post. YOU GOT THIS!!!!!
