Serial quitter

Posted in Reasons to quit 08 Jun 2016

So many reasons to quit :

So much to live for

Eben after one day , that incessant cough has abated

My teeth are looking cleaner already

Hate having the smokey smell

Am wealthier already

Already have less asthma

    Well done Weewillem,
    Take each day as it comes and each day becomes a little easier.
    There is so many positives about not smoking.
    Great to read feedbacks.

    Good affirmations... come back and read them from time to time if you feel a weakening moment. I have an A4 sheet of paper just above my computer screen on the wall with reminders such as... Remember the gagging morning cough... remember how hard it was to breathe... remember when the cough got so bad it felt like your head was going to explode or you'd have a heart attack... it's just not worth it. I have another one on the side of the fridge that I can see as I walk down the hallway towards the back door where I would normally go out to have a smoke. It say's in upper case bold lettering... DON'T DO IT... YOU WILL REGRET IT. So it's like a second line of defence. Both have helped me change my mind several times.

    Well done Weewillem, stay strong and positive. The first few days are the hardest, so just aim for that and then run around and punch the air, grinning like a Cheshire Cat. One hour at a time, then one day. Keep busy and have some sugar free gum on hand. We are with you

    Welcome back Weewillem, they say each attempt is one step closer to success. I don't know if I would have your strength, unfortunately I think I would have given up or giving up. So congratulations and I wish you all the best on this journey
