Some people can't understand why giving up smoking is not easy for us. They think its a matter of just not smoking. If that was the case, then why would we need blogs like this? Why do we need compassion and understanding from other ex-smokers? There is so much falsehood and lack of understanding in the world but all we need is for someone to understand us, especially if they've been through something similar. As for me, I'm the kind of person who responds better to people who care.
Some people will look at heavy smokers thinking that they have no will power. That might be true in a sense but think about whats going to happen to a heavily addicted smoker who quits and finds his will power again. Its going to be awesome! The same person who stopped smoking is going to find he can also begin to control other things in his life. When I was a heavy smoker, I got so used to functioning like a person in a nightmare. That's how I see it now. I am amazed that I could even doing anything with the suffocation and poisoning I made myself go through every day.
This whole escapade is not just about quitting nicotine but for many of us including myself it is part of discovery.
If we've given up smoking for a little while and are craving nicotine we can think about staying quit to be able to find out how much better its going to get. Of course its going to get better!!
