This is a milestone I was not sure I would reach. As of today, 1-25-18, I have gone one full year without a cigarette. It was not an easy journey, that’s for sure! Cold turkey after decades of smoking seemed like a crazy idea, but also the only real way for me. If you or someone you know is trying to quit, let this be an example that it can be done. If at first you don’t succeed…..
There are so many advantages to quitting. You don’t have to stand outside in the cold. You save A LOT of money. Things you could not afford before are all of the sudden in reach. You don’t have to do laundry as often. Most importantly, you will notice better breathing within a few days or weeks at the most. Will you be irritable at times? Yes, you will. Give a heads up to those you spend the most time with. Chances are they will support you in your effort.
If my success inspires one person, then going through this and sharing the experience will be worth it. It may go against the grain of everything you were ever told, but quitters can be winners!
