Quitting Smoking is easy.
It is becoming a Non Smoker that is the hard part.
I have coached many people on how to quit smoking, and even was the valedictorian for my last X-Smokers cessation group. I have spent $1,000s on quitting sessions and many more $1,000s on the cigarettes themselves.
I have now smoked for 40 years! Ugh. That is horrible. I have spent close to $100,000 on cigarettes. Imagine what I could have done with that $100,000.
My health is surprisingly good, with few complaints that I think are not smoking related. But ... possibly are due to smoking.
My reasons for wanting to quit I am going to log & add to and set a date to quit.
I will not be giving anything up, but gaining my life back - released from addiction.
Reasons to Quit:
2) Want to live as long as possible
3) To achieve healthiest state possible
4) Because I stink!
Added Wednesday Sept 8th5) To live to at least 100 years old
6) To not be a social outcast
Thanks to those that commented on FB and by email directly supporting my quitting.
Especially to suggestions on how to make easier - CHAMPIX
and my sister's comment: When you share your projected quit date ... you will seriously be on your way. >> correct and I am not ready yet to share, but getting closer each day.
I will continue to add to this page as I go through the process to quit day.
