In the past I have quit to satisfy someone else and because smoking was detrimental to my health. However I found out that when I quit for any reason other than I no longer want to smoke, the struggle to smoke looms powerful. I have almost 90 smoke free days and find it important to reflect on how far I’ve come.
I feel free from my smoking past today, and it’s good to recount the advantages of not smoking. My health is improving. I have more energy and lung capacity. My living space is cleaner at home and in my car. I have more money. I’m no longer self-conscious about finding a place to smoke in public. Best of all, taking back my power rather than letting tobacco continue to rule my life has enhanced my self-worth immensely.
I really don’t want to smoke again, and I know I’m free today.
