Your relationship with smoking is a dysfunctional one. You might think that cigarettes supported you through thick and thin. But really, they just robbed you of your health and well-being. They took your breath away, made you and your clothes smell bad, and often turned you into a social pariah. Their chemicals gave you a false sense of well-being, as they stealthily attacked every healthy part of your body. Seems to me that this is one relationship you would want to ditch.
I quit cold turkey 2.7 years ago after having smoked for 43 years. It just goes to show you that it is never too late to quit, and that you really can quit if you put your mind to it. Take a look at the suggestions on this website as to how to go about quitting. It may sound stupid, but I truly had no idea how to go about it, and this site made all the difference in the world. I learned strategies to use when dealing with cravings, how to handle difficult situations, and how to keep myself motivated. And I practically lived on these community forums, because the people here are amazing. We all share the same goals. We want to become non-smokers, and we want to stay that way. And we support one another through that process.
Give quitting a shot, justfortoday. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Trust me, I am grateful every day that I was able to break free when I did, and you will feel the same way. Find yourself a healthier relationship. You are worth it.
