OK so, I really don’t post much anymore, do I? Betsy’s post about “feelings” has inspired me, tho. She’s right, we should talk about our feelings, just to let people know they are not alone and that everyone here understands that this journey is a process. It’s a journey filled with many emotions . . . fear turning into confidence; anger becoming acceptance that this is what you must do, and finally, knowledge that you are stronger than the addiction.
Next month I will hit my 1 Year Mark, but I remember when I was 2 Years quit. 2 YEARS!! It was not a good time in my life, and I was foolish enough to let Nico in. Oh yes, He just walked right in and made Himself comfortable. There I was, happy to see Him and to have Him close again and whispering in my ear. LIES! It was all lies, and I can tell you I won’t fall victim to them again.
Betsy has also said many times that quitting is simple but it isn’t easy, and believe me, it’s not easy. This is one of the hardest habits I have overcome. To be perfectly frank, I live everyday knowing that I am just one cigarette away from a pack and then a carton. I know that, and by knowing that, I stay smoke free. Also, my attitude about cigarettes is that they are a nasty, poisonous habit that will eventually kill me . . . so my choice is to live.
Today, I choose not to smoke
Yesterday, I chose to be a slave to a disgusting, filthy, self- destructive addiction.
Today, I choose freedom!
Yesterday, I chose death
Today, I choose life
Hi Jan...Congratulations on 11 months of Freedom...!
I am so happy that Betsy sent this off to "Viewer's Choice"...it is a wonderful post...Truthfully, I live with the same thing..."One Cigarette away from a pack".... it is scary, but the truth...and along this journey I had to face alot of truths, like others....
Have a beautiful Friday....!
