As we all know quit or recovery is not an easy course and program, especially when its an everyday habit and addiction that we are dealing with, as we all know we struggle or the road isn't easy, in my situation it was not easy at all as i had to be a lot stronger than usual as i suffer a condition under mental health, to top it off i had no easy access to a smoke free environment as my space is the hangout, which would usually cause a relapse, the strongest support chain came from reading everyone else's experiences and recovery stories gaining an insight on how the production works eventually i did lag returning to quit as i thought little of who i am, as things felt unwelcoming, since then i realize stigma and its orientation in my life, by then i realize it was all myself, anyway as i look back on my history i realized a few strengths came from being a part of the show (quit line blog) as well as demand from my mother, which was the biggest guide let alone help i obsessed in, which help me gain a better understanding of who i am and what i want for the better, as it just got sickening, as i had to learn smoking cessation as well just to give me a better view on the what i am dealing with cause the habit was vicious, so to all my guides thanks so much for your support as it has done me wonders over some time now as i usually reflect on my own blogs and of coarse your comments made a lot of difference in life, and thanks so much to the blog community. with it came a superb outcome a natural glow something that stands out about myself.

wow i feel old as i look into my progress, it goes to show anything is possible with management i suppose the experience of quiting is extrodinary especially when you look back on your progress and notice your achievement and not your failure, i found changing the way i think quiet useful as i was a very heavy smoker so it was a huge challenge for me outstanding though ive done great over this time in life, but though changing the way you think also should come with changing the things you do i found boredom was a huge challenge for me as i dont know very many people, it also was a challenge having nowhere smokefree in the house as im a boarder so that was a tough challenge but i managed as i must be more grown up then the average i suppose you also have to prioritise when you take on a huge challenge, but no matter what it is a possibility and things happen but if your the grown up nothing can let you down, i am what i am cause i made me who i am, no-one is boss of me i am boss of everything thats mine. take care and all the best for all yous trying and congratulations on your first day into the quit game.
Just had my last celebration smoke , listened to Leona Lewis - Better with time , enjoyed that last puff and then thru my lighter into the ocean (I know not good for the earth, I am sorry I'm usually good). 🙏🙌 Here is to the end of a habit .
I’m just here to help everyone who’s trying to quit and finding it difficult.
I spent years hopelessly trying, cutting down, patches lozenges etc to no avail. Until 2 months ago I read Allen Carrs easy way to stop smoking. I was recommended it by a NZ doctor and it has changed my life!!! If you’re sceptical, just try it! I didn’t believe a book can help but it has and it was SO EASY!
If you can’t afford to buy just go to your library. Most have it, I wish I could let every smoker know how easy it becomes to become free!!
Not one craving ever since! You can do it people!

Just a reminder to help with the quitting..
When we lose focus we’re forgetting our goals, were forgetting What we’re doing and our reasons Why we’re doing this, and that’s why when it's hard we’ll accept almost any reasonable suggestion that our minds give us,.. such as 🚬 smoking.
You’ve done the smoking habit for years now so it’s hardly surprising that there’s no obstruction or blockage to smoking unless you remain in Focus.
If you go off track your mind will wander and will accept many different suggestions as we forget what our Focus is, If we struggle to remember what we had for dinner 4 days ago it’s not surprising we easily forget our goals, if it’s only a mental picture that we obtained at the start of our Quit then we’re going to need to reinforce that to succeed at this Very Tough but highly rewarding Quest.
Remember the saying ‘out of sight, Out of mind’ well its true, but the good news is.. it also works the opposite way around too.
‘In my sight, In my mind’ which is why tangible items such as printed documents work really well, ie: fridge magnets, stickers or certs, postings, reminders on your fridge or bedroom wall are powerful tools.. ‘In my sight, In my mind’
Focus is a Strong, Quick and Definitive Remembrance of our goals which remind us in the hard times What & Why we’re doing this and what the rewards are in order to help keep us on track and acts as an obstruction or blockage to any wrong doing such as smoking.
Success is a matter of viewpoint, so.. what do you see today.!! 🏅
We can change the world by the way we see it with our knowledge, we can also change ourselves in the same way, stay Focused folks.
You already know this info but I just want to help you increase your chances of success.
Cheers Everyone. 👍 🍺 🍺
