Jus polished two weeks of off & on smoking during my trial of quitting cigarrettes. But tomorrow on the 8th of December 2019, Its a real-time adventure of breaking the chain. It's going to be a weird change, But you know, i know you know if i've had a smoke, So get ready to be amazed, Cause my hoe wants a mansion and I put my hands up to buy it got dammit.
Peace, lets smash the chain

So in the past two weeks I’ve had two of my kids in to hospital. The first was for a short visit to confirm GP’s diagnosis. The second was to rebreak a badly disfigured broken arm in my son. He was very, dry anxious about the whole thing. It occurred to me later that day that in both cases, I would have had to nip outside in my prior life. It was a weirdly nice reminder of how far I have come because I could remain with my kids the whole time they needed me. Yes, I wanted to get out of hospital, but to leave and not to have a smoke or 10 due to the ‘stress’. See, life will always hand you some stressful times but smoking does NOT make the stress go. That is merely an illusion. I was less stressed by not having to factor in when and how to smoke and the accompanying guilt of leaving my child when they needed my support.
Apologies for the long winded post...but it was a pretty cool thing for me to consider.
Today i flushed my ciggarettes down the toilet and threw my lighter out i feel so much lighter and brighter what was the trigger went out for dinner finished eating and bingo bought a packet without thinking of the consequences. So thats me new start.

Thanks for the comments. Thanks Mrs Smith - glad you find what I post helpful. It's more a journal for me but happy to share my story if it helps others.
Took a walk on the beach this morning. In my previous life I would get up, have 2 cigs, one after the other then head to the beach hoping I wouldn't bump into anyone because I reeked. The cigs also sapped my energy - physical & mental so I would walk the beach breathless and guilty.
Today my head was clear and I felt empowered and strolled down the beach with my head held high. I rocked. Know that sounds a bit OTT but for me this is what its all about - beating this addiction and all that comes with it for 30 years and walking away.....
Have a fab day guys.
