Kicking the Habit

  1. Another reason to quit…
    This may not seem attainable and maybe you and your fiance don’t even want to…
    but, you are going to be married and it certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility that you two could have a baby. I mean, there are a number of same sex couples who adopt or have surrogates.
    You don’t want to leave that child earlier than is necessary.

    It only takes about two or so weeks for the body to no longer be physically addicted to nicotine. So go on with ya bad self girl and do it! You can do it! You can do it!
    This message brought to you by someone who has never been addicted to nicotine and has no idea how hard it is.But I’m sure you can do it!

    1. We have talked about children before, she wants carry while I lean more toward adoption. You make a good point and I will add that to my list of reasons to quit. Seems silly I hadn’t considered that before.

      And thank you, thank you, thank you for the words of encouragement!

  2. I echo everything that A Boy Named Sue has said. While I too have never been addicted to nicotine, many of my friends are and I can relate somewhat to their struggles.
    Just remember that two weeks isn’t anything more than that. Heck, life usually lets you know it’s been two weeks after a month goes by – in other words, it’s gonna fly fast!

    1. I really hope it does. I’ve always told my non-smoking friends that trying to quit cigarettes is probably one of the hardest things a person can do. The withdrawal is hard! I get to a point where I feel uncomfortable in my own skin and nothing makes it better. But I know that it will pass and if I can just hold on and stay positive and remember why I am doing this I will make it.

      Thank you for stopping by and encouraging me :)

      1. Not entirely sure if it will help, but a coworker of mine found a “healthy addiction” (her words, not mine) to use a substitute. She actually ate celery any time she found herself needing a hit. Like, a lot of celery. But from what I know, she’s now dropped cigarettes for just under a year. So if it works, run with it.

  3. While I never smoked, but many people in my family have (and still are)…my dad quit cold turkey, by spending most of the time in his bedroom (while quitting that is) because that was the room he never ever smoked in (and he used to smoke two packs a day)…I guess if you have a place you don’t smoke, that could also work…but the cliche ‘a day at the time’ always applies!
    Thank you for sharing a part of your life, and hope to read more!

    1. That is a good idea! I normally don’t smoke at all at home, it’s at work that is the problem. As soon as I get there I crave one and all the people I work with go outside all the time to smoke so I’m going to be left alone a lot. One of them is thinking about quitting with me and i really hope she does. Either way like you said “a day at a time”!
