So much for my first attempt of quitting cigs.
That’s ok, I can try it again… in the near future.
Just because it did not work now, does not mean it won’t work later.
I took a break from trying to quit. Made sense to me!
It seemed, the more I tried to quit, the more I smoked. What is up with that?
It is said, that you must want to do something bad enough, before you can accomplish it. Guess I did not want to quit.
…and time went by….
The day came.
I wanted to quit.
I am ready to quit!
… and then the ‘self imposed test’ I designed
came into play.
Why? I ask meself. (that is the test. WHY?)
-The cost is getting ridiculous.
-Cigarettes were controlling my life.
- Drive the car; smoke a cig
- Eat a meal: smoke a cig
- Wake up: smoke
- Before bed: gotta have a cig
- Who is in control here?
- I am better than this!
- and on and on….
- and pray I never run out of cigarettes. That is a very insecure and frightening sensation. Grounds for a pure panic attack!
…why am I still smoking? It is time to move on to —
I will ‘cut down on the amount I smoke each day’.
Wean off gradually and then one day, no more CIGARETTES.
So, onto the journey of becoming a NON SMOKER!
Several weeks went by and
I forgot to keep track or wean down.
It is not time for me to quit smoking.
I do not really want to quit right now.
But I do!
but I think I might… really?
… and time went on.
Join me next time…for my sure fire, award winning, Plan C
