I feel I have stepped up my game when it comes to my life and also to my quit. I used to look for any reason to go back to smoking but now I find that instead of
concentrating on my smoking I have taken things into my life to replace it. I also
would play the poor victim with my life where it was all not my fault and things
were forced upon me that I could not control.
I have learned, even though it took a long time to see it, that one has to take
charge of their quit and that it does not just happen. You have to step up your
game and take life head on, deal with those things that try to bring you down and
take control over smoking as if given the chance it will take control back and you
will be back to smoking. This is a marathon and not a sprint. It takes time and
determination to get to where you want to be. I am just over a month into this new quit and feel better about quitting then ever before.
I will survive this as I am strong
