I’ve been a smoker on and off for about 15 years. I have quit a few times for months a time, but each time something happened and I ended up once again with a cigarette in my hand.
As you might expect, I get lectured a lot. People seem to have a hard time registering that someone who strives to have a life as healthy and clean as humanly possible could possibly be a smoker. I have thought about it myself and the truth is that some things in life simply don’t make sense.
For the past couple of days I’ve been thinking that maybe I should quit smoking again and for good this time. It seems like for the first time in a long time, all the reasons that made it difficult for me to quit smoking and stick with it are no longer there so I should take advantage of this opportunity.
I read somewhere that it takes about 3 weeks to kick a physical dependence and then the rest of your life to deal with the psychological aspect of it…
The longest journey starts with a single step.
Wish me luck.
