So today is 6 March 2018. I have finally managed to stick to my New Year’s resolutions….of quite smoking. Yes, today is my third day without a ciggy! Congratulations to me! Hahaha. The smokers out there would understand what I’m talking about when I say it is tuff! It’s hard! But yet also do-able.
In the perfect world, I think we would just easily say “no thanks” for the first cigarette, but yeah, we don’t live in a perfect world do we? We all have noticed by now that life is a bitch and will stab you in any way possible. Well, a cigarette helped me cope with that thought. That was my escape from killing the world…Now it is also gone….Now I have no choice but to face the world head on. But its fine, I know I can do it! Why? Because I am not the same person I was 3 days ago…3 years ago….3 minutes ago…
I am fighting a gruesome fight inside of me…I am NOT a quitter, Never was…never will be! That’s probably the fact that makes it the more difficult to leave the smoking. So, I decided to change my mindset around it. I am not Quitting, I am merely “dis-positioning myself from my packet of cigarettes” forever.
Now, that, my dear friends….is what I call “mind-over-matter-control”
I have come to realize a few things about myself the last few months:
1. I often venture outside all to find the answer, only to come back and see that it has been in front of me the entire time.
2. I don’t blame myself anymore for NOT seeing the answers in front om me. I wasn’t ready at that time to see the answers.
3. My journey has changed me.
4. I must venture
I will keep you updated on my journey regarding the smoking thing.
All I have to say at this point, DON’T GIVE UP! #StickItOut
