I quit Smoking ... Again
I quit smoking 🚭…. Again. I swear I’ve said that so many times now that my family no longer celebrates the news. For a bit of background, I have attempted to quit smoking 15 times (maybe more… I can only recall 15). Each time was an absolute dumpster fire. I would make it a day or two… sometimes just a few hours. I know, sad. It seems that removing nicotine from my life is the one thing I just can’t seem to do with drive and dedication.
This time however, I am pleased. I’ve gone a full week without a cigarette at all. In fact, I can only think of a few times that I have actually yearned for one. Of course, I am craving one now… but that is most likely because I am writing an article about the subject. ✍️
It’s funny… this process has always been such a rolling dung heap process for me. Normally, it would only take a few hours for me to begin falling apart and grab my shoes to run to the gas station. I’ve been controlling my cravings with a Strawberry/banana flavored vape. Which, I’m aware, isn’t much better, but for me… it’s progress.
I sometimes wonder if my life would be completely different if I had never made the decision to begin smoking in the first place. I’m sure it would. Slight changes to the life you’ve led can alter the course of time. Moreso, I wonder what differences I would have with my health.
