It is a really hard habit to break.
I stopped 14 years ago when I received a call telling me that my Dad was dying of cancer. I was sitting there smoking at the time. I got off the phone and looked at my kids and knew that I didnt want them to feel what I was feeling at that moment so i stubbed out the cigarette and threw the rest of the packet in the bin and never looked back. I found it was easier to give up for the sake of my children. It is hard but you know that you are killing yourself and if you can perhaps start thinking that you have to do this so that you are there for your kids and grandchildren.
I know people try hypnosis and say that helps so perhaps that something you could try.
You will notice that after only a week of not smoking that you skin will look better and you will start to look younger…thats a great bonus.
IF you catch a cold it wont be as hard to get over as when you were smoking.
You wont stink anymore…even though you dont notice it…if you smoke then you smell. Wait until you no longer smoke and walk past a smoker in the street. The smell is truely disgusting.
You will save so much money. Its amazing how much money is spent on cigarettes.
You can do this. It wont be easy but you, your children and future grand children are worth it.
Good luck…stay strong and remember…you are worth it.
