Playing Many Parts

Cafe Thursday – No More Smoking Section

I was a smoker. I smoked on and off for about 12 years, and have decided that I will no longer be a smoker. I have cowered in shame in my garage and hid from my friends at church and even my family members because I was ashamed of my habit. Wisdom has finally come and I have decided that I will no longer live that life.

I do not stand in any kind of judgement of others, but for me, I must quit and move on with my life in a much more healthy pursuit. I want to be healthy. I want to be around for my kids as much as it is in my power to do so, so I am quitting.

It has only been 6 days and about 18 hours since my last cigarette, so I really do have a long way to go, but I will do it. I ran into withdrawl symptoms yesterday that I did not anticipate because I have been weening myself for months, but that will not deter me either (although. . .the past 48 hours has been the worst by far).

If you are a regular here, or a family member, keep me in your thoughts and prayers for the next few days if you can. It is challenging. . .but I will do it. . in God’s power I will not smoke again.

    I was a chain smoker for around 20 years.I gave up two and a half years ago, with the help of patches and God.He said that if I try then He will help,and he did.
    It’s a lot about attitude. Be determined. It’s the BEST thing I ever did.
    Just remember- If you have a smoke, you’ll have to start all over again. That thought still keeps me going.

  3. I actually used this system to help quit the ciggies, and i’ve been using one of those anhilators as I’m a “motion” craver, it gives me something to do with my hand.
