I am so proud to announce that as of today, I have been quit 7 years and have no deseire to ever smoke again.
I gave up a 3 pack a day 20+ year addiction.
I really do love myself enough to quit something that never did anything for me except steal whatever it could from me.
I quit on tax day becuz the feds tried to rip me off of $10K and it took 2 years to get it straightened out. I decided to take the feds off my payroll wherever I could. This is one place they will never see me spend another penny towards their insanity!
I exercise regualarly, I cleaned up my diet and eat extremely healthy. I drink plenty of water. I get plenty of sleep. I have lost over 160 pounds and am keeping it off. I am no longer diabetic. I have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The additional bonus is NO MORE ANXIETY AND PANICE ATTACKS :)
I'm nearly 60 years old, but feel more like in my 30's. I'm off to new business deals and am loving my life.
It took a lot of work on my part. I don't want anyone else to have control over my health or what I put in my body. If I don't take care of myself, it leaves me wide open to letting others take care of me, my health, and my finances.....and ultimately.....my happiness.
If you want your health and life back from a controling addiction......you have to work at it. You have to want it more than anything.
You have to want it even if no one else around you does it. You have to love yourself enough to say "enough" of poor treatment to yourself.
There is no magic pill or a magic wand to stop it.....it takes work that only you and you alone have to do. Never give up and never give in. Keep going even if you think you can't take one more step or it gets too hard.
I never thought I could do it....but here I am 7 years down the road. It hasn't been all rainbows and butterflys. I've had some really bad times hit me during these past 7 years......but I am stronger becuz of it!
If I can do it......anyone can......as long as you stop making excuses and thinking you can't. You have the power......now stand up and own it!
I'm celebrating with a massage, manicure/pedicure......and eating out at my favorite resteraunt that serves organic food and a salad bar filled with healthy things that are good and healing for my body!
I am actually turning eighteen next month but the legal age for e cigs are eighteen. I have been vaping since I was fourteen and I was so so addicted to the nicotine and how it made me look that I never realized the outside consequences. People may not care about what I am saying right now but if you are reading this pls plssss stop smoking. It harms your body I’m ways you could never imagine.
I just learned that I have emphysema after being hospitalized in March and April. In April, I had double pneumonia. In March, I had pnuemonia only in my left lung and after 4 days in the hospital came out feeling GREAT. After the April hospital stay, 10 days, I am still feeling terrible - but, the doctors say my immune system is out of whack - particularly the immunoglobulin E or IgE. And...
