I am now 45 days smoke free. I had 30 days prior to that with a one cigarette slip. I wanted to quit for years...probably 10 of the 15 I smoked. So what worked for me? I just imagined myself somewhere down the road being terminally ill and being told that I could have helped prevent this had I quit smoking. I imagined the anger and resentment I would have towards myself if this were to happen. Knowing that I now have the opportunity to make that change is what truly motivates me. See, I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma 2 years ago and the doctor told me to quit smoking immediately. It took me 2 years to listen, but I finally stepped up to the plate. I cannot change the 15 years I chose to smoke, but I can change today.
