I finally quit smoking 2 weeks ago.
I was gonna write this post the day I decided to quit, but I've quit so many times I wanted to be absolutely sure I was done before I shared this story with you all. I've smoked at least a pack every 2 days for the last 25 years and have tried and failed many times to quit, so what's so different this time?
I HAVE NO IDEA!!
I just decided I was done. I finished the last 5 or 6 cigarettes I had in that last pack and decided never to buy another. I even went to the 7-11 on the corner and made the lady I usually get my smokes from promise to never sell me cigarettes again. (She did...and turned me down when I came back 3 days later...I love her)
Next I told all my Facebook friends that I was quitting. I had to be held accountable because it is so easy to slip when it comes to nicotine. I was surprised to see an outpouring of support. People who never comment on my posts were wishing me luck and offering advice. It was really quite humbling. I'm telling you all this to share the most important part of all this...
I FINALLY FOUND MY NICHE!!!!!! lol
My journey isn't over, I still have cravings for cigarettes and have to be careful not to slip up and start up again out of pure habit, but I think exploring "Quitting Smoking" as a Niche, has some awesome potential. Stay tuned party people...Flizzy's life just got interesting!!
Thanks for reading, and wish me luck
