3 years-No looking back! (Read 285 times)

    This coming May 19 will mark my 3 year anniversary of quitting smoking! 

     

    I just wanted to say to everyone that is trying to quit, to keep it up and if you have any problems just remember you are not alone!

     

    I was in Afghanistan on mission when I realized that I could survive so much adversity that was being thrown at me but I couldn't stop that habit!  It became a personal challenge not only to stop but to QUIT for good!  Having stopped a few times previously, I knew the odds were against me.  I actually got angry, that I could handle everything but not the cigs!

     

    Anyway, If I can successfully quit while on mission in a war zone, you can do it too!  Just set your mind and when ever you get that urge, do something physical!  Go for a run, do push-ups, jumping jacks anything except light that cig!

     

    You can do it!  I'm living and breathing proof that you can!!

     

    HOOAH

          Congrats on the anniversary, Rob! 

           

          My quit date is Nov 11, 2001.  I still have dreams about smoking.  Like I can feel the cig in my hand, and I can smell it when I inhale.  And in my dream I am always trying to figure out how I can hide the smell from other people.  Sometimes I even dream that I'm arguing with the store clerk about the outrageous price (over $8 now here in CT!).  When I quit, they were like $3.75 / pack.  Also, I caught myself just the other day, absently thinking I needed to stop an buy a pack on my way to where ever I was going.  And it's been 8 1/2 years now! 

           

          You are a tough guy for sticking with this.  Not to mention your service in Afghanistan - deepest graditude for that.
