TO THE NEWBIES OF 2010
EXCERPT FROM THE FIRST POST IN THIS STRING:
"Three years ago, I was where you are. Everyone here has been there at one time. We understand what you're going through. Nobody here is a superhero. We're just addicts like you who found the rope earlier. And, we can each promise you… the rope is climbable, it does get easier, and there IS a place for you up here.".....O'Bob
THIS CLASSIC MESSAGE IN THE FIRST POST IN THIS STRING GAVE ME AND MANY OTHERS, HOPE AND ENCOURAGEMENT WHEN FIRST QUITTING.
CLIMB THAT ROPE ONE DAY AT A TIME. HANG ON TIGHT NO MATTER WHAT! EVEN IF YOU CAN'T CLIMB FOR THE MOMENT, IT IS YOUR LIFELINE. AND IT WILL DETERMINE THE PATH YOUR LIFE LEADS. FREEDOM IS WORTH EVERY (possible) BLISTER, HIGH FIVE SLAPS AND PATS ON THE BACK ON THE WAY UP. LEARN WHAT YOU CAN! READ, WATCH JOEL'S VIDEOS, ASK QUESTIONS, AND CELEBRATE THE BIG AND SMALL VICTORIES EACH DAY!
YOUR LIFE IS DEPENDING ON YOU!
AND YES, YOU CAN DO THIS!
WENDY-climbed that ol' rope over 3 years ago, after 39 years of nicotine addiction. Will always remember that one puff equals ALL the addiction. No craves here, just raves for freedom.
