|My Quit Date||Wednesday, April 17, 2002|
|My one tip for beginners||Quitting is simple--just don't put one in your mouth. I didn't say easy, I said simple (as in uncomplicated). Don't make it harder than it really is.|
You're oh so right, Dave! I doubt many of us believed we could go the entire day when first starting out but look what happened to each of us when those first few baby steps were allowed to build. Even the last few minutes are worthy of a big big smile and at least one deep breath!
Getting new quitters to abandon the concept of measuring success in terms of quitting FOREVER - a mighty big bite to chew upon and a terrible time for a celebration (when you're dead) - and instead getting them to see each challenge overcome, and each hour of freedom and each day of healing as the full and complete victory that each reflects, now that's challenging! You're not quitting you but quitting nicotine while recovering you! This can be one of the most wonderful adventures in our lives if we'll only allow the next few minutes a chance to breathe!
We're with you in spirit!
This next few minutes are entirely doable!Let healing flow!
