| I finally told my dad I quit smoking today. This is a huge step for me because I was not going to tell him until I was sure I could do it, and he has always been so bothered that I smoke. Yet he never hounded me about it. And I never smoked in front of him. |
Well, he decided to tell me that he smoked for 18 years (I was born when he was 40, so I am assuming this was over by the time I was born). I am kindof shocked!! He also told me his quit story. He also had an easy time of quitting. He made the decision and stuck with it without much problem. About two months into his quit he said it got very hard for him, but he made it through. And 4 years later he had just one! And it took him 2 1/2 years to quit again! I really took this to heart since our early quits sound so similar. I wanted to write this out in case I need a reminder later on... He is a great inspiration for me since his age and health are something to aspire towards!!
Everyday is getting better for me, and now I feel like telling everybody that I quit!! (I have held out because I was afraid of failing again). I don't think I will worry about that any more because today I am not going to smoke, and tomorrow will take care of itself...
