After attempting several times to quit smoking (44 years), I am 10 days smoke free and really don't even miss it. In fact, after the last attempt and subsequent failure, my self-esteem plummeted because I internalized the failure. It became such an unconcious habit to stop and buy two packs ever three days to last a week (I had cut down from a pack a day from all the other attempts) and I challenged myself to follow through this time.
Watching my mother and my sister die from COPD and emphysema didn't make me quit, but having my first grandchild two years ago has given me more incentive because I want to see him graduate high school and college. He is the apple of my eye and I will do whatever is necessary to avoid negatively influencing his health.
After this is conquered, my intention is to socialize more and work on weight loss/exercise. At 58, it is time for a change and this is my year of abundance!
