Quitter for Today

I'm not going to lie, I've battled with smoking since the young age of 14 (I'm now in my 30s). Unfortunately peer pressure got me early, and I have been smoking on and off ever since. I've evolved from a peer pressured, full-on smoker to a social smoker, to a smoke-when-I-drink smoker, then back to full-on smoking again, and so on and so forth.  My last relapse was after having quit for six years. Now, I've been 100% smoke free for the past eight months, and here's how I try to get back on track each time…

Not unlike an alcoholic, I've decided: once an addict, always an addict. I treat my addiction to smoking in the same manner, applying the one day at a time approach.  By setting short-term, as opposed to long-term or lifelong goals I find it easier to say no.  With each smoke free day that goes by, I am mentally stronger going into the next.  

For today I'm breathing with Happy Lungs. Tomorrow is a mystery!
