Going To Be Quitting Smoking Soon

Tuesday, September 06, 2016

Hello everyone

Well I took the first step to the rest of my life. Yes I mean it. I took the first step to quit smoking and I will be quitting on September 14 at 9:30 am my time.

Everyone has told me that quitting smoking is the wrong thing for me to do but to me its the right thing for me to do at this point in my life, I have smoked for over 30 years now (started when I was 17) and I want to be able to quit without any problems so I called addiction services and they are starting a quit smoking group in 2 weeks and I will be attending it for 6 weeks.

You see when I went for a walk the other day with my family, I was breathing heavily and I knew it was time then. I want to do this not only for my family but for me and my health. I want to be able to go for long walks without stopping and I want to be able to exercise more without getting out of breath.

My health is very important to me because I don't want to end up having a heart attack like my husband did or dying of cancer like my father did. I value my life and my health so that is why this is so important to me. I have the support I need and all I need now is the motivation to succeed where I have failed so many times before.

You only get one chance at life take while you can because you never know when the man upstairs will take it from you.
