So ya'll, I've decided to quit smoking this week... (cigarettes). I'm kinda scared to do it because of my other issues because it has kept me calm. Thing is, its a crutch and a dangerous one that isn't good for me. I don't want to depend on any chemical when I'm stressed, nervous, sad, etc. Nicotine WD's are hell but that isn't what has me so scared... Its the fact that I'm still actively addicted to something. Giving up narcotics was tough but my battle with that is JUST BEGINNING really.,. The emotional stuff... A lifetime of baggage that I must deal with now. Every day in my life is a struggle. Before I get out of bed I pray for wisdom, protection, and strength.... Dealing with feelings and crap that I've pushed back for so long is terribly difficult...these cigarettes are going to be tough to give up! I've been smoking since I was 14! Its a NASTY habit that I wish I had never started. Its also an expensive habit! Quitting just has to be done so my quit date is Friday. I will be switching to an E cigarette with water vapor or whatever. I just don't think another cold turkey right now is going to work for me! What says you?? Any opinions or advice on the subject?
