One of my smart and beautiful nieces is quitting smoking today. Hard stuff! She’s had a rough time on and off and smoking is probably a comforting little crutch. I can identify. I smoked like a chimney for 15 years.
But she’s quitting! More power to her!
Sally, if you read this, know that you CAN do it. It’s hard but it gets easier as time passes. And you’ll be so happy when you don’t have to work your life around when you can have a damned cigarette. I was, anyway. I sent you a letter with all this in it but maybe if you see this tonight it will help!
I used nicotene gum and ate really massive amounts of popcorn when I quit, so I’d have something to do with my hands and mouth. It worked. You can do it!
Was that enough rah-rah for you?
Seriously, quitting is a bitch, especially for women, but just tell yourself, outloud, that you are Choosing To Quit Smoking. This empowers you subconsciously and reinforces your decision in a positive way. It doesn’t matter if other people hear you or not. Fuck ’em, you’re doing something important for yourself.
