Method: cold turkey
Quit 3 times before, all cold turkey, without trouble. The first day is always my hardest, after that I’m fine.
But this time I’m scared I’m too late. I was always a very (very very!!) active person, always outside and always moving. The last 5 years I havent been active at all due to circumstances. During that time I also smoked A LOT!! Now I’m scared I’ll never be fit and healthy again because I smoked way too long and I’m way too old to become active again. It kills me to think about never riding ky skates again or not going on hr long hikes again. I hope I’ll get healthy again!
My daughter (almost 10) basically begged me all this time (and even cried) to please stop smoking. I couldn’t and felt like the shittiest mom ever. Today I told her I’m going to quit, she teared up! She was so happy! In the middle of a pandemic and in the middle of a divorce, in the middle of the shittiest period of my life. What better time eh?
There we go! Hopefully this time for good!
