Today is a new day…I don’t need to use today… this is a great day …yes I feel better today…no I feel awesome today . The one thing on my mind is about the date I quit smoking. Most of the feed back I get is ohhhhhh its the hardest thing to quit. Friends I know this , reason being , smokers associate cigarettes with daily rituals. This is where the focus needs to be set. There are things I can do that don’t have the need for smoking. …Yes this is going to be the hardest battle of all. Friends I’m ready…I have this addiction monster at its knees , I refuse to give in . I have a network of friends and family in place … I am reading everyday on how to fight off stress and anxiety.. I am gaining strength by the day. I will never return to the person I was …One of my friends told me that what I was doing is great, just don’t hide from your family or friends if you fail a little , catch it quickly talk to your network of friends and keep moving forward. This statement gave me so much strength , just to know there are people behind me all the way. Friends all i have to say is thank you and today I feel great..
