I consider myself to be a person of average intelligence. I know that if you stick your hand in a fire you will be burned. I know that if I eat certain foods my colon will go crazy. I know not to walk in front of moving vehicles. I don't do these things. With that said, tell me why it is so hard to quit smoking.
I know with each cigarette I am cutting years from my life. I know that the quality of my life will not be as good if I continue to smoke. I hate the way my clothes and I smell. I know all the reasons to quit so why is it so hard to just put them down & never smoke again?
I've read all the quit smoking tips. All say to make a plan, set a date and tell your family and friends you are quitting. Okay, people here it is. On the world wide web, for everyone to see if I'm a failure once again: I am quitting smoking Monday, January 19, 2009. To paraphrase Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with no disrespect intended: I have a dream that one day I will be a non-smoker. Please pray for me to finally quit once and for all. Throw in a few prayers for Behm, he'll need them because I have a tendency to get really cranky when I quit.
