Don't be an Ostrich!

July 25, 2016

Terrie’s blog got me to thinking.  (http://community.becomeanex.org/pg/blog/read/8469234/copd-heat-humidity-etccommitment-and-why-i-havent-been-here)
I smoked for over 35 years.  I was not unaware of the dangers, but refused to accept that any one of them would happen to me.  Well, maybe, WAY down the line, when I was REAL old.  (And then you’re gonna die of SOMETHING anyway, right?!)   But even then my addicted mind said “It’s not going...

Here's How You Quit Smoking

July 23, 2016

Have a place to go with people to talk to during your weakest moments. Have the courage to reach out for help when you need it, from people who have been there. I promise you that no matter what you are going through in regards to quitting smoking, someone here has been through something similar, and they can help you get through it. I have been quit for a long time, and I owe at least part of that success to the people on this site who helped me out when I needed it most. If you need help, all... Read full post

I've said it before and I'll say it again. "Salt air is highly corrosive." :-)

I Fell into the Vortex

July 22, 2016

I fell into a hole - I know it well.

It even has a name - depression.

I tried not to fall - grasping hold of something, anything, that I know is important

But it all seemed so meaningless....

Finally, I landed and stopped to take a breath 

(what little I have left)

And began the slow process of climbing my way out.

Falling takes hours - climbing takes weeks, even Months.

But I'm grateful that yes, I know my way out.

When I get there, I'll let you... Read full post

Healthy Smokers

July 21, 2016

I have heard many tiimes here how somebody was quitting because they dislike the "habit" but so lucky to have dodged the health bullet! Well, in my opinion that is another Myth, i.e. Nico-lie! But what do I know?

Here's an article published today that might shed some llight on the matter:

You feelin wacky? it might have been effects of tobbacci.

July 21, 2016

This changing your routine can be serious business. It can be so dam awkward after that first month.

My three hardest days in a row were in the mid fifties and they were 3 IN A ROW.

Looking back on that now, was that the fight with myself to fight all fights? Were my emotions trying to force me back into slavery? I didn't know where I was.

You are in the middle of it and you are exposed TO YOURSELF.

It's a powerful moment when you realize your future is in your hands,... Read full post
