I did a lot of soul searching lately and found that my life was completely pointless and without meaning. Today I found meaning. I found the purpose of my life and the reason I feel so down. It’s my cigarettes! They have kept me on my knees financially and health wise I’m so upset about my heart problems that I have NO business smoking. So I see a greater incentive to stop smoking now. I think this is really necessary, not just some whim that I can back down on. It’s on. I’m down with stopping smoking finally!
Might be useful right now:
You can do it! The cravings won’t seem as strong if your focus is on these things you wrote here. Such a great perspective. You are worthwhile no matter what, but treating yourself well because you are worthwhile is an awesome goal. I wish you the best!
Why don’t you ask God for help? I did!
Formerly hopeless smoker,
We’re pulling for you, jukebox. The better health and the money are things worth fighting for. You can do it.
Send good thoughts your way. God speed on quitting
smoking relieves stress…its ok to smoke if you need too imo
“If we find we must have a reason to live… then let us find a worthy goal.”
- Carl Sagan (paraphrased)
although he was speaking more about humanity in general.
Put away some reserve determination for more trying times. This is really not a downer but an upper. You will be prepared, and stronger each time you succeed.
Problem is - it’s bad for your physical health. Some people get by, I guess but the odds are stacked against you. Every day I see people sitting on the smoker’s bench in the sunshine who look like they’ve lived their last. Huddled, in slippers, face drawn and gray, still puffing away.
