Actually, I’m typically very low key about birthdays.
But today is mine, and I’m definitely not low key. Why?
I QUIT SMOKING.
All of the nicotine is out of my system. The last cigarette that I had was Tuesday, and that was only one. Therefore, it’s all gone. All that’s left is beating the habit.
What method did I use? Nothing. Willpower. Cold turkey.
Personally, I endorse this method, because lozenges, patches, shots, gum…. they all have nicotine. That’s the part that you have to break. Ever wonder why cigarette companies are quick to endorse these quitting methods? Well, I’m thinking that it’s no coincidence.
That was my birthday present to myself, and my daughter, this week. I’ve tried to do it before, but for some reason, I think that this time it will stick.
I’ll keep you updated.
