First off, I know most times people saying giving up or giving it up, it’s usually a bad thing. Well, not in this case. In this case, my case, it’s a good thing!!!
It took me a year, a year of saying that I was going I give it up. You can look back and almost one year ago, exactly, at the beginning of this year, I said I was going I quit. But, I struggled an struggled with quitting. This year threw a lot of hurtles at me but, with the support of a few friends, my husband, and my family, I got through them.
Although I have ended the year with not as many friends as I had at the beginning of the year, I gained a few friends who are closer than ever, a wonderful husband (who’s birthday is today), a stepson (who I am determined to meet next year), a new baby boy (wonderful addition to the family), and a few more holidays I get I celebrate during the year. I also have a job where my boss actually appreciates me and values the work I do. :))
Now that I have managed to talk about everything except what I was talking about quitting at the beginning–I am going to be totally done smoking! I haven’t had one in over a week and a half. Getting the hang of things at home, handling stress, things are getting better, and how to cope over all–so, I know I can do this! I don’t need them and I am going to make it this time! :)))
