Having my last cigarette and tea in the morning.
Enjoying my last cigarette becaue it was the only thing left to do!
This is my last day of smoking cigarettes. I only smoked one today at 3:00 pm. I’m not going to buy anymore. It’s sad, like losing a best friend. A best friend that wants the worst for me like getting cancer and possibly dying. Instead of smoking, I will write with my old and new best friend that is writing.
I’ve been writing since kindergarden. I got into creative writing since I was in the fifth grade. I enjoyed expressing myself in that creative way. I know as someone that likes to write, it makes me feel better about myself, and its a form of art for me. I’m sure most of you feel similar, or the same, this is some of you may be here or are here on WordPress.
I’ve got to keep a goal of staying healthy and enjoying my life without my horrible addiction. Anything unnatural is disgusting to me. I don’t like disgusting. I’m sure some people do! They are in the minority I should hope.
The last time I quit smoking cigarettes, I turned myself off from them by simply saying to myself, “I don’t like cigarettes, I never will like them again, and never wanted them in the begging. If you read my first blog post, I wrote that I quit smoking for one year. During that year, I had the most savings I ever had in my entire life. In New York, where I live, the cigarettes cost me between eight and nine-fifty a pack.
Anyway, anyhow, I look forward to life being nicotine-free. I know I can do it now. I’m glad I outed myself publicly on WordPress. The it helped, and so did my writing about it. Probably the blog more.
I hope all you cigarette smokers find a healthy alternative to smoking. I’d like to hear all your comments about your cigarette addiction, that would be great.
