In the 1950’s, this might have been a good question to ask. People just didn’t understand.
Why quit now in this day and age?
It will completely destroy your life if you continue. Not only will it control every aspect and every single moment of your life, but it will slowly kill you.
Sounds harsh, but if you’re thinking about quitting, I bet you’re sick of it controlling you.
I know I was, and it’s a fantastic feeling not having that issue now.
It’s one of the worst smells in the world.
The vast majority of people hate the smell. As time goes on, it’s tolerated less and less by establishments.
I smoked in my apartment and everything inside smelled horrible.
I was often times embarrassed when I got to work, because my work uniform, although clean of spots and grease, still reeked of stench, and my co-workers did notice.
Sometimes they would comment and ask if I just one, but I didn’t.
My poor cats, too, had to put up with my daily usage.
Often times, they would jump off my lap when I lit up, because they, too, hated the smell. I wasn’t just hurting myself, I was hurting them, too.
The energy that you get when you don’t smoke is out of this world.
Just imagine being able to run a marathon, be as confident as you were born to be, speak your mind when you wanted to, and do all the activities you’ve always wanted to do.
That’s what you don’t get when you’re a long term smoker.
When you aren’t obsessing over your next fix minute-by-minute, you think about other things.
Your day is no longer dependent on when you get a 10 minute break at work, or when there is a commercial break on TV, or if there’s 15 minutes before the bus arrives.
When you stop, you don’t think about those things anymore. You think about things that are good for you, and that indirectly creates a positive mindset.
It’s keeping you from reaching all your goals in life, too. It stands between you and everything you want and dream of.
If you weren’t a smoker, you could own the world and you know it.
I bet you’ve often thought “I’ll just smoke one more day and then I’ll turn my life around.”
I knew my life was never going to get any better as long as I remained in my current lifestyle. It was just the simple truth.
I was never going to own a house, have a loving relationship, buy a car, move out of my apartment, buy the things I wanted, and be the person I always wanted to be.
That is the honest truth.
Just do it, throw everything away, and never look back.
Things will get better, and you will LOVE life. You will cry tears of joy each and everyday.
