My Quit:
"In life, there are no accidents." That tired cliché holds for some moments in my life as folks and circumstances, even a piece of modern literature, mark for a purpose.

Recently at 52, I reread EAST of EDEN, and I considered Steinbeck's mythic themes, most especially the concept of CHOICE from the Hebrew word timshel, "Thou mayest."

Choice is a gift never to be regarded lightly. I gain personal fortitude in timshel with many life facets, one of these being I CHOOSE not to smoke. My choice. My quit. It is my hope that others reading this have likewise been empowered by their quits.

To those still in the pondering stage, you too can endow your life in ways beyond your quit. I invite you to do so. My own feel good timshel is not an exclusivity. Come take my hand; others and I will help, if you like.

Advice:
Cut back in quantity BEFORE your quit.

Remember that most suffered greatly in their quit beginnings.

Spend time in habitats not associated with smoking.

Most importantly, keep a positive mentality.

photoSet a date 2 months in front. Smoke less every day. Convince yourself each time you smoke that you don't really need this! Remember: ITS ALL IN YOUR HEAD!!!
