I would like to share my ex- smoking experiences, wishing I can encourage and support some people to quit. I am a single new mother of a couple of children and I had an unpleasant divorce which made things more painful for my life. Thus I had to take a toll on my strength and intellectual state.
It is true that I was a smoker before my divorce, I actually must admit that I used to smoke much more after my personal breakup. It felt encouraging and retained my mind occupied with something alternative than my problems. But I realized in the near future that this had a great impact on my children . They were being mocked during their school everyday life, simply because their own clothes smelt of smoke. Also they had the threat of having affection by extra smoking. I finally decided that enough is enough as well as to stop this routine for ever.
Hence, I began a very difficult process associated with trying nicotine, patches, gums and sprays as Smoke Deter purchased from local drug merchants. Some of those helped me to turn aside from cigarettes and that was the first important step. But as I soon realized, the most important help came from myself. The will power is very important when somebody wants to make the right decisions. So, when I had strong desire to smoke, I was bearing on my mind, my children (as I wanted to be a good example for them) and of course the health damage that I was noticing on my body. From the first months of giving up smoking I started feeling healthier, fit and happy. It was like I was offering to myself a gift.
Now, I have to smoke for almost a year and I feel proud of me. I believe that everything is a state of mind and thus I am sure that anyone could manage to quit if only has strong motives and concentrates on his target.
