Fear of Failure

This is it! Today is my quit smoking day!

Today is my first quit smoking day and I am excited, nervous and a bit afraid. I have tried to quit smoking a few times in the past only to have failed. Once I made it to the two month mark and the other times I made it to the three month mark. Failure sucks and I do not what to fail again, this time I want to be successful and never, ever smoke again.

I have certainly tried to evaluate my past failures and hope to have learned from my mistakes. I do know that about the three month period (for me) is when the real mind games begin and thus far I have given in to these mind games in the past. I am aware of this so hopefully I will be prepared when the time comes.

I am keeping a journal to include some planning ahead. I will try to share with you how each day is going and some of the benefits of quitting (i.e., better sense of smell) as they happen for me.

I really hate the smoking habit/addiction and do not want to spend the rest of my life chained to cigarettes.

What about you, have you successfully be able to overcome a controlling habit or addiction?  If so, how did it make you feel? If not, please do not give up, try and try again until you succeed.
