I discussed the first item on my, “what I don’t like about me” list in the post, “Please Pass the Fickle” and I am working hard every day to overcome this by examining why I feel a certain way, what I am thinking about and changing my thinking and making myself face painful emotions. I know I have a long way to go but I am heading in the right direction.
I am ready to address another issue that I placed on that list, that being my nicotine addiction. I hate my nicotine addiction and even though I have known what to do about it, I haven’t. Not until now!
I have smoked cigarettes since I was a very young girl. This is a self-destructive, controlling addiction that I hate. It really is like having an evil monkey on your back 24/7.
I made a doctor’s appointment and asked him to prescribe a “quit smoking” aid (I have tried cold turkey before and did not get very far). I know I need help and I am no longer going to be afraid to admit it or ask for the help when it is needed.
My quit date is August 07, 2017. I will continue to post progress as well as the journey itself, in the near future.
My goal is to stop all the self-destructive behaviors, thoughts, believes…that has controlled my life and to find a place of self-acceptance and self-love. I am doing this one step at a time, little by little.
I realize that change takes time, but in order to get there you have to take the first step.
