The Decision to Quit Smoking Cigarettes for Good
I Have been thinking of giving up the habbit from last few months, My reasons were a bit differnt, I just wanted to test my will power, wanted to do something that would make me feel good. Money / health were never the only motivation for me.
I am thankful to Raakesh for introducing me to this website as he inspired me to take the decision, Speaking of Raakesh, He has been behind most of my succesful decisions in last 5 years. So for me it was Gods will and I got a signal that my time to quit has come.
I bought the patches and Alcohol (to help me deal with Insomania) yesterday. Cleaned my House completely, No more Ashtrays, threw all the Lighters ( Actualy gave them all to my frnd). I celebrated my last smoke and kept on reminding myself entire evening yesterday that I'll be off smoking. I called my father and gave him this news, and he was really happy, As he has been pushing me to quit ( My Grandfather died of Lung Cancer - he was a Chain smoker).
The Beginning of the End:
This morning I woke up late, broke my usual Schedule of going downstairs to my personal restroom ( Where I took my first smoke with newspaper while I am attending natures call). I just used the more cleaner rest room next to my bed room. I didn't call my Family back in India....as ususaly thats the time I take my second Cigg. I was feeling a bit dizzy, I went late to the office, Cuz I take my third cigg with my Frnd Gloria before we start the work. So what I primarily did was broke all the Ciggaret triggers by alternating my routine.
I felt groggy the entire day, Very sleepy, but It was not that bad as I expected it to be. I was able to focus on my work, Drank lot of water and had Chinese for Lunch. Munched a lot of Organic Baby carrots during the entire day and also drank organic Green tea.
The day was a success, I drank like crazy in the evening 6 drinks of Rum and Coke and 5 Beers. So that I can get to sleep, Yet I woke up at 3 in the morning, With my nasal passages closed and had a lot of wiered dreams.
I am starting the Second Day Now....
So far So Good.....
