Today I am grateful for giving up. I’m not normally a quitter, or endorse throwing in the towel, but in this case I gave up smoking.
It’s been 12 months today since I stopped, and the only thought I have about it now is that I wonder why I didn’t do it sooner? It really was such an empowering decision to make.
For anyone who’s interested in the how, I had one session of hypnotherapy then stopped cold turkey, and I’ve never felt inclined to pick one up since.
As a reminder I have an app on my phone called ‘Since I Quit’, which calculates not only the length of time that’s passed, but the number of cigarettes I haven’t smoked, and the amount of money I’ve saved. Currently it says I haven’t smoked 2923.5 cigarettes which has saved me $2631.15.
