Yesterday was the 1 year mark for quitting smoking nicotine. 366 days ago. The very thing that gripped my life for almost 2 decades. Now being the longest since I’ve quit ever, it’s easy. But the first month wasn’t, nor the second. Over time the cravings subsided completely, and now just the smell of it repulses me. I heard that doctors who do surgery often can tell if a person is a smoker or not just by seeing what their skin looks like from the inside after they cut them open. It really makes me think about how damaging cigarettes can be if done for an entire lifetime, and the pain it causes. My grandmother and grandfather both died from complications of lung cancer. It took me over 12 years after they died for me to realize I was headed that way. I’m stoked I quit.
If you’re thinking about quitting and need someone to chat with who went through the bullshit and the trials, DM me🙏
