For one of the hopefully final posts about the roadblocks of quitting, I’ll be honest. I’ve just been lazy when it comes right down to it. Quitting requires effort, and it’s just been easier to continue to smoke than to challenge myself. I haven’t experienced any major consequences from my actions, yet I realize that I definitely will if I don’t quit now [and I may still in the future]. However, that sort of forward-thinking mentality tends to allude me when it comes to the rush of nicotine through my system in the here and now.
It’s been a long twelve years with this habit. The last couple of months have shown me that it’s possible to cut back, and in a few days, I’ll find out what it’s like to quit.
