I have started #23 as of January 1st 2012. I chained smoked the night before, which might have been a mistake… but it was also new years. A crappy end to a crappy year I say!
It’s now day three, and i’m finding myself very easily aggravated, and have noticed that I have the shakes. This isn’t the first time that i’ve tried to quit smoking, but this is definitely the last. I actually quit smoking for two years before, what led to me start smoking again? I don’t really have an excuse for that one, I was in a weak state and decided that smoking was the answer. So I started again, like an idiot.
At 11:50 on December 31st 2011 I had my last cigarette around a fire with friends, acquaintances and strangers. They all knew it was my last one and all gave me full support for my decision. I will always remember that memory, and always look fondly on it when I find myself in a weak situation.
