I quit smoking....sorta
Sunday, August 18, 2013
I have been smoking since I was 16. As my activity increases, I need my lung capacity back!
I have been struggling to quit for the past 3 months. I am now in a guilt-filled on again/off again relationship with cigarettes.
A friend of mine said something that made me smile:
Only when you quit for good can you truly unleash your inner athlete....the one that has been very good so far at reaching new milestones!
"unleash my inner athlete" - I like that!
So, as I feel the cravings set in I think about her....that inner athlete. I also think about my goal of completing a sprint triathlon...triathletes don't smoke! I will focus on my goals...on wanting them more than the cigarette.
Some gum and pretzels won't hurt either!
