Never quit trying to quit.

Posted 02 April 2017 by Trevor

Thought I'd chuck a journal entry up, hopefully it might help a few of you struggling to get off the green.
I'm 35, had my first cone at 13, and by 15, I was an every day smoker. And I've smoked every day since then. For years I was a huge pot advocate, and I still am in many ways, but I've got a point in my life where I know it's doing me more damage than good, so it's time to quit for good.
This isn't my first time. I've been down this road at least a dozen times before. And failed. But here is where my advice might help...
Don't ever quit trying to quit. Ever. Don't beat yourself up when you can't get through a day without a smoke, I've been there too and quitting isn't easy. It takes practice, and sometimes, our head just isn't in the right place, or life throws you a curve ball, and you end up back where you started. Don't let the situation get you down. You tried, and you can try again.
Never quit trying to quit.
I don't know what it is this time, but l feel infinitely stronger this time. Maybe it's all the practice, maybe life is in the right place. Maybe this time, my hearts really in it. Time will tell, but right now, I'm two days clean and feeling strong. I still get cravings, but since I've been down this road before, I know what to expect, which makes it easier to deal with. I know what works for me, and what helps. And hey, if it all goes to shit tomorrow and I blaze up, then fuck it, I'll try again.
Never quit trying to quit...
I hope this helps even one of you out there to stay quit, or push through the week, the day, hell even an hour without smoking. Sometimes all we need is a little support. I'm here for anyone who needs some support.
Never quit trying to quit... Believe me, every time you try makes the next time that little bit easier.
