1,000 Reasons to Quit Smoking

July 19, 2015

More People with Mental Illness and who live in despair and desperate poverty smoke.  Many with Mental Illnesses are self-medicating and slowly committing suicide.

 

Reason enough to quit? And the next time you light up, or go to the store to buy a pack, imagine asking for each of these ingredients individually. The next time you smoke around children, ask yourself if you want them ingesting these ingredients because you are doing it and if you want them to become a prisoner of the same addiction that despite knowing better, holds you captive. The next time you smoke around animals in your home or car, ask yourself if you want them exposed to it. This is no small thing

 

 

 

quit 21 years ago after seeing my mother in ICU after having her lung removed. swore i would never let my kids see me like that. cold turkey. never wanted one again. the key is to stop thinking of the cig as something that makes you feel good, or relaxes you… i kept saying’ this is making me sick’ every time i lite a cigarette and one day, BAM.. couldn’t bring one to my lips! change what the cigarette means to you.. it will change your life.
