I Quit

Yes, I did...
Though its not good to hear... I am still proud to say that I AM A QUITTER :)
Not so long ago, just 2 months... and still counting :)

For almost 10 years (unconciously), I was a slave... addicted to this thing.
Time runs fast...
From just-want-to-experience became a habbit...
The habbit leads to addiction.

I can't start the day without a stick and a cup.
Go to bathroom with another stick.
Heading to work... another one.
Upon reaching the office, before entering the building... one more.
That's just before 9AM...
and I feel its a shame to list everything...

What made me decide to quit?
One reason... its because of love.
To our Lord God who is hurting everytime I puff and kill myself.
To my loved ones who never get tired of asking me to stop.
And to myself, who will carry on the disease...

How? I focused. Analyze the pros and cons...
After I realized that I was commiting suicide... and continously hurting people that I love...
I stopped.

It was not easy. I chilled.
Cravings sucks... but staying focus helped a lot.

Until one day, I just realized that I don't think about it anymore.
It was so gone in my system... that I even fail to remember that I was once addicted to it.
And I am happy and thankful that I quit.

Just yesterday, my cousin was rushed to the hospital because of chest pain and difficulty in breathing.
This morning, she said that it was Bronchitis.
Bronchitis is an acute inflammation of the air passages within the lungs, caused by several viruses, bacteria, chemical solvents and SMOKE.

I never imagine that this situation will ever happen... Me - giving advices on how to stop smoking?!?
And as I told her, maybe, she's the real reason why I quit, so that when this day comes, I can support and guide her all the way...

As we were 'chatting' I was able to give her some points on how to quit... shared my own experiences and some styles on how-to-do-it!

'The secret' is the WILL POWER.
Simple. Its not difficult to stop the addiction when yourself is determined to do it.

Presently, my cousin is at home, resting... please pray for her immediate recovery.
I know its never too late for her...
Now,she's decided to quit and I know that she can do it.

I was once on their shoes, those people who said... I can't.
But the truth... it's not I can't but I don't want to...
And that is the difference.
