I have been a smoker for more than 20 years and to be honest, I am totally sick of it! With all of the money I have spent on cigarettes, I could have seriously bought a house and that totally makes me disgusted. My husband has smoked longer than me and getting him on board to quit with me hasn’t been an an easy convince. I have always maintained that it would be easier if both of us quit, rather than just one of us quitting. I have finally won this battle.
I think we often overlook the obvious reason to try to quit smoking, our health. Most people’s brains are wired to think that if we aren’t sick now, then I’ll worry about it when or if it happens. The problem is, when it happens, it’s often too late.
Other than our health, the reason to quit that affects us everyday, is the incredible amount of money we are spending each month. It is simply ridiculous. By quitting, it is like adding a second income to our monthly finances. I think this is what finally convinced my husband that this nasty habit has to go. Our money is simply going ‘up in smoke’.
We tried the Nicorette gum which hasn’t been that great although it helps. What we have found to work is RJ Reynolds VUSE e-cigarette. It has great taste, helps to curb the craving, and we are slowly, but surely, forgetting about smoking, and the cost is far less than cigarettes and it has to be less harmful.
If you are trying to quit smoking, please let me know how you are kicking this incredibly disgusting habit.
And remember, whatever your circumstance, ‘This Is The Life’.
