Hello everyone I’m Deedy. As a heavy (chain) smoker, I have been told to quit smoking many times by various healthcare providers. The problem is that I have no self-will and cannot afford the products that would aid in my quitting. I know that quitting will extend my life and add to the quality of life that I have left. My problems are on whether I should try to quit by using my own self-will (cold turkey) or to try to quit by using products and how to successfully carry this mission out.
Smoking affects many areas of my life: exercise, normal activities (climbing a flight of stairs), and last, but definitely not least, endurance during sexual activity. All of the above are great concerns to me, but I am most troubled by the fact that I cannot exercise long enough to make any real difference. Therefore, I just give up all together. Later, I try again—as if something will change—and end up with the same results.
I am in the process of making life-altering changes. I am treating this process as though it was a business plan. I am taking notes, researching, and creating a daily planner. The daily planner would include meals, light exercise, weight training, meditation, feeding my spirit (books, church, and bible study). I addition to my daily planner, I will visit websites such as this one that will teach me how to live.
Anyone having helpful suggestions is welcome to reply.
Have a Blessed Day!
