They say it's beneficial to tell people of your goals in order to feel accountable to reaching them so I am proud (nervous) to tell you all that I am on the nicotine patch to quit smoking… again.
This is not my first attempt but it is the first time that I am publicly announcing my intentions. The last time I didn't even tell my wife for three days because I didn't want to feel like a failure by letting her down. I did start back up again and again and again.
Now may not be the brightest time in my life to quit smoking because my wife is going to hospital on July 14 for an overnight stay. I have a lot of stress right now but to be honest I always have stress to deal with so I woke up this morning and decided to try once again.
Please wish me luck and keep me in your thoughts.
My last cigarette was at 7:45 this morning.
