I don’t know that anyone else has quite as hard of a time as I do when it comes to changing for the better.
Over the last two years I have really wanted to quit smoking. I’ve done impressively well lately. Down to one smoke a day. But never have I ever gone a FULL day without a single smoke. Not since I was 18.
It’s been a long uphill battle, but I think today is the day.
Now this isn’t the only thing I have struggled with since transitioning from teenager to adult. I have always desired a healthy life; walks at night, yoga in the morning, drinking tea instead of coffee… the usual. I genuinely feel the inability to quit smoking – the constant and daily reminder that I have an unhealthy habit – really made me feel defeated. I felt so defeated that I made excuse after excuse to not go to the gym regularly or eat properly.
It was my crutch.
Now with letting smoking be a part of my past I hope to inspire myself to push harder and deal with the difficult. I want to at a minimum exercise for 30 mins daily. I work at a desk all day so even just 30 mins of yoga could make a huge improvement.
