Day 36 My Journey to end the madness of addiction to cigarettes
I am reminded today how I used to remind myself and others that I knew people who had smoked all their lives with no ill effects from smoking. Now that I am 36 days into this I can see what a load of crap this thinking is. There is not such a person that can smoke cigarettes and not have any effects from doing so.
Smoking in itself is a habit that kills everyone who does it. Sometimes the effects may not be felt or even seen, but they are there. To think that just because my grandpa or anyone else for that matter did die from Lung Cancer in no way means that what he did die from did not come from smoking.
Today I am thankful that I have walked away from what was controlling every aspect of my life: SMOKING is and never has been, nor ever will be GOOD for our bodies. I told myself this lie for 30 years. Now that I can actually breathe again, I can have hope that the next 30 years of my life will be spent in freedom.
