The No Smoking Train... First Station Reached

in Natural Medicine2 months ago (edited)

Good afternoon, fellow Bees of the Hive! 🐝

Recently I've decided to quit the very unhealthy habit of smoking. Starting was the most difficult thing so far... keep on going without a cigar has been easier than I had anticipated, to say the truth. It was much more difficult to say "no" on day one than on any of the following days. 😉

I have to admit that, on the very next day I felt tempted to go out and buy a pack of cigars... but I stayed strong and avoided the kiosk. 🤭

I have reached what I consider the first real achievement in this process: one full month without a smoke. That mark was last Sunday. Let's see how longer I can go... right now, I don't feel any urge to go back, even after the stressing days we had in these bloody Crypto Markets, where Elon "The Troll" Musk keeps making us suffer with his moronic but highly influential Twitts. Many people follow him blindly and thrown themselves of a cliff, just because he says this or that. 🤡

Now that I can go out, travel and take photos without having to stop down to take a puff, I'll feel a lot more free... There were some times where I missed a good photo opportunity because I was smoking, instead of being ready to press the trigger. (Now... if only the pandemic went away.)

I feel like I should keep myself focused and hold on to this task, which will not only be good for my health but also for my wallet. 🤗

That's all I wanted to share today... see you tomorrow.



Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 57 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

All Elons fans can go smoke his pole while we enjoy our peace of mind lol

Ahahah! A single guy shouldn't have so much influence over the markets. That only shows how little this bubble is. 🤭

I've this problem. Tried so many times but couldn't get over it.

Do you smoke much? I was between 3 and 7 cigars a day... 🤪

Congrats on quitting smoking!
I never was a user of tobacco, but I did used to smoke cannabis all of the time. Luckily I was able to quit that habit and instead choose to use edibles. I love the effects say more and there is no smoke involved.
Keep it up! I believe in you to stop smoking for good.

Yeah, one month gone already. People say that is the hardest. 😉
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Good for you! You will need a bigger wallet now.

Ahahahah. It seems that way. 😁

Excellent! congratulations! Don't let anyone (least of all Elon😋 ) keep you from your goal.

Eehheh! I'm trying, I'm trying! 😉
Thanks for your support!

Congratulations ! Me too fighting with this habit and you motivated me also so from now i will not smoke again. Thank you for that post !

I hope you can do it... the main trick is to not buy them. Then you can't smoke what you don't have! 😁

already stopped smoking since 2014 :)

Wow, congratulations! What was the most difficult thing for you in that process? Any tips you want to share?

That's the spirit! Good luck on the cigar free journey!

Thanks a lot! 😁

Yay! 🤗

Way to go, mate. I grow up in a family made out of smokers, I am the only one who didn't start at all.

Well, I considered that... but in the end I decided to go cold turkey. So far, so good. 😅

I have not smoked any cigarette in my life, but many people smoked and smoke around me, so I kind of like a "passive smoker", yet I still do not like cigarettes. I will not smoke in the future either. By the way, I am relatively young. I will be 29 years old on 2021.09.17.

Yeah, cigarettes are dumb... but a good weed, hmmm... that's so tasty! 😁
