Here’s the thing I like about smokers they can be the most optimistic people around. That I like but I prefer people who are realistic about that optimism.
Of course you want to stop smoking and I know this to be true of every smoker. The reasons are complicated but I can know this from 2 questions which I have asked hundreds of smokers over the years and have always and I mean always got the same response.
You want to quit smoking once and for all but just before you do here’s a list of statements you will have said or will say into the future.
So you have decided that you do want to stop smoking but not until after….
The Stag/Hen night
The World Cup
The New Year
I have moved house
When I’m 20,21, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65,
When the kids behave themselves
When my sisters husband gets his act together
When my friend/partner/relation/daughter does it with me
When I have/don’t have the money
Fill out your reason’s here ______________
So you see there will always be a excuse for not stopping smoking, or there will be a better time to quit smoking. Yet, there will always be up and coming events in our life. As soon as one is over there will be another and another and another. If you always wait for the next one to be over with before you stop smoking, you will always be waiting to stop. In the early days I used to follow enquires up and I quickly realised that some people love talking about stopping smoking but never get round to it.
I sometimes joke that everyone does stop smoking eventually the wise ones get to have a life before they have to leave this world.
You know that you can’t keep putting it off. If you need extra help or support to stop smoking then seek that help out. Whatever you do don’t wait because statically smoking really is not good news for you or the people around you, but you know that anyway.
