I can tell one thing. If you quit smoking – you can do anything in life.
Quitting smoking was the hardest thing I have done in my life.
After one month of non smoking I bought a guitar for myself.
This will be my third guitar, two I have sold before and I’m now waiting until it arrives, bought it yesterday.
When quitting smoking you have to give your self cool stuff. Also I quit drinking. Month sober.
I was not addicted to alcohol, tough. But I was addicted to smoking.
I’m addicted to sugar, to coffee and I’m lazy and fat, but I might change it.
Changing one’s lifestyle is really hard because the change has to permanent. It’s easy to change lifestyle for one day but making the lifestyle change to stick is like really hard.
But hard things are worth doing because it builds character – I have to admit, all of my life I was looking for an easy way but when you do easy things, man everybody can do an easy thing.
Starting smoking is easy, quitting is hard. Starting drinking is easy, quitting is hard.
If you have a social circle, like I used to have, and you drink in that circle then it’s better to be alone than being in that social circle which is toxic.
I’m not saying anything bad about toxic people but self destructive behavior attracts other people who are self destructive.
And before making a change and going to the gym, you’d better quit smoking, quit drinking – because this is the fundamental step, you don’t want a muscular body which is rotten in the inside, do you?
Sleeping all day long is easy, that’s why I do it. But I always keep thinking about changing it. Consuming is easy, producing is hard.
Life isn’t going to change by itself or maybe it will – who knows.
If people asked me for advice, I would say don’t smoke for a day and repeat that day for until you’re old. When the right day comes quitting smoking is going to happen by itself but when it happens you’ll have to guide yourself not to fall in the same trap again.
Over my years of living in this matrix, I realized it’s hard to unlearn and undo and unthink the stuff you already know – unknowing is hard but it’s not impossible.
For people who never smoked I would say – don’t start and you won’t have any problems. Quitting smoking builds character – I can tell it for sure.
Have a good life. Čiao
