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.
On the last month of 2017.12.X I got disconnected from my mobile phone signal provider. It made me pissed, I had like 7€ prepaid on it. And they simply disconnected me.
What happened when I stopped using the phone?
People just weren’t able to connect with me. At that time I had Facebook but people just didn’t bother to find me on Facebook.
It’s very easy to find me online, just google my name and you’ll find me and my contacts.
Everybody is using the web, name a person who doesn’t use a web, besides I had a landline phone all the time.
The real reason you have no friends is not because they can’t connect with you but because they won’t bother to connect with you…
Everybody using a google android phone has email…, everybody on facebook has email, everybody on youtube has email, but then again why not use email?
Email is instant just like facebook and etc.
So after spending half of a year without a phone I can tell you one huge benefit.
You don’t miss out on anything.
People don’t bother you with dull and nonsense tasks.
Peace of mind.
If you’re not making sales with a phone, you don’t need a phone, unless you’re this social guy whos like everywhere doing meetups and shit.
But for guys like me who spend 24/7 on the web there simply is no need for the phone.
Besides all social networks are anti-social because you just sit at home and watch your screen.
If your social circle is made out of alcoholics, drug users and smokers the best thing you can do is unplug and you’ll be forgotten.
I started using a phone due to one thing, I could not make a payment to one man via bank, because the bank kept asking me for sms code, so I bought the SIM card, now I also started blogging so I use two step verification on my blog and my google account – don’t want this shit to be stolen and deleted.
But my phone is not ringing all day, it just sits silent on my desk, maybe once a week I get a call.
