Quitting Smoking - How Hard Can It Be ... ?
I've been thinking more and more about quitting, mainly because I recently had to register recently with a new doctor and I had to suffer the third degree about my smoking.
I was asked an interesting question: not "Why don't you quit?" but, instead, "Why do you actually smoke?"
Well, gee, I had to think about that. After a bit of self-analysis I came up with this... I smoke because:
I enjoy it;
It relieves boredom;
I don't think I can quit;
I don't think I want to quit.
I know for a fact that cold turkey will not work for me (it doesn't work for most people) So, I'm taking these excuses one at a time.
I'll continue another day, because I need a fag right now.
