I quit for Krishna.
I am hesitant to post this because I am afraid I will fail. But I feel that by making it known even to those I don't know, I will have more motivation to succeed. Yesterday was the first day in 5 years that I have not had a cigarette. Today so far, I have been able to restrain. It sounds so silly even to me that I feel this is even a big deal or hard to overcome.
I just felt I needed to put it out there.
I've tried so many times to quit, always thinking, well, tomorrow I'll just have one less...but when the day comes that I should only have 2 or 3, the work day seems so long, or my hands are just idle...or, i forget! how convenient! So my husband and I decided that the only way to get this done is to just do it.
I just keep telling myself when I feel the urge or the :boredom: or idle hands that I don't need the cigarette, I need Krishna.
Has anyone else had a similar experience with quitting anything in order to live by the regulative principles?
