I know that not too many people read this but I just wanted to put this out there ok?
I was a smoker for 20 years ( wow - hard to even write that!) and I quit over x-mas.
Someone I love very very much asked me to quit. It was, for me, more than enough of a reason to quit. So I quit, no help, no questions, no band aid. I just stopped.
So today I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned, which was something I was very much looking forward to because after a month a non-smoking me realized how awful my teeth and mouth had become from years of smoking.
I can safely say I asked the dentist here “how bad was it” and told them how I had smoked heavily for so long.
The response was shocking. My dentist said ” I won’t lie, it was pretty bad”
Now I have clean teeth and at least a shot at maintaining some dental health.
WHY AM I OVER-SHARING?????????????????????????????
This is LAME and PROBABLY NOT COOL TO SAY BUT-
IF YOU ARE A SMOKER, AND YOU ARE ON THE FENCE ABOUT IT and YOU WANT TO QUIT- JUST KNOW THIS…..I DID IT, and I AM A WHINING CRY-BABY AND I DID IT-
and just know this- YOU CAN DO IT TOO- IF I CAN DO IT YOU CAN!!!
and if you are happy smoking no problem, I get it.
I AM HAPPY I MADE THIS CHANGE, I MISS SMOKING SURE BUT STAYING HAPPY AND HEALTHY IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT-
ANYWAY- Sorry for the heavy message….
