Quitting Smoking For a Second Time

Okay, let’s give this another go. I successfully did it once, so surely I can do it again. Are you a smoker who has quit, or been pondering the idea of quitting?

Let’s start by saying that I’m dumb for starting to smoke again. A couple of years ago, I managed to quit smoking. How did I do it? I Took the route of vaping, as going cold turkey wasn’t something that would work for me. So I started vaping and honestly, I didn’t really like it, but that was okay because the idea is to stop altogether at some point right?

I ended up vaping for roughly six months before I grew tired of it, and I decided to stop that as well. I went roughly two months without any nicotine, and then it all came crumblin’ down as John Mellencamp said. I ended up at a summer holiday celebration where there was beer flowing and people smoking right in my face, and I’m sure you can imagine what ended up happening. As you guessed, I smoked one, two, then three, and so on. Two days later I purchased a pack and was back to smoking.

Now, I have made the decision to kick the habit once again. Honestly, I planned to do this months ago and never did it. I actually purchased a JUUL and everything. This week I decided to start using the JUUL to get myself off cigarettes for good. I’ve done it once so I know I can do it again. Will it be easy? Not in the least bit, but it has to be done.

I hate the fact that I started smoking again, and I’m confident that I can kick the habit for good. Have you ever tried to quit smoking? It’s not an easy task, but it can be done. Please share your experiences.
