Beginning Your Journey

Icon_tip_1

Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking. This is the first day of a journey toward improving your health. More than half of all people who have ever smoked are non-smokers today, so you are not alone.

Over the next 30 days, you can expect to:

  • Become aware of the situations and events that act as triggers for your smoking.
  • Learn new habits and break old ones.
  • Enjoy a life free of the feeling of being tied down by your need to smoke.


The first day of quitting smoking isn’t just a literal day, it’s also a state of mind. Any time that you decide that you want to be done as a smoker, you are at a beginning point of possibility. Whether it’s your first attempt to quit or your hundredth, you have an opportunity to re-create a newer, improved version of the “old” you. You’ll still be the same person you have always been, only with the pride that comes from knowing you achieved something great.

DID YOU KNOW? According to the American Lung Association, smoking rates have declined steadily over the past four decades, with less than 20% of adults smoking today.

The world is embracing the healthier smoke-free lifestyle, making it easier than ever to be a non-smoker. Many restaurants, bars and even entire cities in the U.S. are passing non-smoking ordinances. You’ll feel good knowing that you can still enjoy these social environments, without feeling like you’re a slave to nicotine.

Topic: Pregnant at 52 after reunion love spell
Testimony:
-My marriage was falling almost dead due to a bit argument, depression, feelingless and numbed attitudes of my Hubby, he preferred being silent so as to hurt me.
-Although there’re days he has been fine and good to me, we cook, eat and do things together, but we still like stepping on a dozen of eggs, we were not at ease as like before when our marriage was still in an excellent shape. Most times after saying some hurtful words to me like; I cannot bear his children anymore cos of my age. He says sorry and apologize cos he knows that he’s acting passive, numbed and feelingless to me and frustration hits him back again and again.
-I truly love my Hubby and feels guilty of our misfortune, I have always wanted to trace back my wrongs and make some amendments so we can live as a happy family with our children by our side. I was tired of seeing him hurt inside.
-He eventually served me with a divorce letter after 18 years of our blessed marriage. His reason was that we could never work things out together again, I couldn’t bear his children, shutting him off to be involved in my life and affairs, he feels numbed when he thinks of those circumstances.
-I was deeply hurt before consulting Dr. Wakina Love Temple, even though I tried day by day to adjust to the woman of his choice but he didn’t see my efforts.
-At the end, I was put in a better position with my Hubby by Dr. Wakina love spell via his email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. I’m 7 months pregnant already at 52. It’s a magical work of Dr. Wakina that restored our dream.

THE MIGHTY SPELL CASTER THAT HELPED ME SOLVED MY URGENT CRITICAL RELATIONSHIP PROBLEM.
I dont know how to really thank Dr. Keke Odin for what he did for me. My Name is Anita Kelly from Los Angeles, i was dating this man who i loved very much for over four years now without any problem in our relationship. so at a point he changed so suddenly after returning from the office and started behaving so strangely. it even got to the extent that he told me it was over and i should never call him again. This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR KEKE ODIN, the chief priest of all spell caster.a At first sight this man told me all my problems that it was his secretary that used a charm on him. Dr KEKE ODIN told me not to worry that he will help me solve the problem. The following day, i was in the house in a sober mood when i first received a message from my boyfriend that he was very sorry and before i dropped the phone, he called me again to say he is on his way home and that he was truly sorry for everything. To my greatest surprise, one week later he engaged me and we got married. All Thanks to KEKE ODIN. You can contact him through the following means

My husband encouraged us to come out of our shell and tell the world about the man behind the medicine that brought us back together after 7 years of separation. He was so astonished by the amazing spell by Dr. Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) that reunited our undying love for each other that proved we are sole mate. There has been a barrier between us, we regularly disagrees with each other, argue over unnecessary things and fight almost every week when we were still unmarried. We eventually separated for some months due unsolvable issues before he moved to Italy for 4 years.
Though it might sound impossible to still get hold of your crush for that period of time without any means of communication. I always felt he took my heart away with him because I could not fall in love again and I could not stop thinking about him but I can not be with him. Doc Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) proved that nothing relating to love issues is impossible for him; doctor also proved that true love does not die after broking the barriers between us. Days after the spell, he returned unexpectedly to take me along with him. My happiest moment is seeing us live happily for a year without issues before getting married. We are still astonished by the good spiritual work that brought us together forever.

I have been married for 4 years to a man that derives pleasure from bullying a lady for silly reasons. He was a loving husband at the early stage of our marriage. I was restricted from so many thing as his wife, I must serve his dinner at a particular time every day or I get beaten like a drum, I don’t talk whenever he is talking, he banned me from going to any party or visiting my friends or family. I told my Mother if she can help me escape from the horrible jail I was into, it was becoming too much to handle, but she advised me to be defensive and pick a weapon whenever we’re fighting, which I tried but he broke my head and I was hospitalized for 3 weeks.
I got used to his mysterious behavior and I learn how to leave with it until the torture graduated to another level from beating the hell out of me to raping me every day he return drunk, he beats me and tie me up and rape me. It happen repeatedly for weeks until he threatens to cutoff my neck with a knife any day I resist. It was too much on me, I don’t want to be murdered by my beast husband and I don’t want to divorce.
This is a real life story, I never gave up on my marriage until I met Dr. Wakina through a friend whom he has helped. I didn’t know how he cast the spell after the details I provided, but the spell worked perfectly, my husband came back to his original senses and apologized to me and my family with tears running like a stream. It’s all over, he has total changed to a loving and caring husband.
I highly recommend Dr. Wakina, you can contact him for help via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

"...Many restaurants, bars and even entire cities in the U.S. are passing non-smoking ordinances. You’ll feel good knowing that you can still enjoy these social environments, without feeling like you’re a slave to nicotine."

-- Even when I quit smoking I will not go to social environments that are prejudice against smokers. What causes people to think they have a right to condemn others? I do not wish to be around people that cannot separate the habit from the human.

I've been smoking from 20- 21 years my first cigarette it was when I was in a group home I start it was 1 pack a few weeks started buying more and more packs of cigarettes 2 I started being a heavy smoker. I didn't realize that I had a bad habit everyone telling me was too much
My fathers friend past away a few years ago from lung cancer due to smoking cigarettes.
Few years ago I try quit smoking with the nicotine gum plus the gum tasted nasty so I quit using the nicotine gum. so I decide quit smoking this year
-----------------------------------------------

Well, I'm 17 hrs into not having a smoke...doing good so far, I've got great people at work supporting me and a wonderful husband who supports me as well. I had recently quit for 1 year and 3 months and then with the stress of my impending wedding I picked the habit right back up like I'd never stopped. I've been back smoking now for 3 months and am ready to lay them down again for good. And hopefully this time not gain 50 lbs. Good luck to everyone !

I have smoked most of my life but have justified it because I only smoked 1-2 a day. The past 2 years I smoked more and more. So I begam weening myself - went from Marlboro Reds to Lights to Ultra Lights and today I smoke a natural brand. Each tiny step has given me the courage to quit for good. I am ready to do this. I am suppose to quit in the 30 days not have already quit to start this?

I just believed that if you want change then it will happen because you are the one doing it.Smoking is one of the habits people can't avoid immediately.They are bound into something that they can't escape.If they only knew the effects of it and how hazardous it is to human health,then they will realize that they should quit from it.If you are going to research/study about the effects of smoking,it actually causes destruction to the health of the people.Most people put losing weight down as theirs – but you can actually do that and be saving money at the same time.If you want to have a healthy body then you should work for it and avoid those things that will ruin your health.If you will quit smoking then you could not only get in shape,you will have a healthy life style as well, but save a small payday loans worth per year.

Morning of Day 1:
Took my pill, patch in place, chewing a pin and thus it begins. I know that one of my triggers is drinking coffee and another is talking on the cell phone and I think everyone likes to smoke when they have a drink. Luckily, I rarely have a drink, but the coffee and cell phone are going to be real tests. I am using the theory that if I don't buy any, I will won't smoke. You can't smoke what you don't have. Well here I go.

RubyFaye

I'm very aware of the social change in acceptance of this habit of smoking. It actually brings a lot of shame with it. That's what originally drew me to the compulsion to quit.

I'm an expert on quitting, just not staying quit. I think 'they' call me a 'serial quitter'.

I'm looking forward to this new resource to help me on this journey!

handleydarrell

I spend a lot of time thinking about quitting smoking but I don't take any action. I know all of the benefits for quitting but I can't seem to get jump-started. This creates additional stress and anxiety in my life.
I hopeful that the first30 days can provide me with the motivation I need to take action.
