It's been 2 years TODAY

On January 23, 2012, after being a shitty smoker for over 17 years, after trying every stupid pill, patch or gum I could get my tobacco-stained hands on, I went to Imagine Laserworks and got the laser treatment to quit smoking. I made a promise to my wife before we got married that she wouldn't be marrying a smoker, and it was the best promise I ever made in my life. On a side note, I just want to point out that if you ever expect people to take you seriously, on any level, you've got to stick to your word. At the end of the day, if you can't keep your word, what good are you? Sorry, had to say it. Anyways, I smoked cigarettes for over 17 years, and for roughly the last 5 of those years I was smoking more than a pack a day, sometimes close to 2 packs. I think about that now and it makes me want to punch myself so hard, you don't even know. I hated being a smoker for such a long time, but I was a poster-child of a hopeless addict. If I didn't have a smoke within about 2 hours (maximum, usually only waiting 2 hours when I was at work and had no choice) I'd get that "broken glass in my veins" feeling and want to punch everyone and everything in sight. It started out innocently enough, just like with every other stupid kid who starts smoking as a kid, and of course by the time I was sick of it, I couldn't stop. I tried everything I could over the years, and the longest I went was close to 3 months. The thing is though, if you think about logic and the way the human brain works, you can't use a tobacco product to stop using tobacco. That's all that the gums and patches and all that other shit is, they are smokeless tobacco products - which might I ad, most of them are owned by TOBACCO COMPANIES. It's a total sham, but I know from experience, even as a smoker who was desperate to quit, it's pretty hard to tell a hardcore smoker how it is and have them buy into it. That is what nicotine does to your brain, the same as any other addictive substance takes over your priorities, and that is the biggest single issue that makes quitting so hard for most smokers.

I'm not trying to be preachy or anything, honestly I know how it is to be on that side of it. I'm just really proud of myself for finally winning the war, and I am forever greatful to Imagine Laserworks for the miracles the perform. If you're a smoker and you genuinely want to stop, contact a laster treatment center, because all that over the counter stuff you buy in stores or get from your doctor is a huge, steamy pile of horseshit. None of it will ever ever work. You are the only person who can change your life, never forget that and never give up on yourself. If I could do it, anybody can!
