The Day 8 Myth

Today is day 8 for those who resolved to #QuitSmoking on New Year’s Day. It is being said on the Twitter Sphere and the old Fleecebook that today is the toughest day to stick to that resolution.

Balderdash, nonsense, and piffle!

If you have not had a cigarette for the past eight days, here’s the good news.


Any suggestions otherwise are the last dying bursts of psychological shrapnel from the Nicotine Brigade, as they finally leave your system forever. The only way they will win is if you re-inforce their troops by lighting another cigarette. But why would you? They are crawling on the floor, on their way out, finished, done, beaten. And guess who did that?

You. You wonderful, amazing, terrific quitter you!!

Breathe in for three seconds. Hold for three, and think of how you are going to spend that money. Breathe out for three, and relax.

Day 8? Who’s counting?
