Today’s challenge is to talk about trying to quit something, did we go cold turkey, a gradual slow down, or did it stick at all.
Me personally I have a few vices I should kick. The first is smoking, I’ve managed to quit before but only for a few months, then one night out, someone offers me a smoke and I’m back smoking again in no time.
The next one is drinking. Now I have always been a big drinker, I started drinking when I had just started high school, just a couple of bottles here and there that I would sneak out, then When I was old enough I started frequenting the pubs almost every night. It never really helped working in the drinks industry from when I left school, and I still work in the industry, but now in the distribution sector instead of the bar trade.
Neither of these things are not great for me, already being a badly controlled diabetic,
Now I still smoke (although not as much) and I am still drinking, but in moderation know maybe once, twice a week. I am a firm believer in the fact that unless you are 100% ready to quit, there is no point trying, there are to many temptations to lead you back, you have to really be in the mind set to do it.
Besides No one likes a quitter.
