For years I tried to give up the nasty habit. My efforts never lasted because I wasn’t truly ready until I became passionate about health and fitness. Now I can honestly say I am finally a non smoker.
Many times I tried to quit and failed, but this time I was finally ready. Much like the many failed diets I attempted prior to losing 175 pounds, my attempts before were short lived and I was quickly back to my old ways. What finally made me quit? Many of the reasons I will list in this post were motivations to finally quit, but when I decided to become a personal trainer I could no longer make excuses to keep smoking. As a CPT my job is to inspire a healthy lifestyle, and under no circumstances could I expect to be taken seriously as a smoker. So, I finally quit. Cold turkey.
