I have been FREE from tobacco for over 2 years now. It has been a relentless adventure that I continue today. It is a road that will never end. Like anything, it has its peaks and valleys. In the beginning there was adversity at every turn. In time those points of challenge have begun to space out, but remain.
I was a slave to tobacco. I have since been set free, and I determine how I live my life. A chemical does not govern me. An internal battle will rage on, but I have a will to fight. Persistent attacks from a faceless enemy is tiring. I constantly arm myself with weapons to defeat this insurgency.
- Mentors and people of influence
- Countless pieces of gum & toothpicks
- Time in nature
- Water / mineral water / carbonated water
- The list goes on…
Addiction impacts each of us. Our minds are geared to rationalize consumption to create comfort. We do not experience growth if we do not resist this comfortability and allow stress to strengthen us. Forming a vigilant mindset is essential to obtain victory over self-doubt and sabotage.
Every day I’m in search of resources that I can add to my armory. I seek to strengthen my subconscious and use these tools to fight off temptation and the cunningness of the enemy.
Amor up and stay vigilant!
