Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right community and I'm sorry if it's not, but I need some motivational words or stories from you guys to quit smoking. I've been smoking for about 3 years when I started college. The reason I started was because of stress and anxiety after a bad breakup and being so far from home for the first time, so now my trigger is stressful situations. It's also an outlet for my self destructing impulse as unhealthy coping mechanism (quoting my therapist).
However, I feel like I want to quit after dating this incredible girl who loves and cares for me unconditionally. She helps me love myself more and want to take care of myself better. Quitting smoking is probably the first and most important part of the self care plan. I haven't smoked for about 3 months but I'm going back to college soon and I fear that it's going to trigger my smoking again.
If you have your own stories about how you/your loved ones quit smoking, please share with me. I know I can do it, it's just been rough.
