Hello! I am April Heather,
With this blog, I revisit lessons I learned through quitting smoking. I apply them to exercising, keeping house, work, leadership, etc...
I write about courage, fear, anxiety, capability, apathy, ambition, antagonism, motivation, and whatever else gets us worked up. My blog posts are about keeping the focus through manners, dropping the competition, and success through NON-motivation techniques. (yep, I said that.)
I’m married with two grown children and on my next adventure. One of my new goals is learning how to run after a lifetime of hating it and avoiding it at all costs. Do I dare entertain the thought of running a marathon?
There are misconceptions that quitting smoking starts with the quit date. It doesn't. Quitting starts right now, with no quit date in sight. It could be a long time before smoking cessation actually happens.
It is important to start before your Real Quit Date to work through all the misconceptions. i.e. Former smokers live a wounded life without thier smokes. Quitting puts you in an elite group of snobs who whimper and whine, cough and sneeze, then run away squealing, "That stinks!"
All not true.
Quit with the misnomer that whatever makes you stomp off to go smoke are excuses to prevent you from quitting right now. Nothing is more distracting from quitting smoking than labeling it an excuse so you can ignore it.
Besides, isn't "labeling it an excuse to ignore it" the definition of procrastination?
BTW. Who told them that your "excuses" aren't real?
