Keeping This New Year Resolution to Stay Smoke-Free

Here we are again. I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by! Things are great. I am single again but happy! I am healthy; have a fantastic group of girlfriends (me? YES), the most amazing parents, and a celeb dog; I’m making changes in this world one day at a time; and I have a brand new home! It is almost the New Year and a time to continue to make good changes, reset my battery and shed unwanted people, things, and bad habits from my life. I try not to wait until the New Year to rid myself of the less desirable things I have picked up along the way, but it happens. We all have bad habits. It could be a dud boyfriend (I have had MANY), toxic friends (I am still a flytrap for stupid people but working on it), spending too much time on social media (guilty) or drinking too much soda (Diet Coke- still love you but you don’t love my tush or tummy). New Year’s Resolutions come in all different shapes and sizes. They might be small goals (like updating Teddy Brewski on Instagram every single day), but they could be really big too, like going to the gym 5 days a week and drinking my protein shakes religiously, or quitting smoking. That is ok. Anything is possible and what better time than during the holiday to make these changes?

So, what will you do to achieve your New Year Resolution and conquer this “Quit Season”? What is your New Year Resolution? Well, we all know I took September to make it my SELFtember. I gave myself a gift to get happy, healthy, fit and celebrate conquering my goal of putting down the cigarettes and putting on an itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini so I could ride my big yellow duck into the New Year. It was and has not been easy.

    I want to quit smoking for my little girl. She is the best part of my life and I don’t want her to grow up without her. Also don’t want her thinking smoking was more important than her.

    I am finally going to get back to my college weight ????

    I want to be a good role model for my children. I want to eat better and have healthy habits so my children will follow in my footsteps

  6. Janine January 28, 2017 at 12:11 pm #

    I’m going to show more kindness towards everyone and be an example to my children but also to other people. I believe that’s something that’s contagious.

    I have attempted to quit on many occasions without success. I tried quitting cold turkey, I’ve tried the patches but my skin broke out in little bumps and itched like crazy. I have smoked since I was around twelve years old and I am turning 38 in a few days. I would love to actually get this disgusting habit behind me and live a much healthier life and be around much longer for my children and grandchildren.

    I want to conquer caffeine. I know it’s not good for me, helps me retain water, and keeps me up late. I would have better overall health!
