…And I’m not talking about the human kind!! February 3, 2016 at 3:00pm, I had my last cigarette EVER! I was a smoker for 15 YEARS, which is literally HALF my life being that I’m only 30 years old! I have an app keeping track on my phone of my stats since I’ve quit, and over the last two months I’ve saved myself nearly $500, added 364 hours back to my life, and DIDN’T smoke 1,100 cigarettes! Those numbers are STAGGERING. Seriously, my sense of smell is outrageous nowadays and I don’t get winded nearly as easily. My lungs feel healthy and strong, and it’s wild to be able to navigate different situations and go through my day uninterrupted by smoke breaks. Not to mention, I don’t stink anymore!
I didn’t do it alone though. I was a little leery to attempt to quit because its so easy to backslide back into it and get discouraged. I got in touch with Rick from Breathe Therapy and told him I needed support, and he was happy to help! Basically how it works is the technician performs a few laser treatments on different nerve endings on your body, curbing your withdrawal symptoms. This method to date has an 80% success rate, and I’m happy to say that so far I’m on the right side of that statistic!
We had Rick in on the Morning Show to chat about the process, my story and more! If you missed it, check it out here:
