Great American Smokeout
The Annual Great American Smokeout is today. Who are you going to help quit? I got 2 names on my list who are very close to me.....Mom and Dad. I declared it this summer that my goal was by the 1st of the year they will have quit smoking. As you well know, I don't like to fail. And if I have a goal, I will accomplish it. Of course, they must be in on the plan too, which is close to impossible to do. And anytime I bring it up I get the usual, "I know. I don't want to talk about it." I know they've made multiple attempts throughout the years and have not succeeded but this I know, they CAN succeed. The thing is, all they have to say is, "Yes, we want help and support," and they'd have people surrounding them, encouraging them through the process. I can't do it on my own and I can't force them to do it. It must be their choice. I've already researched information through various channels, and it's sitting, waiting to be read. Not waiting to be read by me, but by them. It will continue to sit but will always be ready when they make the decision that they're ready.
