The best 8 Quit Smoking Blogs for 2016 have been chosen and like last year, I am one of them. My little blog won again and is mentioned by Healthline and I feel very, very humbled. This is more than just an award for blogging, this is real and outside of WordPress.
The Happy Quitter
This inspiring blogger not only talks the talk (well, writes the write), but she’s already walked the walk of giving up the unhealthy habit — after 35 years of smoking.
The Happy Quitter is a great resource for anyone looking to quit smoking, with posts on the latest news and smoking cessation trends, but it’s not all tobacco-related. From political jokes to reflections on life, this is a good place to go if you’re in the mood for something surprising.
Two years ago on May 2nd, I started this blog. I was three months smoke-free when I posted my first post. I had so many questions on my mind and I was searching for answers. Writing worked like a therapy session, it was just me and the keyboard and nobody else was listening -so I thought. Writing kept the people around me safe and it kept me sane.
Giving up an addiction like smoking is not that easy BUT it’s not as hard as they make us believe it will be.
Every week, when I look at my status, I see that my very first posts, the ones that I wrote right after I quit, are being read again and again by people who just quit, or want to quit in the near future. That means the world to me. I wanted to pay it forward and the way it looks like I accomplished that.
I will continue to write about smoking and the quitting process because there is so much new research that is hardly mentioned here in the U.S.
Thank you guys for the award. It’s an honor!
