Around two weeks ago, I decided that I should quit smoking. Many have their own reasons; mine was for healthier living. I noticed I was getting shorter breaths during my runs. I used to run 4km without a sweat (metaphorically) and still had enough energy to run 2km more. However, it was getting so bad that I was struggling to complete 3km, and that’s when I decided to quit smoking.
I’ve tried quitting it in the past, but I did it without thinking and went back to smoking as a consequence of that. This time around, I’ve had some help from an app, so hopefully, I can see this through the end.
I started smoking because of family issues. It affected me so much that I thought that smoking was a way to help deal with the stress. It obviously made my life a bit worse with weaker lungs. So here’s me trying to improve myself.
It’s been three days since I’ve quit smoking. Wish me luck!
In other news, I finished my TEFL certification course! I’m totally excited to get my certificate and add this to my resume. Why? A TEFL certificate and some years of teaching experience should give me a better chance at finding a teaching job overseas.
Here’s to me trying to make it in life 🍻 🍻 🍻
(PS I don’t drink. I just thought that the beers looked festive lol)
