Being Sober

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)

  1. I hope you can totall quit smoking. I’m not a smoker but I heard it is really hard. But try to lessen it until you can already live without it. You can do it! Many smokers stopped already and you can do it too. ☺️👍🏼
