Writer's Block: When I Grow Up

Do you ever do anything now that you swore you would never do when you were younger? What is it?


I broke many promises to self at various points in my life in bad relationships. I quit smoking under pressure from an ex, that's one. It ruined my health because I self medicate with my smoking habit and it does relieve some of my symptoms. I had more respiratory problems between asthma and colds and flu during those years than any other time in my adult life since I started smoking -- and that was years later. The promised health benefits never actually happened.

I lost something emotionally in it too.

The point I did quit smoking on the ultimatum of "I'll leave you if you don't" was the point when I stopped standing up for myself on anything in that relationship. I gave up on life. So even if I cut way back, as I do sometimes, I am not going to "quit" as such and go around saying smoking is evil and complain about it when other people do.
