A Letter To My future Self

Hello all its Lucy again, this is my last blog for you so I better make it a good one eh? So I think in this one I will be writing a letter to my future self.

Dear Lucy,

I am so proud of us! We did it! We quit smoking and our family is back together. I know we’ve tried so many times to quit smoking and most of them was to no avail. But the last one was the right one, with the will power of us, the help of our husband and our three beautiful girls I knew we could do it. Continue reading

A Letter To My Husband

Hello everyone, Lucy here again, today’s blog is a letter to my husband. A fair warning it might get a little gushy so if lovey dovey stuff is not for you.. well I would say turn away now but honestly, I hope even if its not for you, you still read this letter with hopes of finding the strength to quit smoking.

My dearest husband,

I want to start off by saying I love you very much. You are my rock when I’m not strong enough to get through some things on my own. You have always been there for me for the last five years and I don’t think I could have accomplished so much without you. But alas I have at least one more favour to ask of you. I need your support and love during my quitting smoking, no matter how crabby I may get I need you to be there and be my rock. Continue reading

A Letter To The Younger Me

Dear little Lucy,

Hey there sweety, you are such a smart girl. I know right now you are feeling like you are so unpopular, not pretty and not smart. I am writing this letter to you to let you know that you ARE beautiful and smart and you will be popular.

Right now you are feeling like your sister is a lot “cooler” than you, prettier than you and smarter than you. I just want to let you know, that she is those things but you are too. You don’t need to compare yourself to anyone. You are a great girl, and you will go far in this world. But you need to know that soon your friends will bug you about doing something that you are not comfortable with. I beg you to not give in. Continue reading

A Letter To My Children

Dear Girls,

Hello my darlings, let me start off by saying I love you all very much. You three are the reasons I get up each day and the reason for my continuous smile. I am writing you this letter not only to let you know how much you all mean to me, but also how I feel about smoking.

I have never denied that smoking is a bad thing to do; even when I was younger I knew it was wrong. But now that I’m older and I see how you all feel when daddy and I smoke it hurts my heart. And I wish that I never started. But now that I have my three beautiful princesses asking me to stop and seeing you cry when I put playing on hold to have a cigarette, makes me know I need to change my ways. Continue reading

Loved Ones React!

Hey everyone Lucy here again. Today is going to be about reactions to my smoking, specifically my family’s reactions and including reactions from my parents, my sisters, my husband, my in-laws, and (the most important reactions to me) my daughters.

My parents found out that I started smoking when I was ten years old. They were so disappointed in me and if I am being honest, I was disappointed in myself and ashamed. I tried to stop right then and there, but I had no self-confidence and I wanted to be liked by my peers. My peers were the whole reason I started smoking in the first place. Now, I see this as the worst mistake I have ever made. Continue reading
