I was a smoker, 25 cigs a day and I quit it cold turkey 5 years ago.
I didn’t go to classes often and when I go, I am a back bencher and it looked like I will not graduate from IIT, but that turned around in my final year, graduated with the class top 3 rank in my final semester with a sgpa of 8.76/10.
I was diagnosed with anxiety few years ago, I tried hard to get over it, received help even and I am out of it.
My life was always full of flirtings, romances with women, spent a decade chasing them, stopped all of it few months ago.
I had so many accounts in dating sites, apps to find sexual partners, apps to find girls for sextings etc, removed all of them few months ago.
So the final straw was quitting PMO, I was doing it multiple times a day since 9 years and I did quit 85 days ago…
So… No bad habits, no girls, better in studies, no apps to meet women online… Left with, few close friends, tv series for fun, studying for jobs, working out to cut down my weight, helping parents, thats it. Thats my life. I have clear conscience, no guilt, no secrets, happy with myself, loving the way I am, enjoying all the time I have for myself.
As I am 28 years old now, may be after year or so, when I am over everything, may be find a nice girl and get married?
I have been through another addiction but I am not willing to disclose, and I quit it cold turkey too along with cigs. So, if anyone is struggling with any kind of addition, let me know, may be I could be of help.
So guys, although I said so little, It was a roller coaster for me, if I go into more detail, probably I would come out as the weirdest one. There are so many secrets in my life which I can never ever share, yeah they are the worst. I am out of all of it and anyone can… If I tell you that I never experienced happiness for 4 years, would you believe it? So, no matter what your situation is, what you are experiencing, no matter how bad or worse it is, never give up hope. Its gonna take time, patience is needed, but one or the other day, you are going to live your life exactly the way you want. Picture yourself the way you want your life to be, how you want yourself to be and work towards it. Step by step… One day at a time. Keep dreaming… And remember, You are the author of your own story.
