Celebrating Small Wins

Do you know what are we doing today?   Guys do you know what are we doing today?!  We are celebrating small wins!  I had a small win yesterday. It was actually a big win for me because it took time, dedication and self-control to achieve this and I am very proud of myself for doing this.  Yesterday it has been a year since I quit smoking. I have not had a cigarette for 365 days. Yes, I know it’s a nasty habit I didn’t need to begin with but it is what it is. I started to smoke when I was 16 and now I am 24 years old and one year smoking free.  If you just had to re-read the fact that I started smoking when I was 16, don’t judge. I can’t believe I am saying this, but it is very normal for Croatia to have kids experimenting with smoking since they are 15. But that’s not important now.  I stopped smoking and I am proud of myself. I tried to kick the habit several times and I actually did it now and I just wanted to share it with you.  So let me know, what was your small win lately? What do you feel proud of achieving?   Can’t wait to read your comments!  Sending love and positive vibes,  Luna

Coffee Date with Luna: Handling emotions

Hello and welcome to another Coffee Date with Luna! Today I decided to speak about something very close to my heart which is dealing with emotions and stress. I suck at it. From a young age I didn’t know how to handle my emotions and I understand that my upbringing in domestic violence took its […]

Poem #179

I guess I am my father’s daughter. Finding any excuse to fall into my old habits One hand on the bottle, smoke coming from the other. Always having an explanation for my wrongdoings. I never let happiness linger in the room, I smash the walls to let it out. I thought it was the poet […]

Poem #98

She just sat there and smoked her cigarette There’s a heavy crown on her head but she refuses to take it off for any man. He was across the room and her heart was jumping right out of her chest. She wanted to drop everything, walk to his table and tell him how much he […]

Poem #73

On that cold winter night her breath resembled smoke coming out of her mouth and it got you to a new level of feeling because it reminded you of the night she smoked a cigarette after burning up between your fingers. It was all experienced before but it all felt so new. Like a boy […]

Poem #51

If you quit smoking lighting up just one more cigarette will lead you to smoking a whole pack a day. If you stopped drinking, just more shot will bring you to the bottom of the bottle. Bad habits have a way of pulling us in, swallowing us whole and making us their slaves who always […]

Cigarettes

Like this cigarette, you are my vice and even though you poisoned me you made me feel alive. Like a cigarette I burned out. Your arrival will be the fire – come here and light me up. Like a cigarette I wrote this little piece for a certain person a while ago and I remembered […]
