I will quit smoking Cigarettes if I can raise the amount required. I currently smoke between 1-2 packs of Cigarettes every 24 hours.
I am a single mom of one little boy aged two. This is going to be used to give us a fresh and healthy start somewhere new. Away from Domestic Violence, Emotional and Mental Abuse, and barely surviving. It's a very hard cycle nearly impossible to break without the help of 'angels'.
Be the angels we need....
I have been through so much in my life, and to still be alive and say I survived what should of killed me several times over is a miracle in itself. I have a healthy beautiful little boy, he saved my life. But now I'm still drowning with the wrongs of my past. I am so far in over my head and there is nothing I can do. What I earn a week doesn't even cover the debt payments I owe, I can't afford rent for a place to live, and I can't afford anymore than the basics to survive. Smoking helps me cope because I have no idea what to do without sacrificing precious time with my son or raising him. I have been saddled with debt that was incurred during a relationship that was not my own, but was in my name. Yes, I made wrong decisions and bad judgement in the past but I am so much stronger, wiser and more aware of these types of people now. I have battled depression, anxiety, suicide attempts, domestic violence, mental and emotional abuse, eating disorders plus so much more, and that is what my life was about. I have no way of getting ahead in life, the debt racked up under my name is not disappearing, and I have no way of ever getting ahead. My whole life is about paying debt and struggling to give my son his needs. Smoking stops me from completely falling apart.
I am well educated and previously a successful business owner, that was all taken from me when I went through the darkest period of my life, at the hands of a narcissist.
I need a fresh start in a new place away for us to have a better future, and more opportunities. At this rate, even in my 60's I will still be in debt and repaying it. I will have no quality of life, struggling and never being able to afford a place to live. I want to be able to provide a safe, healthy and stable environment for my son to grow up in and give him the best possible chance at life.
By raising this money, I will quit smoking permanently, cold turkey. I will be able to clear all debt in my name in full. Move away from the town in which my abuser lives. Get a safe, stable and healthy place for us to live. Give me a second chance in life, without having to struggle for my entire life.
I am the first person to drop everything to help another person, or give someone food if they are hungry, I always volunteer and help out. Because caring about others is what makes life worth living.
