Today's Text Question of the Day could be something super serious like quitting smoking, or it could be super fun like quitting being a bouche.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What is something you gave up doing? And why?

  • Keeping my High School figure. Lost it after I had a kid at 20 and have been trying to find it for 29 years. I GIVE UP!!!! WHY?? I like food too much ‍♀️
  • Dating. I just wasn't meeting the kind of guy I was looking for and after being single for around 10 years now, i figured the odds of finding that guy were just getting slimmer every day so I'm done looking. God/fate/the universe/whatever will just have to basically drop him in my lap at this point lol
  • On June 18 will be 7 years since I have had a drink. I almost lost the job I have had since I was 21. I am 44 now. By far the best decision I have EVER made.
  • Drinking. I don’t have a tolerance for it and it’s expensive.
  • Having my nails done and my hair professionally done to help save money when we were in a tight spot.
  • Sniffing glue... It won’t keep my family together.
  • Smoking so I can live to see my great great grandkids.
  • I gave up drinking on January 27, 2012. My mom passed away in 2010 and took care of my grieving my drinking. The only time I wasn’t drinking was when I was working. In the process of my drinking I had 3 mini strokes with the first one being the worse. After my third one the dr told me that if I didn’t quit drinking I was going to die! Yes I miss my mom immensely but I wasn’t ready to see her! Been sober for 8 years now. Can’t even stand the smell of alcohol!
  • Negative people i my life. They are to toxic. I would rather spread love.

  • Writing, not enough hours in the day for a lot of extras and most of the time when I do get a moment to relax its usually spent doing stuff with my kids
  • Traveling, no money. It all goes to the kids along with all my time.
  • drinking pop. Why? So bad for me. Totally worth it, I feel so much better. LaCroix rocks! ☺️
  • Smoking 3packs(I loved smoking) a day, so I can breath.Working ,so I could raise my 2 boys.
  • Pop of any kind. Been 1 month. 2 yrs ago was diagnosed type 2 diabetic and stopped regular pop that day and now zero pop at all.

  • TQOTD. I gave up running. I used to be in amazing shape but I kept getting hurt and I don't need the mental escape now that I did then.

  • I gave up on my best friend. We used to be very close but over the years she got into hard drugs. I tried to help her but realized you can’t help someone who doesn’t want help. I was a new mom so I had to let go because I didn’t want her bringing the drugs around my daughter.
  • Connie and fish, I have given up on trying to please certain family members. All my life I have been compared to my brothers because there both successful with families etc. I have had a certain few family members that have never fully excepted who I am. Well I'm almost 40 now and I hit a wall with my toxic family members a couple years ago. Finally I threw up my hands and said if you dont love me for me than screw off. Stop treating people on how much money they have, and treat them for the people they are. That's my vent for the day. Love you guys, keep making people laugh.
  • Balloon animals bc I am married.. Fish will like that one
  • I gave up watching the news 3 months ago because all the negativity gave me anxiety. I have been much happier, and in the age of the internet, I can find anything I want or need to know at any time.
