“I Smoked For 20 Years” – A Plus Opens Up About Chain Smoking Habits; Advises Those Wanting To Quit

Published

Controversial Ghanaian musician and political activist, Kwame A Plus has given away some serious revelations about his personal life.

The outspoken A Plus took to Facebook to share smoking addiction while advising fellow addicts on how to quit such a habit.

He wrote:

I was a chain smoker. On a very good day, I smoked a pack or more. I began smoking in1994 and never stopped till 2014 – twenty straight years.

One day, I decided to call it to quit. I bought a new pack of cigarette and organised my own cigarette send-off party that morning, I treated myself to about five sticks of kingsize. After, I placed the pack on my bedside cabinet and said to myself, “Enough, I need a break!!” Then I sat in front of my mirror, and said to myself, If you are truly the master of your soul, though you will see this cigarette when you wake up and before you go to bed, and you shall be tempted to smoke it, do not touch it for a year. And yes, I did it.

From June 16th 2014 to June 16th 2015, I did not smoke. But you see, when you win the champions league, you want to win it back to back. I therefore decided to challenge myself for another year. And once again, I was successful. For two straight years, I had a pack of cigarette on my bedside cabinet, kept the same friends I used to smoke with, went to the same places I used to smoke at but didn’t smoke a stick. By that time, after two years of not smoking, my system had naturally rejected it and I could not smoke again. I removed the cigarette from my room and threw it away. At long last, the battle had ended.

It has been six years since I quit smoking and I want to say a very big thank you to the man in me for being strong
Maybe you are struggling to quit. There is a man or woman in you who wants to help but it has to start with you. The truth is that it is not easy. Your will power must be on another level to be able to quit. You have to be in total control of yourself. From my experience, I can offer some advice to help you – that is, if you are struggling to quit smoking;

  1. Don’t stay away from friends you used to smoke with because you want to quit. It is not the company you keep. It is about being the master of your soul. Be tempted, resist the temptation. Anybody who can resist tobaccotemptation is a hero. It is not easy.
  2. Don’t stop smoking because you don’t have a cigarette. Keep one. It can be in your pocket, your car, or in your room. Just make a DECISION not to smoke. If the reason why you are not smoking is that you don’t have access to a cigarette, the day you’ll have access to it, you’ll smoke like crazy and chew the box after
  3. Don’t substitute it with electronic cigarettes. Just just!!!
  4. Set goals. have a deep conversation with yourself and make a DECISION to quit. Sit with your friends, watch them smoke. If you succeed in resisting the temptation to smoke, go home and mark “day 1” If you don’t come in contact with smokers and for that matter, you were not tempted, don’t count. Do this for 30 days and you’ll feel like a winner
    It is not about what someone said about smoking. It is not because your doctor said whatever. It is about you being in charge of you. As author Germany Kent puts it, you cannot live the same day over and over again and call that a life. Life is about evolving mentally, spiritually, and emotionally
    My new challenge is to get six packs I’m trying. So help me Aburi mountain.
    Kwame A Plus
    Leader, #TPP

Nana Addo Grants Full Scholarship To Brilliant But Needy SHS Graduate With 8As WASSCE Result

Published

on


It is every student’s dream to pass their exams with flying colours and have the chance to progress their education.

However for Thomas Amoaning, this dream would have come to a nought but for the intervention of the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo.

Thomas recently completed Adeiso SHS with a perfect score of 8As in the recently releases WASSCE results.

His story of not being able to continue due to his poor background caught the attention of the President on social media who has directed the Scholarship Secretariat to give him a full scholarship.

A statement from the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat noted that President Akuffo-Addo has taken notice of Thomas’ excellence in the 2020 WASSCE and has directed that he be granted full scholarship.

“As a normal practice and taking into consideration the socio-geographical background of the student, HE the President has expressly directed the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat to grant full scholarship award to the student for his tertiary studies,” the statement read.

Forget NPP, I Started Free SHS In 2015 – Mahama

Published

on


Former President John Dramani Mahama says the much talked about Free SHS programme is a legacy of the erstwhile NDC government.

According to him, the policy was launched under his administration as President in 2015.

Speaking at a durbar in Tuobong, a community in the Tempane District of the Upper East Region, the NDC flagbearer said the governing NPP government has however messed up the implementation of the policy with the introduction of the double track system, something he’ll abolish when voted into power in the upcoming election.

Mr. Mahama explained that he’ll continue the abandoned 200 days schools to make sure that the Free SHS program is properly implemented under the next NDV government.

Free SHS Cannot Save You From Defeat, Don’t Rely On It – Kwesi Pratt To Nana Addo

Published

on


Ace journalist Kwesi Pratt has advised the NPP not to bank all its electoral fortunes on the flagship Free SHS program.

He said that shouldn’t be the only trump card as election 2020 fast approaches on December 7.

Mr. Pratt made reference to the CPP in 2000 who didn’t have any relevant say in the outcome of the election despite introducing the free education policy.

Even Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah was overthrown despite being a string advocate for free education said Kwesi Pratt.

To him, the suitability of a candidate to the voters is a major determinant in election outcomes and not who implemented free education or not.

He spoke on Peace FM’s Kokrookoo Show with Kwame Sefa Kayi on Tuesday, November 25, 2020.
