11 Weeks, or 77 Days

...and since 11 and 7 are my absolute favorite numbers I figured what the hell, I'm so going to post this time :D

I feel good, yay! I'm proud that I suddenly found the strenght to quit back in August and pleased that I managed to stick with the decision made, I'm also beyond happy that I have had no blips so far and immensely glad that I found this forum!! and that I did stick around, even when sometimes being from a non English-speaking country has made me feel slightly weird from time to time - not that anybody ever made me feel uncomfortable, as in wtf are you doing here, lol no, absolutely - it was just me feeling a little off sometimes, something pretty natural I'm sure you know what I mean.

But actually in the long run I think to have people from all over the world in the forum can in fact help everybody see even better that no matter where you come from and what your story is and what the environment you grew up in, the enemy is still one and just one, all over the world same one for everyone, same characteristics, same efforts required, painfully but also reassuringly identical withdrawal symptoms - it really doesn't matter where we are, as long as we're against smoke we can be together and help each other out! gah just thinking about it I'm making myself all teary eyed now lol :D :o :rolleyes:

    Congrats Florenta!

    And you are so right. It is amazing to hear other peoples stories. It is amazing how universal smoking is.... and to think it basically is a deadly addictive drug that has been mass commercialized larglely by a handful of large American corporations. EVIL.

  • Thanks for your support kenzo ;) Really, thanks.

  • Ciao Bella!

    Apologies - completely missed your post the other day but want to congratulate you on an amazing 77days. Hope you are keeping well and enjoying that new leather jkt. (it'll last a hell of a lot longer 40 odd packeta o cigs!)

    Wow Francesca you are just fantastic, what a way to go, 11 weeks! congratulations!!!

    Just reading your post made me feel stronger mentally, and youre right wherever we come from we need to stick together to fight the damn nic, and as the saying goes, "if at first we dont succeed try try again."

    Congratulations again on coming sooo far!

    *huge hugs*, charlene.

  • Aw karen and charlene you're absolutely lovely, thanks for the help and the support it is so very comforting to share each new step further on with you here especially as in real life people tend to quite soon take for granted you're an ex smoker already and that's all! Isn't it both amusing and scary how fast they get to think of us as non-smokers, now if only WE could think of ourselves that way just as fast :o :D
