Day 42

It is now 6 weeks since I last smoked:D,

It feels good, and every day I'm thinking of myself more as someone that used to smoke rather than someone trying to give up.

When I 1st stopped I would search for the packet in my pocket or open the place in the car where I used to have fags quite often. But I don't remember the last time I did.

That's not to say I don't feel like smoking and indeed miss it sometimes but its not hard to deal with. I'm sure there will be tough times ahead as well as easy ones but my heads in the right place and its not as hard this time as on previous quits which is why I think I shall succeed this time, after all there has to be a quit that sticks.

Thank you all for your help and support thus far.

I won't ever let my guard down, and I will never take another puff NOT ONE.

Cheers

Nic

  • well done :)

    those "feelings" (i dont think they are cravings anymore) do get less and less but im not sure if they ever go away!

    i choose not to smoke.........same as i choose not to eat cake today!!!! ;)

    congratulations! :)

  • You are doing great Nic.

    It's a mind game thing which most of us have worked out although it doesn't always help the feelings.

    Stay strong and watch the months fly by............

    Jude: You just cant resist mentioning cakes can you ya fat heifer :rolleyes:

  • Thanks you both.

    Yes it is a mind game, and I doubt that I will ever be able to say that I never feel like having a smoke.

    I found out in my early teens that my mother had smoked but given up about 6 or 7 years before I was born. When she told me she said that even then she would sometimes feel that she would like a cigarette, so that was some 20 years after.
