This seems to be getting slowly easier, so it's time for a little re-affirmation.
This is todays entry in my quit diary.
Today is day 19 â€“ thatâ€™s right, Iâ€™m only 2 days away from 3 weeks, this last week has gone very quickly and I feel that that is a good sign â€“ itâ€™s means time is passing more quickly so I am spending less time thinking about what I am doing and more time just getting on with things.
Iâ€™m feeling good, feeling positive and feeling like this time is for good. I do not intend to ever smoke another cigarette â€“ in fact, while Iâ€™m not consciously acting on the quit (This journal, and the support site) I hardly think of cigarettes any more.
However, I must remember that I am a nicotine addict. I will always be a nicotine addict, but I can choose not to feed that addiction so that I remain free of it. The only way I can remain free is to not give my addiction what it wants.
Therefore I choose not to smoke today â€“ I choose another day of freedom from my addiction.
