Won't be around over the week-end so I am going to post today instead.
On Sunday I will have been smoke free for 6 whole months. This is one of the milestones that I have been SO looking forward to, given that I smoked for 34 years I never thought I could last so long. The next one is obviously 1 year.
Well, what can I say....it has been an experience (one that I never want to repeat) but I can honestly say that it is THE best thing I have ever done. I should never have taken up the b****y filthy habit in the first place and should never have let it go on as long but hey I was an addict and I cannot change that. BUT I have now finally nailed it and I am chuffed to bits.
The benefits gained are just too many to mention but one that I am most pleased about is the control that I have gained back into my life rather than me being controlled by cigarettes. No longer do I have to think about where and when I can get my fix.
I do still occasionally think about cigarettes and still have the odd crave but they are immediately squashed. The nico demon is still trying to get me with the "go on, remember how nice a cig goes with that lovely cool glass of wine in your hand" but I can tell him to b****r off with confidence.:cool:
For all the folk on here that are just quitting...DO NOT GIVE UP GIVING UP...it is soooo worth the initial discomfort (not pain, that is too strong a word).
Regards to all
P.S. Tracy Nolan,,,are you still here? Congrats on your 6 months too.
