not been on here since pre 100 days but here i am now ! Day 108 nearly over, it is actually getting so much simpler now, don't think about fags much now and am loving being a non smoker. Still on this gum stuff but only a couple of pieces a day. I am way too paranoid to stop chewing because I became quite a depressive I think and from about the nasty week 3 right through to the nasty month 3 I was the misery from hell ! I actually wondered if nicotine had masked some sort of clinical depression for all them years ? Sounds mad but a possibility ? anyhow things are finally slowly looking up now and days seem much brighter BUT because my mind and life seem so nice i'm scared to spit the gum out and be totally free just yet? Maybe if I just see how i feel in a couple of weeks then I'll quit the gum or maybe it's a psychological thing i don't know but hey 108 days for me is such an achievement, especially as it was one heck of a journey more times than not.....it was exciting in the beginning when i was counting the hours days then weeks and the first month mark and then it as almost an anti-climax, like 'whats the big deal, so you quit, thousands do it everyday......BUT yes it was a big deal and yes i am one of them thousands......Believe me if I can go through my miserable mental state and still stay off them filthy things then please rest assured so can each and every one of you who read this ! xxxx
