5 Calender Months since I stopped smoking today

Good morning ladies and gentleman,

I haven't written a thread for quite a while, I do pop in every now and again to see how you are all doing though.

I have got to 5 calender months or a 150 days smoke free today. While I am so proud of myself for getting this far the last few weeks have been hard for some reason. I have had cravings like I had when I first stopped smoking couldn't get the dam fags out my head, even went back to dreaming about them. I don't know if it was because I have been feeling a little low lately or it is just something that happens. Twice I have been up to the cigarette counter in a supermarket and changed my mind thank goodness there is something inside me stopping me from smoking.

Still have the odd moment in the day but I am not going to allow that odd moment spoil what I have achieved. So now my thinking is positive I know that I can keep smoke free I will just ride that odd moment through like I did in the early days. I know it will only last a short while and it will be over and I can get on with my day.

I would like to say well done to everyone that has stopped/quit smoking and I am proud of you all for making the best decision of your life.

  • Hi Dolly,

    It sounds like you have had a bit of a struggle recently, I went through something similar around that time too but it passed so just hold on a little longer, anyway congratulaions on getting 5 months done you are doing really well.

  • Dolly, Congratulations on your 5 months quit!! I was having some problems in the 4th - 5th month also. Didn't seem to have much problem with the 3's like others, mine hit later in the quit. Maybe it has something to do with age, or the amount smoked and number of years smoking, but things have bothered me futher into my quit than what I read about here for others. Doesn't matter as long as we stay quit. Just have to ride out the storms. So far, the sixth month has been a breeze! Yeah!! I feel really good and am more than a little ready to work or the weight gain.

  • Well done Dolly

    5 months is FAB :)

  • Hell I could have written that - see my post!!

    Well done but huge sympathy for going through the same thing!

    I am a right miserable nogarD at the moment!

    We can do it DD and we are nearly half way to the penthouse!



  • Thanks Guys,

    From reading your replies I don't feel alone and it sounds like some of you are going through the same thing. Well done to all of you and ((((hugs))))) to you all.
