I haven't posted much recently - life's been keeping me busy (that's what I get for writing novels and running two businesses he he).
Well, today is the start of my seventh week! In some ways I can't believe that I've made it this far, in other ways, I now feel like a non smoker who is occasionally assaulted by strange smoking cravings!
I'm back in the normal swing of life, going to the pub, seeing my smoking mates, have been on holiday, had a boozy (but nico-free) "Withnail and I" weekend in a Scottish cottage with 12 loonies. I'm getting the odd comment from smokers like "Can't believe you're still using that thing" (the inhalator - I'm down to two or three cartridges a day but still carry it around like a security blanket). "I'll have you smoking again by tomorrow" (he failed naughty chap!) etc etc but surviving well.
If I'm tempted (which is increasingly rarely and more on a philosophical rather than physical level) I always remember how far I've come, and how hard that first week or so was. Seems to work!
Congrats to everyone who is still trying to quit and good luck to us all!
Here's to my final week in month two starting tomorrow and lets see what month three brings (a quarter of a year smoke free after 20 years wooo!)
