well i can hardly believe its me writing this but yep, I have completed the dreaded 3s. and am starting month 4 being a non smoker today.
My quit buddy gave in so I have the authority to administer 100 face slaps at any time in the future, not necessarily at the same time. I'll hold off for a while though as I think the fact that he was so goddam cocky about beating me before we started (he'd quit for 9 months before, me only 13 days) is a big enough amount of humble pie and slap in the face in itself for now.
thought id share this which might be of help to some of the rest of you -
here's the stats it pumped out for me...
me - Free and Healing for Three Months, 15 Hours and 55 Minutes, while extending my life expectancy 9 Days and 15 Hours, by avoiding the use of 2780 nicotine delivery devices that would have cost me £697.63.
i'm so happy that I'm doing this - thanks to all that helped me in the early stages, there was many of you who dug deep and offered support when it was most vital. Big thanks especially to Jase who time and time again spent a lot of time giving me the rationalisation of situations that my psyche needed to combat the lies being generated my the nicodeamons. Thanks mate. lifesaver - litterally!
i dont think that ive fully adjusted yet to the new non smoking me but i have made the transition mentally from being someone who is giving up smoking to someone who is a non smoker.
thats a big step.
btw, when do you teeth start to get totally white? i mean i guess its different for everyone and depends on how well you'd looked after them and stuff but ive still got nicotine staines on the back of my teeth and want them to go!!
havent been to the dentist for bloody years so maybe a trip is in order at some point.
also seem to be getting a grip on the excessive drinking that took over when I was first quitting, feel way more calm and relaxed but think there is still some to go yet.
the best thought is that on new years day I will be moving into month 6. nice!
hope all are well,
