Well at the beginning it took a fair few hard weeks to even start believing that I really could quit smoking forever.
I didn't really want to think about going a whole year with out ciggies, that was too frightening - it frightened me to think I'd got to get through the day.
But I remember reading someone's post that they had reached 10 months. For some reason it really inspired me. It didn't seem as long as a year - it seemed almost achievable, yet a real challenge too. And I kind of thought, if I can get to 10 months, I could probably make it to a whole year!
And now - I am 100% certain I will never smoke again, I have been quit for 10 months today and its less than 10 weeks til I'm in the penthouse!!
Well done to all the Monkey Bar-Stewards who have made it this far - see you all in the penthouse!
