Really interesting thing just happened. Waiting for the lift here at work and a smoking-buddy (well, I've known him 20+ years so more of a friend), came up to me and said "there's a rumour you've quit smoking". I just said "well, I've stopped". He then asked how so I told him about Champix and this forum. Just sitting here it's struck me that someone sees me doing what I've always envied other being able to do – to stop smoking – and has asked how I've done it. I was always the person asking that question.
I've not been having a good day to that point- thinking far too much about the little white sticks, but just like that the day changed and I'm feeling pretty good.
So fellow Octoquits, although nobody may be saying anything, people are noticing what we've done and maybe getting ready to ask how did you do that?.
BTW – 23 days today and I'm not sure where I should be. I've done Week 3 and it seems too early to be in Month one, but there's no Week 4 to hide in. So gang, where do you want me (I've been married a long time so I know to take advice from a woman). Thinks – I'll stay in week three until told otherwise….. don't want to be told off, they might swap the beer for cake!
