6 Month Anniversary

Well, here it is. Today 6 months ago I finally managed to start a quit after years of false starts, and I havent looked back :-)

The thought of even smoking a fag now repulses me, I don't ever crave them, I don't think about them, its as if they never existed! I can't believe what I used to do to myself and my body!

So if any of you new quitters are reading this, then it does get better, does get easier. Take up a sport, keep busy and the time will soon pass you by.

Amsie,

Huge well done on your half year celebration, its really warming to see everyone rolling on through now so very different to them heady first weeks where we were all very :eek: :eek: and you only have to check out the early forums to see that folk starting their quits now are just as we were.

Well i second what you said there.. it sure does get better, the odd challenge along the way but you get through it, and then you get here at 6 months done and you do feel much much more in control. Great innit!

Hope your going to celebrate your half year (even if at the weekend), because i sure did :)

Nicely done, and look forward to seeing your next post at 7 months!

thanks for all the replies and comments. :-)

Yea, its so hard to believe how easy it is now compared to the early days. I can remember counting the seconds at times, but I was determined to quit, and I hope new quitters reading this will see that there is hope, it does get easier and you can live without them. I honestly was one of those who loved cramming in them fags, but if I can do it, anyone really can!!!

Good luck everyone, sorry im not around as much as in the early days, and thanks again for all the comments and kind words! Bring on the penthouse!
