100 Days

Actually, 103 day 103 for me :)

I'll say it now, when I started this quit I was in fear of failing just like every other time. As the time passed I've been more and more suprised at me - a day, a week, then a month - I was in real fear of Christmas. But I'm still here after 100 days.

I still think of them occasionlly. I don't have the craves, just the odd thought like you'd fancy a McDonalds or something. I'm not complacent - I know that one puff would take me straight back to 20/day, but I don't smoke at the present.

I truely believe that you people on this site got me here. Reading the words of those ahead of me to know it gets easier (and it does). Reading the hopes and fears of those starting their quits - and seeing their successes. reminds me of my first days and makes me determined not to have to go through that again. And to those who quit when I did - didn't dare be the weakest link in that group!

So - thank you to everyone. You've all helped me either with tales of triumph, or stories of fear. I had both emotions and knowing I'm not the only one has helped so much.
