Well its four months today since I quit, who would have believed that I would do it.
Well I can tell you I didn’t and don’t think any of my family thought I would either, but today is exactly four real months since I had my last cig.
Do I feel better for it, let me think yes I do and not just health wise but also emotionally it has made me take stock of my life in more ways than one, did you know that when couples decide to quit that the divorce rate goes up.
No I didn’t know that until I read it on the internet, can’t always believe what you read on here but I wouldn’t be at all surprised, me and my OH came as close to splitting than we have ever in the 16 years together.
But back to the quit last night I went to a 40th party and danced all night except when I went out for some fresh air and stood chatting to all our friends who hadn’t seen me for ages.
Didn’t even think it necessary to mention that I had quit till someone offered me a cig and I said no I don’t any more, to say some were floored would be an understatement but I just smiled and went back on the dance floor, when was the last time I could dance for more than 5 mins without being puffed out badly I can’t remember 12/13 years ago maybe.
I think I was shocked as I used to love dancing and was a bit scared to get up would I keel over with heart attack?? But I went and I am so glad I gave it a go because it showed me I can push myself a little harder than a walk.
Wow where does this energy come from, so as you have probably gathered yes I am glad I quit and look forward to the next milestone of 5 months, and would like to thank all the quitters on this site who have given me the courage and drive to keep being a non smoker thanks all keep being quitters because this is the only time being a quitter gets you a pat on the back
Also I spent a few hours the other day looking at the amount of people who have quit and there reasons, I never did get round to threading on that area but I think we should all do it so that in the future maybe weeks or months or even years when we have a time of weakness we can go and check out what drove our quit to whatever stage it has reached and be reinforced to the good of it, so thats it four months and so glad, going out for lunch to celebrate.
