Afternoon all my little quit buddies,
Today is my 80th day of being free of the dreadfull weed & all it's associated chemicals No more drowning feeling in my chest. Constantly coughing to clear my chest & throat. No more purple toes just cute little pinkies. No more panful cramp in my legs & feet. No more stained teeth & fingers. No disgusting smell following me wherever I go. No panic & stressing about when I can have that next 'fix'. No more fighting for breathe at the slightest exertion. I HAVE FOUND FREEDOM.
I have also found more confidence & am more relaxed now I do not rely on nicotine to get me through the day. I don't smoke, am losing weight, am looking after ME & feel brilliant. I wish I could bottle it & give it to everyone to see them through the bad times. Just remember you can feel like this also. Just give it time, throw everything you have at your quit & come out the other side feeling strong & oh, so proud of your achievement.
I am putting some of my quit money towards paying for eye laser surgery next week. Could not have afforded it otherwise.
I like the new confident, strong me that has emerged from this quit. She was there all along I know, have had glimpses of her before but she tended to get drowned by being a smoking 'junkie'.
Sooooooooo, here is a toast to all of us here, no matter where we are in our quits, to a long, happy, quit free, confident & strong life for ourselves & our loved ones
