Month 4

well I achieved 3 months last Sunday but havent been able to get online. I have to admit that last week was quite hard at times but manageable. I haven't had urges like that since the beginning of my quit. I still feel very smug with myself getting this far, and I don't care :p. My son keeps asking me how long I have been stopped for and when I tell him, he thanks ME. I should be the one thanking him, he has kept me going with some gentle nagging and encouragement, he is my inspiration. I am so glad he nagged me into doing this..........Roll on 4 months :D

  • Hi Shojam

    Belated well done on your 3 months - excellent little quit you've got there :D

    Stay smug - you deserve to be ;)

  • Well done you, you have every right to feel smug. It does get easier, with every passing day and week now you will feel stronger and healthier. Sounds to me like you and your son have this cracked!

    Fantastic.

    Shojam,

    sorry I am a bit late with these congratulations, but well done on the Three months and like you I will always remember that I did find the tree month point quite hard for most reasons like missing a fag ,depression and goodness knows what else but after that point I have found it plain sailing. Like you my youngest son who is at Edinburgh University would phone or visit each week and he would ask if I was still off the cigs, just so that he could congratulate me, and like any other student he is always poor but at my six month quit he gave my a lovely bottle of The Balvenie single malt (it made the six month quit worth it)but I notice that the majority of freinds who are smokers very rarely pat your back or ever remember that you are trying to stop after the first couple of weeks, and I beleive that as you progress in your quit attempt we all need encouragement and I beleive,this is why, this site is such a sucess.

    When someone shows real interest (like your son) it tells me that your health is more important to them than anything else, and therefore also confirms there love. These facts alone should make sure that we don't return to smoking. If I don't speak to you before I will watch for your 4 month marker, and post regularly because the many new quiters rely on us older quiters for support.

  • thank you all so much for your support, it's been a godsend having this site and all you wonderful ppl. Hope everyone is well :D
