Hang in there everyone, its all about time and understanding the more you understand the addiction and the longer since your last smoke the easier it becomes to abstain.
I passed the 2 year mark a month and a half ago and these days I rarely think about smoking. Occasionally there is a nostalgic want for a smoke as old associations crop up but nothing more than a passing fancy.
Life without fags is easier, no more planning to fit in a fix and the late night drives to the all night garage have been consigned to history.
I am now a proper ex-smoker and truly resent anyone breathing those noxious fumes at me the way I did at others for so long. I was on the beach yesterday and found it quite selfish that so many people were breathing their smoke across the rest of us with a total disregard for anyone else. There was even a stall selling shirts with the slogan "Smoking is MY choice so F### OFF!" I just wanted to tell anyone that bought one - Fine just keep it to yourself!
