Going strong still

Hi all its been a while,

Iv reached the 4 month mark and what can i say.

Its been a rollercoaster of good days and bad days. My emotions have been tested to the limit but I feel FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont get me wrong, iv just been camper with a freind who is a heavy smoker and at times i got the urges, but i coped.

I still find it hard to relax, because it feels like something is missing but hopefully in time that will get less and less. Its truly amazing that i have managed to quit, and people around me are amazed too. Nobody believed i could do it....well i showed them lol!!:D

I hope your quits are going well.

Take Care

Jo, that's fantastic news! You should be so proud. Huge congratulations to you.

I know what you mean about still feeling things aren't quite right, but over time it keeps getting better. And at this stage, even when you're having a bad day it's easier to cope with. You know you've had worse days and survived, and you know that tomorrow will probably be better, so it's that much easier to keep on trucking.

Isn't the freedom fantastic? No matter how bad the bad days are, nothing could be worse than chaining yourself to those bloody cancer sticks again.

Really, really pleased for you. Roll on the next milestone! :D
