Good mornign all,
I am feeling fantastic in every way, the only thought that keeps creeping into my mind is why didn’t I do this years ago.
If I only I listened to family and friends who moaned, nagged and reasoned with me to give up, but like everyone else on this forum I couldn’t imagine life without my cigarettes, what would I do without the friend who was there for me during good times & bad? I always got angry and snappy about others pressuring me.
Now I can admit how wrong I had been, I feel more energetic, my skin is better, I no longer stink of stale smoke, I am sleeping better, my food tastes amazing, my breathing is better, I sleep all through the night and my bank balance has never looked so healthy and that horrible worry in the back of my mind is slowly disappearing, you know, the one that asks "what damage am I doing?"
I've now been in every situation on numerous occasions where I would usually fail my quit - Drinks with friends, driving, after food, with tea & coffee as well as after an argument and during a stressful day at work. Although these occasions were not easy, by fighting through them I know I can beat them again for the rest of my life.
Apologies for the long boast but I felt like shouting out loud as I am so pleased, unfortunately my OH is still smoking so difficult to speak with her without coming across as one of those nagging, moaning ex-smokers.
Thanks for listening.
