Day 7 and so emotional at the moment

Day 7. I cant believe I have got here. I went to the help to quit clinic today, this time last week the machine recorded 62(mgs?) of carbon monoxide, today it was down to 2.

I look back at the last week and cant believe I havent had one puff at all.Im feeling so emotional now and feeling that I have achieved something good! Im staying with my parents to recover after having a major op, my mum smokes but I havent been tempted. Ive had the cravings, by God have I craved but the thing that keeps me going is remembering how I felt yesterday and how I never want to suffer that day again.

The great posts on here help me too, I read the appropriate day and if I have the same feelings as someone else, then how they coped helps me too, if not I think how lucky I have been to escape that day.

Anyway going into the 2nd week now and I WILL not smoke this week either.

    Keep taking it one day at a time. There's still a way to journey, but the path gets easier and easier.
