I am still doing well and I reached week 7 :D

I haven't been posting much, still stressed out from work but I can cope and thats amazing . I am using less and less NRT and I feel I don't need it anymore. I keep it in my drawer just in case :D

This quit is different from all the other ones. I always felt , I am loosing out , I am suffering , I can't have fun and my life has stopped the day I quit, even got depressed about it .

My thinking has changed, it doesn't bother me people smoking around me, seeing cigarettes lying around , or going to the shop seeing my favorite cigarettes on the shelve waiting for me. How strange is that ??

I hope everyone is well and I promise to post more regulary :p

Hi dorset and well done on reaching Week 7, that is awesome:D I am just starting Week 4 and I seem to be settling down a bit in the last couple of days. I'm like you, on previous quit attempts I felt as if I was depriving myself of something but now I'm actually starting to like not smoking. So all is good, well today anyway. I might go back to being a bat out of hell tomorrow but I'll deal with it when it comes:D

Enjoy the rest of Sunday,

Zoe

Thank you boo ,betty boop and una :)

I wanted to quit so much but didn't know how and why I was failing everytime. Mostly failing . :o

One thing's for sure, I would've not made it without you all on here and the forum. I am feeling the freedom and peace that I always wanted.
