I seem to have very quietly quit smoking.
Not only have I quit but I did it cold turkey. Haven't had any withdrawal and not thought about cigarettes. The turning point for me was realising I wasn't addicted to nicotine, just cigarettes. I wouldn't smoke a rollie if I ran out, in fact I'd rather not smoke at all. If nicotine was all smoking was about I would surely smoke anything.
So after a year I finally did it. Thank you to all the people who stuck with me over the last year and never stopped believing. For those that did give up it did sting a little seeing you not write on my threads but it didn't stop me trying. Finally to all the people that thought I came here as some sort of support group weirdo you were wrong, I only ever wanted to make it.
This all sounds a bit final but the truth is the last few days have been pretty uneventful quit wise. Life hasn't changed at all, I just smell nicer.
Can't take all the credit though. Had a lot of help from Austin recently which made me see things in a totally different light.
Big thanks too to Bella and Cav who always wanted to see this day and never stopped writing those "you can do it" messages.
