And what a way to get there.
Got up yesterday morning to find that my bike had been nicked, giving a massive inconvenience. The sort of thing that would previously get me to make excuses to myself to go and buy a packet of fags.
Not only did that not make me want to go and smoke, but I also forgot that it was 6 months until late last night when I was watching telly!
For some bizarre reason, this morning I have got one of those "cigarette tastes" at the back of my throat, that I had when I first quit. No idea why, but I'm sure it's not going to make me cave in after so long! Maybe it's because it's the first time I've actually thought about smoking for a few weeks.
So there we have it. 6 months without a single cigarette. Body in considerably better shape (my running limit WILL reach 29k tomorrow), and finances getting there (although I always seem to waste money on something!!)
For those at the start of the journey, you really need to stick it out. The cravings etc at the beginning ARE possible to overcome, and the rewards are well worth it!
