Half a year smoke free. WOW.

I just passed the 6 month milestone.about time too what a drag the last month has been i was so determined to reach this point. It feels more like a year because it was a year ago that i first began this quit, i lasted 6 weeks and it took several months to finally get a grip on another attempt and here i am, pretty hard going all in all. iv reached a point where cravings are so rare iv forgotten what they were. the morning cigarette was the hardest to get over, in fact its only the last few weeks where i havnt wanted one at that time. I dont miss smoking at all now. nothing now would go better with smoke.No pain or difficulty of any kind would be eased by smoking . I have absolutely no reason to do it. there is nothing missing that it would make complete and i know with all of my heart that i never really fully enjoyed it. it has not been a sacrifice that i wish i could have again. its a lifelong ambition come to fruition, iv always wanted to stop, and its happened at the right time. every day without smoking is loads better than any day where i smoked in fact from where im standing now cigarettes just spoiled everything, none of them was ever as good as the thought of one. apologies for being a bit of a pratt recently. my excuse. i quit smoking.

    And there we have it. Right there. The ultimate truth about smoking. What a shame it took us a few decades to realise it, but we have now arrived.

    I'm so very pleased for you, Mash. You have done it your way, and it has worked. :) Welcome to the six month room. The only way out of here now is the door to the Penthouse. There's no going back. ;)
