I have just realised that I have been travelling this new path in my life for 16 days :eek: I cannot tell you how surprised I am as it has gone so quickly. For the most part it has been very easy (surprisingly) so I hope that this will continue to be the norm. I have tried so many times to quit that I know what might come to tempt me off the path and that come what may I cannot step off it.
I have had my moments of thinking about a ciggie but it has been fleeting. I can still wake up feeling c**p when I realise I cannot wake myself with a fag or 3. Hey, I am still alive and those moments are too short to worry about. Day 6 I thought was going to be very wobbly and I wasn't in the best of moods but came out the other side with nothing nasty happening, at least my work colleagues still seem to be there to annoy me lol.
I have found previously that it has got harder for me the further into a quit I am. This my or may not happen but if it does I am ready for it this time. Previous attempts have seen me absolutley bursting with drive and passion only for it too reverse in the click of a finger.
The difference is this time I am not constantly thinking about the fact I have left smoking behind me. I am not focused on how long it has been (hence my surprise at being in week 2!) For the most part I feel calm and just doing it without a thought.
This is all a welcome surprise and look forward to spending next weekend at mums without having to keep popping out for a fag and giving her a long, sweet smelling hug
