Just passed the 8 month milestone which took me by surprise just like the 7 month one. i cant beleive another month has flown by. The universe seems to be testing me with major family stresses but im not going to beleive the lie that smoking will make me feel better, its just an old habit waving at me or is it drowning ? nah its just a habit ,best not to give it human traits, i might start feeling sorry for it ,seeing it as an old friend is dangerous too, it might be valid in the early part of a quit but 8mths down the line it could be folly.
I'd like to thank everyone for supporting me and wish you all well with your quit. The weight i gained is starting to diminish slowly due to riding my bike and giving up sugar, i was having loads of it in tea ,coffee cakes and biscuits, an occasional habit that became an obsession like smoking did. its funny that i exchanged one addiction for another. So the sugar has gone and so have the energy highs and lows and emotional /mood rollercoaster that goes with it .It really is true that everything sorts itself out in the end once we quit smoking, so just be patient Y,all cos good things come to those who wait.
