18 weeks

Hi everyone, It is 18 weeks today for me and I cant quite believe it. I feel as though I have overachieved if that makes sense? I just did not expect to get this far. I am so glad that I have, but I kind of quit without really thinking about it. I really believe that this forum has played a very big part in my quit and I really dont think I will ever smoke again. I have been really surprised by the amount of fails last week and I sympathise with them as I dont think I would want to go through the process of quitting again. It must just have been the right time for me.Anyway just thought I would let you all share my landmark and thank everyone for the support and of course the laughs.:D

    Congratulations - brillian news! OMG - I still have almost 9 weeks to go until I get to 18 weeks, and that's virtually double my quit time already. Seems a lifetime away at the moment, but I keep everything as crossed and focussed as I can manage! :rolleyes:

    I take such heart from people like you, it keeps me motivated through what are still difficult times, even at 9+ weeks. You've done so well. You've only got to do approx one more third of the time you've already done, and you hit 6 months! :D

    I also really feel for all those people starting again today. It terrifies me - there but for the grace that could be me tomorrow, next week, next month - we never know what's going to leap out and bite us. :eek:

    Well done - hope you're celebrating with a treat! :D

  • Thanks Shazza

    Thanks Shazza, Yes I am celebrating tonight, but not my quit, it is my sons 28th birthday so I have some lovely food and a bottle of wine. You have done really well too. What I will say is that you will notice it getting easier and easier for you now. 9 weeks is a really good quit and I get the feeling that you really want to quit so that is half the battle. Keep on posting and let me know how you are doing. When we are both a year quit the 9 weeks difference wont mean anything even though at the moment you feel far behind me, you are not.:)

  • Has 18 weeks really passed :eek:

    Congratulations Haze - that's a really great achievement.

    Some people quit and never look back / you are definitely one of those x

    Thanks very much Karri. I dont take anything for granted I once stopped for 5 years and then started again. I must always be on my guard. I have said it before, it can be very complex this quitting lark!

  • Delighted and honoured to share your landmark with you Haze. 18 magnificent weeks! Well bloody done :D

    Super well done Haze. 18 weeks is great.

    Everyone should note your quote because I have done a 5 year and a 13 year quit also. Why why why?

    Thanks very much Aitch. Why why why? I know why I did, I was going through a very painful divorce! Did it help? Did it heck. Be warned! You have to keep focused.:)

    Thanks very much so are you!:D

  • HEYA HAZE what a great achievment, its good to hear some people are suceeding in quitting, there has been far too many failed quits recently . its good to be reminded to not be complacent or take it for granted. I think the trick is to keep feeling that its worth it and is better than smoking and good news like yours keeps me on the right track .

    Thanks Mash! It is worth it! We just have to remember why we quit in the first place. I know that I could not do this again, so I cannot fail because I dont want to die a horrible death. My uncle has emphysema, he is struggles to breathe and is on oxygen 24/7. That is no way to end your days. I dont want to get heavy but I have to be honest these are the reasons I quit.
