So as of 8am this morning I have moved into month 6 and the last room before the Penthouse where I will be going next.
Benifits so far:-
Shortage of breath gone
Stink of smoke gone from house, car and myself
No more huddled up in a cold wet corner to have a smoke.
Over 3,000 cigs not smoked saving me over £1,100. Now getting to do nice things with that money.
Go anywhere without worrying about being able to have a smoke.
Sure the list could go on and on.
Still occationally think right time for a fag and it comes right out of nowhere. It causes panic for about 3 - 4 seconds when I realise I don't smoke. After the initial panic I just laugh at it and it don't like that so it goes off to annoy someone else.
I still think of cigaretts fairly regularly but never about smoking one. The thought just puts a smile on my face and just reminds me I am a happy non smoker.
I consider myself very lucky as my quit has been relatively easy, although I have had other attemps that were not. The job is certainly not finished yet and I have learnt from previous quits to never be complacent and to always be on your guard. I am winning the battle and everyone on this forum can do the same. Some quits may take a little longer but you can all do it so stay strong and we will all join together eventually in the Penthouse.
