Sorry I’m late, I’ve been on holiday.
Congratulations and well done to everyone with their quits. I really wish I had the time to reply to posts from whilst I’ve been away, but there’s a few too many to catch up on! So well done to all!
It’s lovely to be in a shiny new room. Whilst on my first ever smoke free holiday, I passed through 3 calendar months since my last ciggie. It was great not to be chained to them on holiday, and LOTS easier than I was expecting, which was a fantastic bonus, especially as I’d been having a horrible time at around 11 weeks.
I even bought 400 from duty free on the outbound journey for our neighbour who looks after the house and cat whilst we’re away. DH thought it was a terrible idea to buy them on the way out, but I said it would be a good test of my resolve. So I told him he could use any means necessary to stop me from lighting one should I even attempt to! Stating the obvious, I didn’t of course!
I'm not complacent, and I know I have to keep my guard up to deal with future challenges I know I will still face. But the strength to stay quit grows as every day goes by, and shaking off those tough times does get easier. This makes me feel like the worst of the worst could now be behind me - hope I'm right!
Best wishes to all.
