Day 50

Seven weeks yesterday; I thought it was worth posting as it seems miraculous to those who know me well that I still have not had a smoke in all that time. Miraculous to me as well.

I'm at the stage now where I have to track how many days it's been; this doesn't take too long obviously but I don't know instantly now. I think I will soon stop counting!

I had the weirdest dream last night; I bought 10 fags from a petrol station, and they were all mixed in with sawdust and fake fags, part of a Government plot to get people to smoke less according to the cashier, who was Jeremy Clarkson. God know what a dream psychiatrist would make of that! Anyway I lit one up and then woke up relieved that I hadn't really smoked and that my quit was still on!

Thanks to all on this forum; I would have definitely caved in weeks 1-3 without you all!

50 days! I think thats worth posting about too Bear. Well done.

I've also stopped counting. Now the only thing i'm sure of is that I stopped on the 5th May. When I tell people who dont yet know...... I still have this tickly giggle of awe inside and I cant quite believe its me I'm talking about! You are right. Its miraculous. You and me are virtual miracles :)

Still havent worked out the meaning of your dream.....but thats largely coz I'm too busy trying to work out which word you had to edit :)

Once agan, very well done. I promise you that the time will start to wizz by now, and before you know it, it'll be 100 days. :D

Fantastic job AngryBear!!! You definitely know you're free when you're no longer actively counting days.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you!

Dippy, Shazza, Alex, Magwillz & Aitch, thank you very much :) ......Aitch, no, I'm not so angry these days, not as bad as week 1-2 anyway! And in answer to your sort of query Dippy Egg, the word was a.nalyist, obviously without the full-stop, they starred the first four letters, very odd, must be an automated thing :confused:

.....so you had to swop it for 'phsychiatrist' :)

I knew it would be something along those lines since the other week I wasnt allowed to tell you all that i'd had root can.al work done. I just left it with the asterix's and hoped you's would work it out.

Congrats again. :D
