1 Month today

Just a quick post to say I've actually reached my 1 month smoke free milestone.

It hasn't been as difficult as I thought although I have had my 'moments', not too many though and I didn't give in.

I'm hoping that by this time next month I will be able to say that I have the upper hand where my quit is concerned and I won't have to try as hard with it as I sometimes still have to do - I didn't realise that I had allowed smoking to have such a hold over me.

I now know that I will not smoke again, I've got used to the idea so all I need now is for my brain (or what's left of it) to accept this.

  • Well done Evie

    Evie! Huge congratulations! I have to say I am delighted for you, you have done so well. That is a milestone to celibrate. A lot goes on in that first month all the adjusting to being a non smoker and first triggers etc. Well done and a pat on the back from me. xx

  • Brilliant job Evie!

    Alex.

  • Nice going Evie, very very pleased for you :D

  • Well done Evie, great stuff, especially after your blip. Bring on month 2! :D

  • That's great news. Sooooo well done!

    In military terms, prepare your defences when the enemy are out of sight. Don't wait until the last minute when they attack!

    You know that a weak moment will occur somewhere on the horizon so prepare for it now, when you're in complete control

    Mantra's works for me, as you know and I make each trigger a personal battle against an ugly nico-demon with yellow teeth, smelly breath and wrinkled skin who's trying to force upon me an expensive stick of poison that will open the doors for more demons....those of the terrifying forces of the Cancer Legions.

    Continue good luck. X

  • Well, that last post made me smile Phil - it's good to have you back again.

    I'm still here, plodding my way towards the 25th when I will have reach my 2 month milestone.

    Is it getting easier or am I just getting used to it, I'm not really sure but I can say that my every waking thought is no longer dominated by fond memories of smoking. Yes, they do pop up every now and then but I have absolutely no intentions of giving in to them.

    Onwards and upwards, and remember I'm only 3 cigarettes behind you.
