Day One

Well, it's Day One of my second six months of not smoking, enroute to the proverbial Penthouse.

In contrast to my first Day One, this one is not characterized by strong cravings to smoke. I did over-indulge in cookies today left over from a dinner party last night, but that's about it.

But, just like my first Day One, I'm still taking this whole thing One Day At A Time. Keeping my guard up, cautiously optimistic, and quite determined.

Whenever I get the so-called romantic, nostalgic longing for a cigarette (honestly, can anyone tell me what's romantic about inhaling smoke, stinking up your breath, causing your health to plummet and your clothes to stink?), I remind myself:

One cigarette will never be enough.

    They are only romantic to the uninformed person. I started to smoke because I thought it was the coolest most romantic thing ever..... now I see it for what it is, a smelly addiction that invites serious disease. Ughh.....

    Congrats to your 6 months, awesome! :)

  • Well done DGee, I'm into my 6th month too. Strange, isn't it? I'm still not sure how I got here! x
