I will be 10 months quit on Thursday (I am posting today because I wont be on Thursday)
I am pleased with my quit and I am confident that I wont smoke again. However I had a big trigger on Wednesday of last week when I was told that my job may be going to a shared service centre:mad: The whole of the finance function is being looked at and I am part of that function.I am so upset for a lot of the people I work with, people who are in a worse position than me and I will admit, after the news broke I was tempted to go outside the building and join the smokers. I didn't and I didn't want to for very long, it was a passing thought. I know that smoking will not change anything or make anything better so that is that.
It is our annual dinner dance on Friday and that is going to be a strange experience I wonder, if when the MD does his speech telling us how well the company is doing, he will mention Finance?? Probably not!
Anyway I am sure you dont all want to hear that. Just sharing my mile stone with you all and letting you know that even a shock like that and a big trigger is easily overcome the further along your quit you are. So yes all you newbies it does get easier. Have a nice evening xxx
