Beautiful Day

The sun is out, the sky is clear and a lovely blue. It's cool but not too cold. Don't you just love beautiful autumn days like this? I do.

I thought about my quit this morning whilst walking the dog and realised that although I still think about cigs a lot, it's never with a feeling of want anymore. I realised that I feel so many things like .....

I feel a great big smile spread across my face whenever I realise that I'm free

I feel that, if my quit feels this positive now, then I have a lot of confidence now that I WILL get to the penthouse and beyond

I feel massive regrets (pointless I know) that I was so utterly stupid to risk my health the way I did for so long

I feel real pride in myself, which I don't think I've ever felt before.

I feel relief that I no longer have to appear weak in front of non smokers when I have to keep nipping out for one

I feel better smelling

I feel air deep down in my lungs

I feel richer (much much, I can't believe how much money I threw away!)

But most of all I feel so so happy

I hope everyone is having a day as good as I'm having

    Yes, it is an absolutely beautiful day and your post has put the biggest smile on my face.

    We WILL and we CAN do this,

  • Molly, thank you for this post . You are right it is a beautiful day and we are free and we are going to make it, but I had a bad night and felt really miserable until I read this. x

  • You're so right mrsm we are definitely going to get there.

    There'll be so many of us reaching 1 year of freedom within just a few weeks of one another. I can't wait!

    I hope you're having a wonderful day :)

    Brilliant post:). You've exactly put into words some of the things I feel about quitting:)

    And I too regret all the unsuccessful quits.

  • It is a fabulous day! What a great Christmas present we've given ourselves by quitting, thanks for sharing Molly :-)

  • My word Mols!

    That's a bit spooky!

    I was out on the bike today and feeling bloody great to be honest and thought I'm gonna make a "Things I'm Grateful For" thread ....

    ..looks like you beat me to it! :p

    So glad you are feeling so positive, waft it about a bit!!

    (ooo err missus!)

    Thanks Fi, I'm blushing now x

    Thanks Magwillz. I've just felt really great all day and wanted to tell someone. The weird thing when you quit, non smokers don't really totally get the downs of quitting but they don't really understand the highs either, at least the ones around me don't. You guys all do though.

    This place is just so awesome :D

  • :D

    What a lovely positive post Molly to read

    thank you for sharing

    :)

    only addicts can understand that having the freedom and choosing not to give into that side every day is just amazing

    today is going to be another beautiful smokefree one

    :)
