133 Days

Last time I posted I'd done 5 weeks... 36 days!!!!

Well at 133 days now, there's no more cough. No more wheezing. No more feeling rough. No more thinking about cigarettes every 30 mins.

To anyone just starting out that thinks it's never going to get easier, well it really, really does. I go weeks now without even thinking about it. People I know who smoke go for a cigarette and I don't even bat an eye. I sometimes think later, "oh, Dave went out for a fag earlier and I didn't even notice".

It's exactly like anything in life that you don't do anymore. Obviously you can remember it, but you don't crave it all day every day. Like memories of being a kid and playing games. You can think back to it, but it doesn't impact on your life at all.

It's also amazing just how fast the time goes after a while. Before you know it, it's just flying by. At first it seems like so far away to get to several months quit, but it really does just fly by.

Good luck everyone!
