I completed 70 days or 10 weeks today. I have been busy at work so haven't been on here much but am glad to see that everyone seems to be going good.
I'm a little stunned that I've made it and cannot believe that I haven't smoked for 10 weeks. I stopped the champix about 5 days ago and no ill effects. To be honest, I never felt entirely comfortable taking the champix because of all the negative stuff you read about it on the internet.
I still think about cigs every day and it remains a challenge some days not to simply give in but I haven't.... One thing I have learnt using the forum is that society still perceives smoking as a bad habit....i now understand it is more then a bad habit and I am now beginning to fully understand that it is an addiction. This was a bit of a lightbulb moment for me and I slowly stopped being so frustrated and critical of myself on my bad days.
I also read some of my old posts today and I can honestly say that things have improved but I'm not out of the woods yet...
Thank you everyone, this forum is an absolute lifeline, xo
