11 weeks

11 weeks today. As some of you might expect, I am feeling a little bit grumpy - not much, just a little bit, and less than before.

All the routine daily habits of smoking: first thing in the morning, after meals, before doing something, after doing something, before thinking about doing something! etc. All these daily triggers, habits and routines have completely disappeared. I think of smoking maybe once or twice a day, tops, and it hardly ever occurs to me to actually have a smoke.

So, new quitters, hard though it might be to believe, it won't be that long before the incessant thoughts and cravings have virtually disappeared.

On No Smoking Day on 13 March you (New Year quitters) will have been quit for about the same amount of time as I have today. You will be able to say to the flood of new quitters coming onto the site at that time the same things I am saying to you now!

Keep going, it really is worth it. :):):)

Congratulations Biggrin!

I've noticed that the grumbling has dwindled to nothing of late, you're obviously doing really well. But I hadn't realised how far you'd come!

11 weeks, that's massive mate, big well done!

It truly is a lot easier than it was in the beginning isn't it?

You are such a support to everyone on here, and I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating!

Massive well done Biggrin, 11 weeks is just great, the weeks just seen to be whizzing by now don't they, compared to the 1st week which seemed to last about 100 years!!

You should be well proud, not only of your quit but you've also been a positive contributor to threads on this forum giving advice and support and you're an inspiration to others earlier on in their quit!

Now get the kettle on and squish up as I'll be into month 3 tomorrow to check up on you and Greg!!!

Stay strong
