Wow! Fourteen days under my belt and strolling into week three.
I've struggled with quits in the past, but everything seems to have clicked this time. I've spent the last couple of days wondering why this whole process seems so easy this time, and I've reached the conclusion that it's the difference between wanting and needing.
On previous quits, there was still some 'want' in me; I still had the belief (the false illusion) that I was enjoying smoking. This time, I'd left those feelings behind long before I started the quit process. I knew I was getting no pleasure whatsoever from smoking, I despised it and was doing it purely out of need - to feed the monster! Whilst Champix isn't a silver bullet for many people, I believe it does crush the need - so if the want isn't there either, there is no reason left to smoke; the fight is over, gone, banished to the past.
Self-disgust replaced with self-pride, anxiety with calm. This really is the most valuable gift we can give ourselves!
Hope this makes sense to some of you
