Day 25! Mixed feelings!

Evening everyone :-) i'm on day 25 and things are feeling a bit odd. . . On one hand i keep thinking omg, i've gone a whole 25 days without a cigarette! Then i also think is that all? 25 days? It feels like forever since i last smoked! It's almost as though it was a different me that used to smoke. . . It's all feeling a bit surreal lol. I'm so glad i did this and this is gonna be the best year of my life! :-)

  • Not even tempted :-)

    I've been in plenty of situations in the last 3 weeks where i could have had a cig and i'm not even tempted. Even buying cigs for somebody else didn't trigger any cravings or pangs of regret :-) i work with someone who's trying to quit and she has 1 cig in the morning then uses an ecig for the rest of the day. She offered me a try of the ecig and i even turned that down. I read the book a few times myself before i had the balls to finish it so maybe all the reading and rereading made the message sink in good and proper :-)

  • Hi Ju

    Don't forget the "happiness time warp worm hole thingy" theory!

    (I think that's what it's called!)

    In all the excitement when I first quit the time absolutely disappeared before my very eyes!

    It was like David Blane meets Dr. Who :)

    Before I knew it I was weeks and weeks down the line....then as quickly as I realised time was going quickly ..... it began to drag soooooo slowly it made my head hurt as my brain was waking up to the fact that .. that's it .... nothing is going to happen ..... life is still going on so you better hitch up yer britches and get on with it.

    Either way Ju.....it's all good.......it's all gravy :D

    Take care

  • Hats off to you juju I'm 21 days into my quit and not to sure how I would be if I had to buy some fags for someone as at the moment I still enjoy going out with some of the smokers at work :( but don't enjoy the smell on my clothes when I get in, do hope that this is a phase that will pass.

    Quit date: 3/1/13

    25 days is a big ole chunk of time, soooo proud of you!

  • Day 26, you are going great guns Julie, sometimes you just know that this is the quit that will stick and I feel that for you with this quit. I can feel how determined and happy you are about it. Well done!:)
