Day 14 - Boom!

Morning Gang,

Day 14 today, had a great weekend. Had a fair few drinks on Saturday and smoking barely even crossed my mind.

I haven’t posted for a couple of days, but I’m still going strong! I’m starting to wonder if it may have helped not being on here for a few days, don’t get me wrong, this place is great, but sometimes I think it can cause you to unnecessarily think about smoking. Either that or I have just progressed more with my quit. In my first smoke-free week I was glued to these forums LOL

Anyway, I can honestly say that since I woke up on Day 11, I feel so different. It has really been fairly easy going (touch wood – don’t want to speak too soon!) I don’t even WANT to smoke, let alone NEED to smoke, my mind seems to have now accepted this.

I DO still think about smoking, but its definitely not a crave, just a thought of my previous life. For example, on the way to work, I would always light up a smoke at a certain point of my journey. I got to that point of my journey this morning and actually reached over to grab a cig, of course there were no cig’s there! It actually brought a smile to my face and it just goes to show how hard it is to break a routine. But far from a craving...

How is everyone else doing this glorious Monday morning? Everyone have a good weekend?
