8 months today!


Just an update from Fi,

Well what do you know, 8 months today since I kicked that lowlife Mr Silk Cut outta my life!!! Sorry I have not posted much of late, I haven't been very well (chest infection, much, much better now though). I also find myself thinking less and less about cigs and only really think about smoking when I come on the Forum. I do check in now and then and it's so good to see so many people being successful in their quit journey and also to see the never ending support you guys and girls give.

As many of you know I have found this quit journey relatively easy, sorry! (Just this one I might add, the other 99 unsuccessful attempts I didn't find so easy obviously). I have had feelings of low and lost, insomnia, but that's about it. I ventured into this quit with a quiet, steely determination, and more importantly a different mindset. If only we could bottle the formula eh?

If you really really want to quit, you can, you will, just don't smoke, not ever, not one puff ever.

Thanks so much to everyone for the support and encouragement shown to me:)

And to all the newbies, you can, and will do it:)

Fi x
