Starting week seven

Just started week seven. I've read this forum during some low times and received lots of encouragement from it, so thank you all for that. I seem to have turned some sort of a corner but I know I'm not out of the woods yet although I'm beginning to believe it when I tell myself that all I've got to do is keep carrying on carrying on. I still have some strong triggers but they only last for seconds as if they are a bit embarrassed for showing themselves. They certainly don't come with the confidence they were showing a few weeks back.

Here's to resolve and a smoke free future.

Hi Paul,

I'm only 1 week, so you are doing brilliantly. Keep remembering the reasons why you wanted to quit in the first place. Kudos to everyone who stops this filthy addiction, but I do believe some people genuinely find it harder than others.

Whatever you do, DON'T SMOKE. Just DON'T. You've come too far for that.
