Nearly 2 months done

Hi guys :)

Well here I am on the cusp of completing 2 months quit (Saturday to be precise).

To be honest it has been tougher to quit this time than before, not sure if that is an omen of good or ill, but time will tell. I have struggled with craves, something which i haven't really had on previous quits. I have been up and down emotionally, and I mean really up and really down. Anxiety and stress has made it feel like my head is going to fall off at times.

But here I am. I feel healthier, I am sleeping through the night for the first time in ages (still knackered though!), I feel less anxious and stressed the longer I am quit (the great paradox of smoking!), not sure I am wealthier as I haven't saved the money but I must be! Sure I still think about having a fag, but there is no compelling reason for me to have one. I will not smoke again.

Anyway, I hope today is a good day for all you good people. Keep up the good fight.

Cheers

Jim :)

PS Sorry for the rambling post, too much coffee already this morning!

    You've ridden the emotional rollercoaster in a truly positive and accomplished manner and I am sure it won't be long before the good days outweigh the bad days.
