The start of week 3

Today is the start of my 3rd week smoke free, and I have been rather surprised at how easy I have found it to just stop.

I would have thought it would have been harder for me given the mental associations of my smoking (stress, socialising & booze) and I have still been stressed, I have still socialised, and I definitely have still been drinking.

Yet, I have had no desire to smoke in any of these situations, I even like the smell of smoke (when one of my friends has been out and comes back in).

  • I think I felt after a few weeks that I thought it was easier to stop than I thought.

    I think I got too confident and thought I'll just have one to see what it was like.

    The puff was disgusting and I was so disappointed with myself.

    So back on the quit and NOPE.

    Nasty Nic can be so devious.

    We'll done to you and keep strong whatever

  • Hi Jenny, glad it's going so well, just be wary though and keep your guard up especially when ur out, you may be one of he lucky ones and not get any craves at all which is brilliant for you! Xx

    This is great news Jenny :) I'm really glad that your quit seems to be going so well and you're not struggling.

    Keep an eye open for nasty Nic and don't forget that he can sneak up when you least expect it, but most importantly of all enjoy that feeling of freedom and the positive attitude that's surrounding you at the moment! Xxx
