I can't believe I'm still going strong!!

Sometimes it hard to believe that I made it this far! Those first few weeks were, by far, the hardest challenge of my will power that I have ever faced! It was NOT easy! Some days I still get urges and taste.. but then I remind myself of all the negatives surrounding smoking and then I phrase myself for my accomplishments!

This may be awful.. but I do tell myself if I still get urges in 20yrs then i can allow myself to smoke again since by then my body will self heal almost 100% of all and any smoking damage that it may have now! I'm hoping I won't want a cigg in 20yrs though ;)

My biggest fear is the summer!! I haven't had a beer/drink since I quit, or even hung around a smoker.. so I'm afraid of the challenges that the summer may bring!! I hope I'm strong enough!!! I have faith in myself though! :)

Started smoking at age 14! Smoked about 15 smokes a day for just about 20yrs.

Quit on November 11th - Used e-Cigg for 2wks - then cold turkey since!

  • I agree. Like any trigger point it may feel a bit odd for the first few times but it will soon feel perfectly normal.

    You've done SO well. :)

  • How wonderful to have this length of quit under your belt am sure all will be fine for you. You sound prepared mentally for the summer:).

    Huge well done :)

  • I can believe you've done it because you are obviously strong minded and determined, using an ecig for 2 weeks and then just ditching it for CT is pretty good going I'd say ;)I too think you will be fine by the summer, you will be so far along in your quit it would be madness to cave in then, you hopefully won't even think about fags by then xx

  • You will be fine I am sure. I live in Spain where drinking and smoking is a way of life, I have been around smokers from day 1 and at first it was hard to be out socialising and not smoking, but in a very short while the smell of others smoking became offensive and I realised I was glad I quit.
