200 days!

Well, it's 201 days, but I finally made it to my next big milestone! As many of you know I haven't been without struggle on this quit and I still am finding it a huge struggle. But each day I get through without smoking is an achievement and the longer this quit goes on, the less likely I am to throw it away!

I'm really not sure what else there is to say other than THANK YOU to everyone that supported me through a really tough few months of my life and without you all, I know I'd have turned to the cigs!

I'm not going to mention any of the doom and gloom in this thread. I think the next big milestone is a year, which I think will really confirm my non-smoking status.

:D

  • Wow 200 days what an achievement. Next stop the penthouse

  • 200 days is brilliant and well done you for hanging on and not giving in. I think Im going through the same rough patch you went through... im on 182 days, also cold turkey.. so maybe its just the way our bodies are responding - new neuron pathways being synthesized in our brains. Would be so easy to reach for a smoke but I wont do it.. and seeing you ahead of me and still managing is a huge encouragement.

  • So glad you held on Lewis- I know you've been under a huge amount of pressure and it speaks volumes for your grit and determination that you didn't succumb. :)

    Many, many congratulations on your 201 days. I have no doubt at all that you are going all the way to the Penthouse now. :D

  • Hya, Lewis drum roll, fantastic I know you've struggled at times, as we all do, but wow brilliant.

    So pleased for you :):):cool::D

  • Thats incredible :) Well done xxxxx

  • Thanks everyone! Feeling really positive today and I kind of feel like the struggle is over. It's a relief to feel this way, because my first few weeks were fantastic, then suddenly I reached a really sudden stage of wanting to smoke again, and I hated it!

    I keep thinking that smoking is the old me, the depressed me that doted on nicotine to get me through the day. Not anymore. I've seen disgusting pictures of me smoking and I look dreadful; pale, red-eyed and dull.

    Never will I go back to that.

    Lewis.....well done on getting through! You and I are about the same time quit and something you wrote struck a chord with me...

    ....you wrote "I kind of feel like the struggle is over." This is exactly how I feel. In fact, about 15 minutes ago (before I had read your post) sent a pm to someone in which I said " I feel my quit is over now....I am a non-smoker." Isn't that strange! Good, but strange!
