Another week almost done

Seriously in to my quit, and doing ok!

What I have realised is the fact that, a lot of my quitting is adapting and excepting that my pattern of life has changed. Indoingso I now am very very use to no smoking on the way from work, mornings, meals, the list goes on

So hoping over the coming weeks it gets easier, for me:)

But doing ok,

  • There are many articles on the internet about the making and/or breaking of habits. All kinds of habits - not just smoking.

    Most suggest we can form a new habit in 21 to 28 days - though other research points to a period of 66 days.

    I suspect the time differs from person to person - and the nature of the habit.

    If you are interested in reading more - just type "how long to acquire a new habit" into 'Google'.

    From personal experience - I'm surprised that I can now tap away at my computer keyboard without having a cigarette. Eight weeks ago I would have thought that was impossible. The bonus is I no longer have to 'hoover' my keyboard to remove all the bits of tobacco !

    Perhaps some of the 'Penthouse' residents will confirm that breaking with an old habit doesn't remain a struggle for ever.

  • You have immense wisdom, Tracey, as well as strength and I'm certain your posts inspire many, many other quitters. :)

    You're tacking this journey in the most fantastic style and there's no doubt that you're heading straight for the Penthouse.

  • Well done Tracey,you seemed to have learnt by your mistakes and are really storming through now....really pleased for you:D

  • Ditto Tracey!!

    that is why I haven't been here much, I feel like it keeps me thinking about smoking too much. ;)
