I'm still here:D

Hello all! Hope everyone is good!

I've been away a while on my holidays, and I've come back smoke free! Can't believe it, super proud of myself!

I had my moments out there, sitting with drinks in the sun, around smokers, and my will power was clinging by a thread but I didn't have one!

In previous quits 9 times out of ten it would be after a holiday that id failed in my quitting journey! Scratched that hurdle of my list! And the best part was not running to the smoking section for dear life after I got off the plane! :D

I still have a passing crave. Doesn't last long and is easy (dare I say it) to push it aside. I still have bad days but the good is definitely outweighing! I feel good, and I feel confident that this will be my quit that sticks:)

  • Wow Laura it's a huge thumbs up from me, doing so very well my lovely, avoiding your triggers is a turning of the corner to success..

    Just keep going

  • Having successfully wrestled one of your main trigger points to the floor I suspect you're well & truly on the road to permanent freedom now. :D

    Well done that girl! And very glad indeed that you enjoyed your holiday. :)

  • Well done Laura if you can do this so early in your quit then other triggers should be easy to overcome! x

  • Thanks so much guys! :) it was super hard but I made it! I think it will always be a trigger for me, I'm not sure if it will ever go away, but perhaps I'm still early in my quit. Saying that I know I don't want to smoke and I know I can beat the cravings now! It's just passing thoughts here and there! BBQ tonight another trigger, not a cigarette in sight! One month here I come!

    P.s max, the smell yuk! :eek:I used to find it strangely satisfying especially in my first week of my quit, I moved away from it the other day! and I got the eye roll and typical ex smoker comment hehe! was rather proud because that said smoker used to be me!

  • Brilliant. Well done!


  • Well done Laura for not giving in on Holiday. Great non having to run for the smoking area isn't it :)
