As of 6:00pm this evening I reached the Month 2 room. 31 days. It's going well, although I still generally feel I'm missing something much of the time and having to take deep long breaths. I think that missing is the habit, as I don't feel tetchy or fidgety, but I still have a sense it would be easy to smoke. Maybe that never goes away for some people. I have saved £300 which helps; that's a 20 a day £9 a day habit. I'm still taking the champix, but think this coming Friday might be my last prescription; that was my downfall two years ago. I know what to expect this time though. And, I meeting milestones and trigger points are not triggering me. Long drives without having to pull off motorways every hour, alcohol, stresses at work and home, taking breaks without a fag (that's a really difficult one for me). I know I have to be vigilant still. If I become too laid back, I think there's a chink in my armour.
​An added incentive is the 10k run I've registered to do in mid-July. That's quite a challenge as I've never run that far. I've really got to pull something out of the bag for this, but I will complete it, even if I have to crawl. My breathing is so much easier now and I just would not be able too run any distance whilst still smoking.
