4 months today

How time has passed since I posted on day 1. Not the easiest of journeys but I'm still on the road to success. I don't know if time makes us complacent but I know some days I really want to smoke and it really does take all my determination not to have a puff. The strange thing is that I really hate the smell now whenever I'm with my smoking friends so I can sit there with them thinking how glad I am I no longer smell like them, but on the other hand still want to join them sometimes. Mr nic is a demon he certainly does not let go so easily. I do know though I would hate to go back to day 1 and go through that dreadful 1st week again, so I keep that thought in mind and stay strong.

    Honestly, i wish i had managed to remember that. I gave in and now smoke again, im preparing for my next quit as we speak.

    Stay strong, there will be times you want a smoke - but they will get much more infrequent as time goes on.

  • Hello Spanish,

    Really pleased you still sticking to NOPE. I know it's frustrating how at four months we still get urges at times but you're right compared to the early days it's so much easier. Don't go back ever you're doing great x x

  • Great going Spanish. Although I'm not pleased for you, in a perverse way I'm relieved that as we are matching each other in our new status, I'm not the only one being pulled towards the wrong direction by this demon. Great going.

  • Well done Spanish we are so proud if your achievement, keep it up you will get there in no time
