Plodding on (Day 16)

Pleased to say I've made it this far. I think things are starting to seem more 'normal' now, well for most of the time at least. I can now actually enjoy a meal, coffee etc without having to finish it off by going outside for a cigarette, I've stopped thinking about smoking at these trigger point times.

I'm now finding that I can get through most of the day without even thinking about smoking and it's such a good feeling.

It's still not plain sailing yet though because when a craving does sneak up on me (I hate that word but can't think of a better one) it seems so much more intense than the ones I experienced in the first few days. I'm still very much on my guard and I suppose I will be for quite a while - no giving in to a moment of weakness when I know I don't need to.

Every day's another milestone so I'll keep going.:)

  • Good luck..... The cravings are less often but sometimes are really hard ones. It's a sign the nicodemon is giving his/her last fights!

    Keep walking keep going keep free!
