Strange thing this quit business!

Well here I am 55 days into my quit although I've stopped counting them now.

Quitting really is a strange business though, at least it is for me.

I feel absolutely ecstatic not to be smoking. I physically feel so much better and have no desire whatsoever to rush out and buy cigarettes ever again.

I'm doing my best to just get on with my life as if I've never smoked, trying to forget about it completely and I've even learned to put up with and ignore the odd little cravings that still appear every now and again.

I think I've reached the coming to terms stage of accepting that smoking's no longer part of my life because I want more than anything not to be a smoker again.

I think this is going to be my biggest test yet.:confused:

Hey Linda, huge congratulations and well done you on reaching 55 days, that is terrific, you must be so proud. I too am in that frame of mind from yesterday that smoking is no longer part of my life and coming to terms with it, we will get there in accepting it, well done again!


Wow Linda...out of the heart.. So nice as if the sun has just came up.

Exactly that feeling convinced me that I will never smoke again. I think I have said it but yes all happy beginnings are disguised as painful endings.

So true.. this quitting thing is an amazing journey.. Painful, body and soul .. But so lovely on the other side
