Into the 4th month :)

I never thought I would ever be able to write this post and ultimately I don't even know what have I done different other than I did not give up and kept going.

Quitting is exhausting and a rotten process, I hate(ed) every single bit of it but it does get easier as the time goes by.

My next step, I am going to try to spend less time in the forum - I know it sounds selfish - but I need to allow myself to forget about the cigarettes and the forum really brings me back to it.

Thank you very much to each and every one of you for helping me along my journey, I would not have been able to do it without your help.

Overall, its a hell of a ride and I am happy I took it! Stay strong all!!! xxx

  • Great job mmaya. I think it's a smart decision to spend less time on this forum if you think that's going to help you :) . But maybe coming back once or twice, and noticing that you don't feel the need to smoke anymore can also give you alot of confidence:) Also, thanks for all your kind words and advice. Good luck!

  • Thanks Brien!! Much appreciated! I'm still checking the forum everyday.... I just can't stop myself! It's like my new addition lol.

    I'm having a very stressful day today...having to remind myself of my reasons to quit back in September... There's always going to be that one day that is impossible to go past.

    ....I wish I could go to sleep now :)

  • I must say reaching your 4th month is quite an achievement. Well done! And I agree with not spending so much time on here. In the beginning I was absolutely addicted to the forum. It was my little life raft. But it did mean I spent all my waking hours concentrating on the quitting process. I've also decided to just get on with life a bit more now, although I have to say once again that I could never have got this far without all these lovely people here. I think this forum is wonderful. I wonder just how many people have been helped through using it.

  • Absolutely Becky, it comes to prove that there's still good in people.

  • Mmaya ... you can be so proud on your achievement and we will miss you.... But I know you will always keep us in the back of your mind.

    Stay strong on the rest of your journey and believe in yourself...I have learned that as from 4 months the wow is gone and you are almost on your own although this forum was and is always there for us....Thank you for your lovely support and know that I appreciated every nice comment or post...

    Congratulations once again...!!
