5 months

Can't believe it's now 5 months since I quit. The first month seemed to drag but the rest have flown by. I have more good days than bad now, still think about smoking now and then but I think it's more nostalgic than craves. How we glorify smoking, see it as a friend when it's our enemy, such a hold it has on us, but it also feels so good to be free.

And no matter how many people told us this before we quit, it never sunk in. At least with me.

Jean, sorry to take so long to comment - congratulations. Our quit dates are very similar and I think that we are both racing towards 6 months. Like you I am feeling really good and so much better than early in my quit :)
