Ive just reached a 3month milestone then had some nasty craves. However am making it through and just realized how important those who quit close to same time you have are. Another here, Indigo who is only a bit behind me, shared difficulties like our hitting the 3month mark @ same time as Christmas & New Year challenges. There are unique challenges and advantages to that.
The challenge was those are a lot of obstacles at once. The advantage, i think we both wanted that 3 month badge as much as air to breathe.
As i read this fellow quit timed like mine, i realized we could be runners in a race together. We are ALL in this together, but the ones running closest to you will be easier to hear/relate.
That said we need everyone's stories to help us along and so we can help along.
Those ahead know where we're going and help us avoid pitfalls. They inspire us and make us want to be where they are while encouraging us to take it one day at a time & NOPE never take another puff.
Those behind us help us by showing us how far we've come and that we can repay a bit of what we were taught. Plus it just feels Really good to see another's progress and know you are a part of that, like someone was for yours.
Making it over the hill of one of the "icky 3s" am happy to say i couldnt have done it w/out all of you.
Y'ALL ARE IMPORTANT IN EACH OTHER'S QUITS !
So appreciate all who have helped me and let me try and help them. Thank you.
