WOOHOO....my phone sent a notification last night from my smoke free app...holy cow 10 months smoke free is truly unbelievable to me. I enjoyed smoking and for 35 years or so it was my 'go to' for many many things/emotions in my life. Anyone that knows me personally (including myself) would have said NO WAY will she quit smoking. I proved them wrong and yes, I'm proud of myself.
Still having some cravings here & there, mostly when I'm stressed or bored...nothing I can't deal with, but let's admit it...it would be EASIER if they would just go away completely. Mr. Nico doesn't want me to forget I guess. Also still a bit off as far as my moods, but that too has gotten better and I know will continue to improve! I've gained a fair amount of weight, but some of that is just me...been battling my weight all of my life, some of it is quitting smoking and in my mind some of it is ME using quitting as an excuse to eat whatever the heck I wanted!! Will have to get going on reducing the pounds now!
Everyone's journey is different so I decided early on to read as much as I could about those journey's because bits & pieces of each of them....matches something I've gone through and in the beginning what I could anticipate possibly going through.
For everyone just starting hang in there...it really does improve & get easier...for all that posted their journey's to help others and themselves...THANKS....you continue to inspire me!!!
