Well it is 6 months today that I quit smoking. I still get out of the blue cravings but they are easier to handle now. What I find strange is when I'm out somewhere and I smell smoke, from someone smoking, it smells good. But if a smoker gets close to me I can't stand the smell on them.
Also I have always been a patient person. But since I quit smoking people have felt my wrath. I have no problem telling people off now. I warned my family in the beginning of my quit. They have been pretty good. Once in a while my husband forgets. I remind him that I have 40 years of anger inside. In the past if I got mad I would just bite my tongue and go outside and have a smoke. I'm sure things will settle down eventually.
I am one of the people that has not had an easy quit. But I feel better than I did 6 months ago. I have more energy and feel healthier. So the struggle is worth it.
To all of you that are just starting this journey stay strong.
