Another month gone by

Today I find myself surprised by the fact that another month has gone by. In the early days of my quit each hour would seem like a week and I remember envying the people on here who were celebrating each month of quitting and wondering if I would ever get to that point. The last time I posted on here was the eve of 4 months and here I am now at 5 months. Ironically this morning I had a craving however I think that's more to do with the fact that my hands are so cramped from crocheting that I had to give it a rest and my brain immediately reverted to what I used to do with my hands. I'm pleased to say that I resisted that temptation thanks to thinking back to the early days of my quit and realising I didn't want to have to do that again!

And now I'm standing here looking at you! Congratulations! Hearing you say you had a craving makes me feel better, I'm six weeks in now and although definitely not as bad still craving, it's kind of reassuring that it still happens from time to time. Well Done Lily. :)
