Today sort of crept up on me! After the 1st month, the next 3 flew by. No longer am I chained to addiction. I am free! I feel great, I look amazing, I can go out and not be tempted! Looking back it all seems so easy but I know it wasn't. It took commitment and patience but even more than that it took working on how I viewed smoking in my life. I had to be brutally honest with myself and it paid off. Smoking was killing me, it was determining how I lived my life and even who I would spend time with. It did all this while I felt sick and smelly and ultimately HATED the way it tasted and made me feel. I was brainwashed by addiction to believe smoking was the answer to stress but I have come to find out it was actually a MAJOR cause of it. After that first month, my stress and anxiety levels were at the lowest I could ever remember them being. I was sleeping better, handling work better and ultimately much more joyful and bright. In fact, everything seemed brighter as time kept going by.
I quit smoking because my husband and I were ready to start a family and once I felt confident that I wouldn't fall back into the addiction, we started trying! I am beyond happy to announce that we are expecting a healthy little one at the end of August! My life as a smoker is over and I couldn't be more thankful!
I encourage you all to stick with it, read posts on here and even read Allen Carr's Easyway. It is what made this attempt a success when I failed so many times before.
