After many many many many tries at stopping smoking I am finally on the track of a final stop. On the 1 October 2014 I joined the non-smoking crew and I haven't had one ciggarette from that date, before everyone bombards me with congratulatory compliments on this massive achievement, I can not take all the credit for this magical turnaround it has been accomplished by the aid of champix (I completed the 12 weeks in December so now been champix free for 2 months) and the continual support from Mike and Liz and my Fagends meetings ever Friday, the support and advice of which have been invaluable to my stop smoking journey, when my nicotine starved sneaky brain was trying to make me smoke they were there to keep me on track and keep my goal and the path clear in my head. So now nearly at the end of 5 months smoke free I feel good I'm not complacent as I know that in the upcoming months there are a few situations I haven't yet done some free so there are going to be some mind triggers to work threw, summer barbecues, birthdays, holidays etc. I am so glad to be smoke free and when I start to romance that ciggie and think of all the good times I always go back to that image the one when I am standing outside freezing smoking stinking not enjoying that cig one bit but my addiction to nicotine made me do that and I never want to have that feeling again.
