Most of my new friends are non smokers. I explained to my smoking friends I need to keep my physical distance for now. They seem to be ok with it. I believe changing my life to keep from not busting is ok for now, I need my strength to say NOPE
As silly as I feel sometimes I know this too will end, the smoking thought, they are sometimes quiet, but mostly active. Sometimes I find I am constantly saying shut up. Today I realised if I continue to sat that I know I am still smoke free. Its a long winding road, but its my journey and I am slowly getting there. I want to reach the non smoking ever life.
I seem to be emotionally tearful a lot, I am assuming this to be part of the letting go, I walk in the mornings and years flow freely, I need wipers on my sunglasses. I writing to ask if this is a part of my quit.
I thought I could quit without support, not for me. I have wanted to do this since I started 25 years ago. But it took a good time and direct medical advice for me to try. 25 days smoke free and I have the cigs all but lit. I have weird stomach sensation but its better than smoking.

Soon I hope to be my own support, I still keep away from smokers friends choose to be aware of my weakness. Best wishes to you all, have a smoke free life.
Have been reading on quit smoke sites, I arm myself with possible support by reading around the day I am at, I thought today would be a lot calmer, but for me its not, although I am a non smoker I will always be just for today. I want to never have another smoke again, but its up to me. I am looking to make new non smoking friends, keeping my past smoking friends at a distance. Yes it gets lonely...
I have been reading a lot of past blogs, the best advice I can work out would have to be keep busy, exercise, water plenty and do not have the first puff, read the blogs and blog to your needs. Have a great day, everyone.
12 days and still feeling ups and downs, so I will increase my exercises, keep busy, drink water, shower more often, these are helping my quit.
Hi all, day 11 and moving on with myself, still want to smoke, old life hard to leave behind. I am thinking about how much time I spent smoking, planning, health, wealth and not supporting others. I use to say that's good. Now I know how hard it was for them. I have read smoking numbers are down, how great is that, I am working at adding me to that. Thanks for the support knowledge most of all th...
