It's been a while since I last posted and great to see so many new contributors in the community too sharing your journeys advice and experiences.
For me it's now 9 months smoke free today!!! I'm still thrilled with each new month under my belt and now having two or three days pass regularly without even a thought of smoking is something I never thought would be possible.
If you've failed once or lots of times like me, don't be hard on yourself and treat each stumble as a practice run for the real thing. Once I couldn't get past 3 days...then it was two and four weeks. I made 4 months once and stupidly thought one smoke wouldn't hurt. For a while there I used to curse the desire to smoke after being good for soooo long. When will these damned urges ever leave me alone !?!?
Well they do...slowly but surely they tire and haunt us less and less with each passing day.
I'm not out of the woods...i don't think any long time smoker ever is, but I can see over the horizon now and with diligence and awareness I believe I'm on the way to freedom from this horrid habit once and for all.
Good luck to everyone else travelling this journey...
