Hi everyone! It's so good to come on here to find so many new and newish faces! I'm reading a lot of stories from people who are between four and ten weeks quit! Keep up the good work - you are in the victory lane now! I'm also seeing a lot of newbies asking questions about what is and isn't normal after quitting. Definitely keep asking questions. Live on these quit smoking pages, pre occupy yourself. Every minute of preoccupation is a minute that your brain is rewiring itself for success.
As I write this, I'm at 8 months and two days smoke free. I rarely think about cigarettes anymore. In fact, someone can be smoking right in front of me and it doesn't register in my brain that they are doing something that I used to love to do. I still think they are "delicious", but I don't want one. One thing I do notice is the cost. I feel sorry for people who shell out up to $13 usd per day for a couple packs of cigs. I can't believe I used to let money fly out of my bank account like that. I've been really sick. I have an autoimmune problem and I've even gone in to anaphylaxis recently from an allergy. So thankful I didn't have to add smoking to my concerns. If you are a praying person, please feel free to pray for me.
When I can, I will continue to check in. My body is quite tired these days, but t I still think about each of you as I know that you are marking the calendar off one day at a time with us. Please don't give up on you!
