Well here I am at 300 days. I never thought I'd be here and be able to say it out loud !!!! Yes 300 days and without one sly smoke on the side that in past attempts I used to try and sweep under the rug like it never happened.
Now it seems those nagging craves that haunt us throughout the first six months are definitely in the past. However as a muso, the associations of a smoke in hand with a drink while laying a tune down can still creep up on me particularly after a few drinks. I somehow still feel incomplete or rather the experience of playing feels incomplete but I know this is an illusion from years of past association...the habit, and the reward thing. So I still have to be on guard and ready to throw any unrealistic thought like that out the door before it takes hold.
It's just a stupid habit that will take a lot more time to de-program yet.
Stay strong all...it's really worthwhile
