Never a puff again: the more days you are clean, the more you become strong

Posted in Staying quit 17 Jan 2018

Today marks exactly three months (but actually 93 days) since I am smoke free and began the new exciting journey. True: it was not easy if it were not for the support I got from my family, my children, my friends people I met here. Thank you all. I have never slipped up and I feel as if I am reborn. There were so many triggers and situations I was about to smoke and my strength was I repeat inside myself that I don't want to be that old Brook any more and I hate cigarette because it will eventually cost me everything. So why should I lose the battle with this cruel enemy in a friendly mask?

    You go girl !
    You are so right,, a cruel enemy in a friendly mask,, !!
    We let ourself think of smoking like a dear friend, or even a loved one. We even morn loosing them, when we start our quit, BUT, that dear friend was stealing our money, our time, and our health, and stabbing us in the back !
    Nothing there to miss, or want, or crave. Don't look back :)
