3 Months Free

Posted in Quit experiences 02 Feb 2018

Hello everyone, today I'm celebrating being smoke free for 3 hole months, it is more like 3 years to me and I'm ashamed to say that I still long for a smoke, it feels like a nostalgia for a lost friend (I know thats stupid, cigarrets were never my friends!)

Nevertheless, I'm holding strong, some days I only think about smoking as something of the past, I dont even crave one, but others are more difficult, I'm looking forward to my next goal; 100 days.

    I'm coming up to week 15. I really wanted this so I'm not suffering too much. Sure I think about it from time to time, but I don't crave it. Especially when this woman at work comes in from a smoke break ... reeking of butts and loneliness. Nope. Don't miss that at all.

    Flamenco; 3 months ! That's Great :)
    We all understand the feeling.. What worked for me, was really letting myself see just how stupid, and useless smoking was. Admit to yourself that you were just a slave to a cigarette, and you can let go of any idea of missing, craving, or wanting one. Don't let it be something you can't have, make it something you don't want. It is really just a mind game, and you can do it too :)

    Thanks Red, I know, and you are so right when you mention that smoking makes us stupid.
