Apparently I first signed up to this site in 2014, I quit for 17 days in that attempt, according to my posts at the time.
I have tried to quit a number of times over my 35 years of smoking and if anyone asked me I would say I have never got past 7 days, but there you go, I did and my addict brain has reduced the recollection of that time from over 17 days to only 3 or 4.
With all the messages out there regarding quitting, I think the "quitting is hard", "nicotine is the hardest drug to quit" message is what I have absorbed, why? It may be hard, but it is definitely possible.
Yesterday I was thinking of my school friends, the ones I started smoking with as a teen and guess what, over the years 95% of them have successfully quit. I am sure they found it a challenge at the time, but they did it and have not relapsed and are super happy they no longer smoke.
So what makes me so special? What makes me the one that can't do it? Nothing, only the story I am telling myself about whether I can succeed. Of course I can, my peers have.
Day 2 feeling positive, no strong cravings yet. I even had a cup of coffee this morning.
