If you are reading , I believe it is right to assume that you are either looking for real life experiences after quitting or about to quit and getting mentally prepared for the journey.
Either way, I want to happily share some insights from my journey of 4 months without a single puff.
15 September 2018, I quit cold turkey.
It was difficult at first but things started to get easy for me after about 3weeks.
Now I am 4 month away from cigarette and my brain has been completed reprogrammed to not think about smoke any more or at least not miss it.
Yes one interesting fact I am experiencing is that earlier, even when I was alone or rather say felt lonely, cigarette helped ( of course in bad way) . Now when I have quit, sometime it is difficult to understand what I want to do when I am feeling lonely or can't think straight.
At that time I surely remember my smoking days and it is good and frustrating together. Good because I know I am right track and still strong. Frustrating because I want to do something which engage me and is easy like lighting up a cigarette.
I also feel that in my case , since I work from home and hardly have a friend circle now a days to visit to, I feel this situation.
Overall to summarize, 4 month, you will be used to of not smoking without effort.
Still you have to be proactive to watch your gaurd as you never know. One of my frnd started smoking back after quitting for almost one year. It's his advise that one weak moment or a casual approach can bring you back to square one.
