Feel so proud

Posted in Staying quit 06 Jul 2012

Well today is six months since I gave up smoking and I'm very proud of myself. It was hard at first and every now and then the little thought enters my head but thats all it does, I don't get tempted. I must admit, I thought it would be alot harder than it has been..... well maybe it has been hard, but everyday that willpower gets stronger and stronger and sitting back now I wished I had done this years ago.

To all of you starting out on this journey it does get better, i promise you.

    You have every right to feel proud. I think feeling the pride is one of the nice things about giving up, a sort of self indulgence that is satisfying.
    I am closing in on the 6 month mark, well soon, and like you trish, I wish I had done it years ago.
