It only seems like yesterday I posted my One Year On story & here I am into my second year already. It has gone so amazingly fast & easy peasy!
No lie though, I still feel like one every so often & the smell of someone lighting up is just wonderful but that urge lasts just a second or two & I go about my day as an ex smoker (I don't like to refer to myself as a non smoker. I believe a non smoker is someone who has never smoked).
I find sometimes that I can go the whole day without even thinking of a cigarette & that's a fantastic feeling.
When I first stopped smoking I knew I was going to succeed & I think this positive attitude got me to where I am today.
Everyday without a cigarette was one day of victory.
It got to a week, then a month & then 10 weeks & I felt so proud of myself. I just knew I couldn't crumble. Knowing I had already gone this far would have been such a let down to myself & such a failure. I didn't want to disappoint myself, let alone my family.
So, here I am & here I'll be this time next year for #3.
For those just starting out, you can do this, you truly can, but you have to really, really want to do it. I believe this is the only way to succeed & go in there with a positive & head strong attitude.
Good luck, you have my back!
