Do I miss smoking? There are certainly times when I wish I could smoke without the side effects that I am well aware of. The cravings do appar from time to time but I am in control of my cravings. I also know not to be complacent.
The one side effect of quitting that I was not thrilled about was my weight gain. That too has become a non issue as I have started losing the lbs. At 10lbs now and generally feeling good about my health.
Feel great telling doctors that I am a non-smoker. Felt good to call my life insurance company to reduce my premiums to non smoker levels.... (they said I have to stay quit for 2 years which isn't too far away) Feels good to not snore at night.
And my resolve to stay quit has also led me to be alcohol free for 9 months. I would most certainly have slipped had I also not quit alcohol. I had a near slip 9 months back when I decided that I really don't need alcohol.
Thank you to all; whose posts I have read to stay motivated and on track!
