I am 16 days into my quit journey and feeling fab! As previously stated I have smoked for 20 years and only quit temporarily for a few months, or during pregnancies.
Today I told my “smoking buddies” that I have joined this site and I will not take up smoking again when this baby is born and I found this really helped me cement that this time it is for good!
I absolutely love the internal feeling of being in control of the addiction this time rather than me just waiting for the baby to be born so I can start smoking again, with that coffee, to have a break. I have started taking my herbal teas outside in the morning and taking that break; but making new memories and experiences by not having the filthy disgusting smell and inhale of smoke. I feel so much shame for allowing myself to smell that disgusting for my son, but forgiveness is key.
Onwards and upwards everyone! The 16 days has honestly gone so quickly, I am going to come back and journal here again at 3 months! That was my other “hardest” milestone.
We all have got this if we believe in ourselves. Thanks for sharing your stories. :)
