6 months!

Today marks 6 months quit! I may not post a lot, but I come to this site weekly (sometimes daily) to keep me focused. I’m so thankful this site exists, and I have others I can relate to!! My anxiety is WAY better, and the freshness in the air almost brings tears to my eyes. NOPE.

    Well done Tay12, so pleased that you have realised your desire to be a non smoker. Isn’t it strange how when you were smoking you would have said I can’t give up, I have anxiety. Now that you have given up, your anxiety is much better. So proud of you and you deserve a big reward....treat yourself...you deserve it.
    Keep living the good life.

    Hello Tay, so glad to hear you are 6 months free from smoking (Nicotine). It seems like you now have a strategy to throw those thoughts away if they are not needed, Congratulations.

    For those reading these comments, we all experience slight anxiety during the early days. If you can overcome this part of the quit, by throwing any negative thoughts away, and not overreacting, we learn so much about ourselves, and this makes us overall better people to ourselves and consequently better people to others. Smoking masks all sorts of emotions

    Keep on going Tay and in any tricky situation, NOPE (not one puff ever) is the key.
