114 days!

Posted in Hints and tips 12 May 2021

So it's already been 114 days! 3 months! that's the most i've accomplished even with champix, It has helped but also my willpower the most! I do not regret it and as the months have went by i haven't even really thought about it, i've had alot of stressful things going on and still choose not to i can't stand the smell now and i couldn't imagine even smoking again its awful. I feel so proud of myself getting this far already and being able to handle stress in other ways, I have started walking which has been really good for my mental health and myself, As i found that smoking made my mental health alot more worse, Yes i still struggle mentally but the no smoking has def helped me not be as irritable! If i do have a slight craving it's pretty much nothing much maybe a slight thought in the back of my mind but not as demanding as when i first started to give up and i just am doing other things anyway so im not really thinking about it i think if you keep your mind busy the better but yeah 114 days and proud and i don't regret it at all! Keep pushing everyone you can do it!

    Congratulations Mia88, you certainly have the right to feel proud of yourself for this milestone. You have also worked out that your cravings/urgings are just thoughts, let them float away.

    You have worked out different responses to difficult situations this means you are trusting yourself completely well done. NOPE (not one puff ever).

    When we want to do something , we will. If not we find excuses. We first need to WANT to quit and to BELIEVE that we can. So many here have and anyone can. Having the right mindset makes it easy. Allan Carr is wonderful at getting the point across. I have a link to his free e-book if you click on Happiness (above) The book is excuses.....a must read for all.

    @Kris90 i am sure you will, You just have to also want to quit as well, it is a little harder to begin with but as time goes on it will get easier just gotta keep pushing if you know it's something you truly don't want to do anymore you won't!
