Day 5 almost over!!!

Posted in Quit experiences 17 Jul 2021

I am back and I feel fine! I've had some urges but I remind myself they are only thoughts. It's all in the mind. I worked hard to change my mindset. Read and viewed about all the bad stuff smoking does and drilled it into my head. It does absolutely nothing for me. Also read these great posts about how awesome it is once a non-smoker. Thank you all for your posts. I know it's only day 5 so I don't want to get too ahead of myself.

    Day 5 or day 500 they are all awesome achievements especially if you continue each day smoke free one day at a time ❤️

    Embrace your new life and you should not have difficulty succeeding. . It is when you think that you are missing something and start the self doubts that invites trouble. You have made up your mind to be a nob-smoker, and with good reason(s). Life really is better as a non- smoker.. You never hear of anyone who wished they smoked......
    Good job, great attitude. Keep it up!

    Hey thanks for checking in with me, much appreciated. Day 13 and feeling good. Experienced my old smoking buddies at work go on a break without me which was tough but I went and sat with the non-smokers group that I guess I’m now a part of. I still miss it sometimes but I love not being controlled by the nicotine urge anymore and really enjoying a new freedom. Hope your day is going well and sending positive thoughts your way
