Hello my non-smoking and soon to be non-smoking friends. Yippee!! After decades of smoking, I have been a non-smoker for 3 weeks without a single puff! If I can do it anyone can do it!
The number of attempts I have had are sadly in the double digits. I have NEVER made it 3 entire weeks. I now believe it's never too late and you are never too old!!! I am beginning to see subtle benefits and I know there are more to come (solidified by posts from this Quitfam, in which I trust).
As with all my past quits, I was so thrilled at first to make it past a few hours, then an entire day, then day #2 to week #1, week #2 and now, I am EXTRA thrilled to make it to week #3! I know for some of you 3 weeks is still considered "baby steps" but I'm looking forward to graduating from steps to sprints!
The desires to smoke are certainly fading, in fact, I barely think about it. Life is becoming somewhat normal without cigarettes' in my life. I no longer need to think about the number of cigarettes' I have on hand and the worry of running out of them. This is a HUGE stress relief my friends, honestly.
I am now in new territory. I am going to push my "mindset" into purely believing, positive thinking and be just as determined to get to week #4 as I was to get through day #1 and I will do so with conviction, confidence and joy in my heart!!! Either way, I'm going to quit for good, period!!! Either I can cry about it or be joyful about it and I choose to be joyful about it.
Please keep the posts rolling in... I think they play a big part in addiction recovery, and a huge help with mindset (yes, we are all addicts in my eyes,.. but legal addicts). I am sure there is a big audience out there that wants to hear about all these accomplishments, incentives AND mostly, how life is "on the other side" from all of the seasoned non-smokers that have been set FREE.
Once again, a BIG thank you to my QuitFam!! Thank you WINNERS TEAM!! This community ROCKS!!!
I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful smokeless day!!! One day at a time and N.O.P.E. (Not One Puff EVER)!!
