Day 12 Smoke Free

Posted in Quit experiences 11 Sep 2021

I am proud to say I have reached day 12 and have not slipped once, not that I haven't thought about it though! Day 7, 8 and 9 were particularly hard and I really needed to stay focused on my quit. I just kept telling myself that it is the addiction talking, I dont really want a cigarette and once this passes I will be fine. I am a mum of 2 girls, a 13 and 8 year old. Being a positive roll model for my two beautiful girls plays a large part of my quit.

I wake up this morning feeling great, such a roller coaster experience. Thank you everyone for the inspiring posts, this certainly keeps me on track when I get that anxious feeling!

My 2 week mark is so close and many more to come 😊

    Thank you Jessfreeof, that is so lovely. To be completely honest I had a terrible weekend and let myself slip 😢 I gave into temptation while around other smokers and feel terrible for it. I am definitely back on board again today...trying to stay positive after disappointment.

    You and your girls should be very proud of your accomplishment. I am sure that all here are proud and wish you success as well. Keeping focus on the reason we most want change is very motivating. You have two beautiful reasons foremost and many others too I am sure. Life as a non-smoker really is wonderful, but change is always an adjustment and takes some time. Keep up the great work! No one regrets meeting their goal.
