I’m about 10 and a half weeks quit and today I had 2 very deep and strong cravings to smoke that came out of nowhere and took me by surprise. I even had the thought of going to buy a packet but then I thought of how long I had quit for and that soon I’ll have racked up 3 months.
After that I decided to ring a friend to distract myself from my thoughts. I think after you’ve quit for some time that your mind can tend to come up with reasons why you should smoke again it tries out various old tricks and I don’t know why. You would think that the mind would be happy with the decision to not smoke as after all it is much better for ones mental and physical health to not smoke.
There’s just no way I’m going to give in I don’t care what it takes. I’ve just got to realise that my life is so different without the smokes. I’m actually getting things done instead of just planning all the time. And my garden is starting to look nice instead of being filled with weeds. I am taking care of myself too and being kinder to myself not self critical like before. These are among the benefits I have experienced so far.
I wish everyone here all success with quitting for good. I did it cold turkey which for me was the best way. I still struggle a bit at times as I’ve mentioned here and going on this site helps. I have problems to deal with like everyone else but now I deal with them instead of inhaling toxic fumes.
I feel like I’ve really nailed it this time as I tried for a very long time and kept going back. I am not sure why this time is different but it is.
