Good morning everyone. Today marks 6 months of freedom from being a smoker. I did it cold turkey without any crutches because that way I would have nothing else to wean myself off. I have had many attempts in the past which taught me all I needed to know and do to successfully quit once and for all and the trick for me was NEVER give up quitting smoking. I smoked for about 40 years with the last twenty years a rollies smoker. I found for me the battle was not with the smokes it was with the head. I didn't have to many times when the urge for a smoke was all consuming however I did experience anxiety that was through the roof for about 9-12 weeks but I knew that smoking is NOT a cure for anxiety so my choose was to go through the anxiety knowing and believing I would come out through the end of it a nonsmoker and that I did. I held on and I often cried and I did everything I could to help eliminate the anxiety inside me and sure enough 12 weeks tops I emerged out the other side a nonsmoker and anxiety gone. I can hardly believe it's been 6 months and overall it has been an amazing experience and has shown me a glimpse of the strength and power I have access to. NEVER give up on quitting smoking. Today I am free from the chains of smoking. Thankyou to everyone who has helped me on this site as you all know this was my second attempt on this site to quit smoking. Today I am free from smoking and it feels bloody MARVELOUS 😊♥️🙏
