Well I can't believe I have made it this far and feeling so great about it too. In the past I have always fallen off the wagon but I feel this time round it is different. Maybe I was ready thsi time round or maybe it was because I used the patches however whatever the reason I am still smoke free.
I am no longer on the patches as I stopped that weeks back when i kept forgetting to replace the half patch I weened myself down to. I still have a full box of patches as home and a script for another month but I doubt I will need.
I have managed to not put on any weight but that is because I have made sure that I attend the gym more than what I did before I gave up. Prior to giving up I used to go 3 times a week but now I go at least 9 times. It is a matter of getting up at 6am and going to the gym before work and so for me to do this I pack my bag the night before with my clothes that I will need for work, towel, toiletries etc and then I put these in my car so that all I need to do is get up and clean my teeth and get dressed. I organise someone that gets up after me to feed my animals but luckily I do not work everyday so i can feed my darlings most of the week.
I very rarely have an urge for a smoke and can go out with friends and have a few drinks without even worrying about a smoke. That was the thing I feared the most was that I would not be able to handle it. It has helped with having the smoking laws in place so that the smokers are secluded in another section. I have gone into these sections but OMG does the smell put me off, I last a few minutes as I am almost choking to death.
Humble.....your half of a smoke yesterday.....put it behind you as on my 60th day or so I had a smoke and was quite peeved off with myself and it wasn't until someone posted what percentage that was in the 60 days did I build a bridge and get over it. It doesn't matter so long as you don't get tempted again. I have a friend that still smokes but most of the time now I don't even sense it.
It is soooooo glorious to feel this way and I encourage you all to keep on going with your smokefree plans. All the best eveyone
