Hi all, haven't been checking in much lately sorry have been busy and doing so well on my journey. Today is day 38 and I an feeling great and managing well, although the cravings still jump out every now and then I am able to ward them off and stay strong and positive. I am soo looking forward to a smoke free christmas, turning 40 next year as a non-smoker and enjoying a new life that is happier and healthier. I am surprised by how calm and stress free I now feel, a true indication that smoking does not release the stressors of everyday life but actually exacerbates them. Well done US on making a worthwhile journey!!

    Hi Nic succeed,

    the cravings will come and go, but you will get stronger the more you say no to the cravings. The stress is only prolonged and suppressed, by smoking anyways. At least now you are confronting it, so it does not build to a point that you feel you need to smoke to cope. It's a vicious cycle and so happy to hear someone else in the world is free from that thinking. Enjoy the Christmas smoke free and new year to a healthier,happier, stronger, in control you. Well done , you have come so so far.

    I made it through the holiday season ... HUGE for me! I am at day 41!
    How are you doing?

    The holidays was the make or break day for me too. Luckily the smokers did not even offer me any cigs which then made me feel left out ... In a GOOD WAY! But, it was hard. Slip ups will happen ... I am wondering when mine will be. Hmmmmm ....

    Hang in there :)
