10 months

Posted in Quit experiences 03 Mar 2014

Hello everyone ,

Hope you are all doing well and still going strong. Approaching the ten month mark which feels amazing. It feels great to get this far and to be healthier. So glad that I do not smoke anymore. It can be done, it takes time and alot of patience. But so so worth it. There will be times where you feel like you are going mad and feel like what  is going on.... it can play on the emotions and stress levels can reach a point that it never did before , because before your smoking kept them under bay, or the expression kept  'a lid on it'...  by smoking . But that passes and you get used to it and you actually deal better with things in the long run.

I hope everyone is on track and keep going..... and never forget it is only one day at a time .
