Hi everyone. It was a little hard at first and I have now been 563 days smoke free. I have not even had a puff, I really cannot believe it but there you go. I kept telling myself that I am a non smoker. I have lost my mother, my Uncle has been very ill, I have lost a dear friend and close friends have lost their parents too. Other issues have been around me too but I have got through it all. This has surprised a lot of my friends as I was a heavy smoker, had been smoking since I was very young and have tried to give up a few times. Well this time I gave up for me,noone else like I was trying to before and I think this has made all the difference. Amazing when I think back at all the excuses I used to come up with to not give up just yet. It would be next week, when I run out of tobacco, etc etc.
This time I was crook with the flu, rolled a ciggy, went outside to smoke it, took a puff, put it out and that was it. The packet still sit with the lighter at the foot of the TV where they always used to sit and I have never been tempted. My partner smokes and it really does not worry me, many friends still smoke and I will go outside with the smokers when at meetings as this is where the networking really gets going.
Anyway, this is my update, I am nearly ready to buy my next car.
Good luck to you all who are trying and who have succeeded in quitting. Please do not dispare if you had a puff, many do and I am just a very lucky one. Keep on trying and remember to do it for you :-)
