Well I have just reached a milestone of being smoke free for one year, an achievement I thought I would never make.
Strangely though I have recently experienced a craving for cigarettes that I have not had since I quit and cannot readily explain the reason. The craving lasts for no more than 20 seconds before I reconcile the thought with the disgust I now have for smoking (not toward others, just me).
One thing I do know is, that if I slip, I will undoubtedly succumb to the addiction and all my hard work will be wasted.
I also think of the doubters who would say "knew he wouldn't last" and this acts as real inspiration to keep going.
The other day I bumped into a colleague who I have not seen since I quit and was complimented on how well I look and how the smell of tobacco was no longer my background smell.
So if you are struggling and need any more motivation, then I am a good example, smoked for over 30 years, willpower of a gnat and yet here I am....GO ON DO IT......
