Well I have just clocked sixteen days and, in some ways, it seems like sixteen weeks but, in other ways, it has gone pretty quickly. Today was better than the weekend but I got to thinking that I felt pretty bored without the fags. I thought that life without a cigarette was not quite so exciting. However, when you think about it, what is so exciting about spending a lot of money to kill yourself slowly and painfully. I also reflected that the short term reward of smoking could never compare to the long term reward of knowing I had conquered my demons and done something which a month ago I was pretty sure was impossible. I know it is early days but it is good to know that there are a few days here and there which feel optimistic and hopeful. It is a roller-coaster, isn't it.
Nanette, I bought a box of tissues today just because they had the characters from Frozen on the box and my theme song for giving up is 'Let it go' (I don't have children so I have not heard the song one million times like everyone else). It seems appropriate to me.
I really think this website where people share their experiences is the very best resource we have on this journey. Thank you to all of you who contribute.
