Day 35

Posted in Quit experiences 27 Sep 2015

Five weeks down and, finally, a weekend which has been no harder than a week day. I have done so much walking and so much deep breathing, and have kept myself busy. That has made all the difference. It feels good to have made it this far and I am pleased that I am on track to do something which I truly believed was impossible. I still have cravings and, occasionally, the loss of smoking brings back memories of other losses but I have to keep telling myself that I am on the way to the other side. I quite like looking at smokers in the street and thinking 'I am glad that isn't me'. I also know that it could so easily be me if I am not vigilant and determined.

Once again, thanks to everyone here for their inspiring, honest and heartfelt stories.

    Hi Fullofhope, so nice to see you are still going strong. It is hard however you are overcoming all the hurdles with a plan in place. Like you I look at other smokers and think Im glad that part of my life is over. It truly feels alien seeing someone have a smoke and thinking I used to do that. I know its early days but it does go quick and before you know it, you are clicking over the big century. Remain strong.xx
