Well I am pretty chuffed to have reached Day 50 - an achievement I doubted would ever happen. I had planned to celebrate with a coffee from my favourite cafe this morning but it was closed for the first time ever. Not to worry - I realized it was just knowing what I had done which made me happy. I so want to believe that I will never ever have a cigarette again and I know that my challenges are far from over. It's just that it would be such a waste of these seven weeks to slip back now.
I know it is going to take a lot longer before I find a day where I don't think about it. A friend told me it would be more like six months to a year before that happened. But the good thing is I can now go hours at a time without thinking about it and when I do, I think, 'well this was what it was like when I was in long meetings all day and could not duck out for a ciggie'. And everyone around me has been so encouraging and the people on this site have been amazing.
Let's all do this together and inspire each other to reach that joyful place where we simply don't care about smoking. We can help pick each other up when we stumble and clap each other on to the finishing line.
Thank you to all of you who have helped this newbie on her way. I will be relying on you well into the future.
