I am posting today as tomorrow I will be at work.
Tomorrow...26 September or 377 days it will mark 1 year of going cold turkey.
I have for 1 year of not smoking saved in a smart kitty $6240.00.
I have suprised myself with what I have achieved... others have asked if I was going to celebrate with a smoke....the answer is simple, NO..
Temptation at times is still there but I have to be strong, stubborn, and give myself a stern talking to.
Its a very hard habit to break but its doable, be positive and patient with yourself. I had what I call a Bounce Buddy, he gave up smoking 2 weeks before me, so during our quit time together, we would support each other, I hadn't seen him for about a month, spoke to him the other day, asked how he was going with his journey...he was on the verge of tears and apologies to me as he had gone back to smoking....I told him that I was disappointed but not as disappointed as he is with himself, he let me down but he himself more....I had to reevaluate my journey... would of been so easy to cave in but I found an extra gear to continue on my journey, but still take one day at a time. I am like an alcoholic but I don't drink...but I am an addict to Nicotine.
Hopefully this time next year I can write another message of my journey and still be one of positives....
We can only give it our best shot if we stumble it just shows us we are all human.
Bring on my next 365 days of No Smoking.
