Today I have reached 100 days, this is such a big milestone for me. It has not been easy, especially living with smokers, and my best friends are all still smoking. i still feel like having a smoke at times. Just shows how strong the addiction is. I still take each hour/day one at a time. I am in some ways really surprised as I didn't actually think I could do it, but here is the proof. I credit using this site as my main distraction in the early days as one of the main aids in keeping me off the cigarettes, you guys with your wonderful supportive posts, sometimes funny sometimes sad, but always honest stories of your own rocky journey. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and give each of you a hug for your help and for being there for me when I needed you most. I know I couldn't have done it with you all. To all the new members of this site, I truly think I was one of the worst addicted smokers, an absolute barking case first few days, having smoked since I was 13 years old, now nearly 60. I have never coped with anything with out a cig in my hand or mouth. All my family, and close friends are smokers and they have not really understood what I was dealing with and their idea of supporting was to tell me "you have done well and proved a point - so just have a smoke" or omg just go get a smoke you are being psycho lol so if I can do it so can you.
