Yeah! A NEW month! And so the calendar turns. Happiness is:
-Waking up today without an ugly cough
-$300 bucks saved in my pocket in one month!
- Smelling hand cream instead of smoke on my hands
-The disappearance of that UGLY yellow stain on my right hand middle finger
Keep on keeping on!

Wow! Almost 1 month for you, Munk! That is awesome.
Good Morning, Claire. I like how you put it about being "more fully present in the moment". It's important to recognize and appreciate the positives we experience when we quit smoking and think of them when cravings hit.
I'm glad you're doing good on Day 2, Claire. Stick close to the forum.
You're very welcome, Blue. I forgot to toss these in.

It occurred to me last night that starting today I can say I quit smoking last month
You're right, JR! It does sound a lot longer.
Have a wonderful smoke free day! I'm glad you're enjoying the pool.
Hey, Munk! Those are some excellent reasons to keep on keeping on!
Hey, Dededubs! How are you doing today?
Octonopers! I hope you're all settling into your new home. I'd like to share an article that speaks to the positive changes that others have experienced on this journey.
Have a wonderful smoke free day!
Something I've learned with all my quit attempts and my now current quit is if I want to stay quit I truly can never have even one again and you know what I'm finally okay with that I've accepted that. I've heard over and over there's no such thing as one cigarette but I kept testing that theory and tried to smoke less, only on weekends, one every hour. It doesn't work that way not for me anyway and I believe I finally learned my lesson Not One Puff No Matter What. At 12 days quit it's actually gotten a lot easier than the first few - 5 days but I could never see past that now I see that I actually can go without a cig and feel ok with it too, grateful. I know I'm still early in my quit but I am actually hopeful I can do this, I am doing this, one day at a time.
