Hi all!

Yesterday was 8 weeks since I smoked my last cigarette. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since I stopped all nicotine. This is the longest I have gone without nicotine since the beginning of last year. 

I'm trying to remain nicotine free. I feel the pull of my addiction. I have been having strong cravings for the last couple of days. I know it will pass. I'm trying to be patient.

Here I am... posting before smoking. This year I will remain nicotine free.

Hey Bev

Congratulations on eight weeks.  You must be feeling really proud of yourself.

You're obviously doing all the right things this time and I feel sure that you will be able to make this your forever quit.  You've shown such strength and determination during your fight against this addiction and, now, happily it is really paying off.  We're all very proud of you.  You deserve this and its an honour to be on this journey with you.

Big Hugs, Suestar2star2star2star2star2star2star2star2star2star2star2

Debbie,

I have worked hard to reach where I am at now. When a crave hits, I keep asking myself will it be easier if I start then stop again. The answer is no. I've been there too many times so I know the outcome. I am now 2 weeks nicotine free. The only way to go is forward.

Thank you for your support. I will beat this.

Julie,

Thank you. I have every intention of keeping this quit. I had another rough start today, but I didn't smoke and I feel better now. It's not as bad as in the beginning. I have to keep reminding myself of that.

One day at a time.
