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.blush

Have a wonderful smoke free day! I'm glad you're enjoying the pool.

Hugs,

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.

One of my favorite things is not smelling like it. I hated knowing how bad I smelled when I smoked I love now that I smell clean and pretty.

Claire,

It is absolutely normal to be spacey, loopy, and even forgetful at this point. You know how it is when you go into a room to get something and forgot what you came after as soon as you walked into the room? Well that is normal stuff early in a quit but I promise you that will happen less and less with each passing day. Also congratulations on quitting smoking last month! :)

Here's a fun raft for our pool too.  Who has the drinks and food?
