Lol, I suppose I could say that too since my last cig was on 10/30. stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes I am actually just happy to say that I have quit at all.

I have definitely had some bouts of junkie thinking today. So far I have been able to recognize it and work through it, using distraction and/or deep breathing mostly. I’ve been reading lots of articles that are posted on here. They are so helpful for keeping my thoughts on the right track. I feel a little spacey or loopy today. Anyone else have that early on in their quit?

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

-Smell! 

Keep on keeping on!

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. 

Hugs,

Andrea

It occurred to me last night that starting today I can say I quit smoking last month

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