Hi I think you are doing so well and it’s great to be feeling a lot more healthier too. 
I think from time to time we all get those thoughts about smoking, but the most important thing is exactly what you said-that you would never act on them. 
I’m good thanks, I am back at school working with a small number of children. I am so looking forward to better days ahead xx

Hi James

well don’t to you for resisting the urge to buy cigarettes while you were parking your car. Just think how much you would have regretted it. 
We are definitely experiencing some difficult times but smoking won’t change them for the better. 
Stay strong and stay safe!!

Hi Brenda, you are so right!! One thing that is certain in these uncertain times-smoking will not ever make us feel better or change anything. 
We had a couple of friends over at the weekend and we were sitting apart from each other in the garden. They both smoke, as does my husband and when they were having a cigarette I did get a feeling like I was missing out. Thankfully that thought didn’t stay with me and they both said that they thought it was great that I had stopped. They both said that they had both stopped a while ago and then had started again, wishing that they hadn’t. 
Double digits will be here very soon yay!!!

Stay safe xxx

That is so great!  Congratulations and well done!!!  I am only 6 months but I am so happy to be on this quit journey.  I have no NRT's or slips or lapses or even sorrow or depression.  I don't miss smoking at all.  I do hear though that the 8 to 11 months can be quit challenging.  Have you found this to be true?  Sometimes I thing that my quit journey is far too simple and maybe there is a cliff waiting for me.  Would love to hear your input on your journey at this time.

Congrats and keep on keepin on, as they say.

Cheers

Happy Quit Smoking milestone celebration day!  I hope the only smoke you smell is from the fireworks, assuming you do that kind of celebrating. I hope the only reminder that you smoked is when you get this message from me saying you are doing AWESOME!

That is wonderful to hear, Linda.  I’m doing fantastic physically and easily knocking off any of those thoughts of wanting to smoke.  I am choosing to celebrate my successes rather than mire in the negative!  I have never been quit this for this long and it is a fantastic feeling!  You take care and stay healthy.
