Thank you, Susan.  5 months went by pretty quickly, didn't it?  The quit actually does seem to be getting easier, but I never want to let my guard down.  The stakes are too high.

Every once in awhile now, some event occurs where my first impulse is to have a smoke, but it quickly goes away when I remind myself that smoking is no longer an option.  I then take a deep breath, and go on about my day.  So much time and money wasted, and for what, so I could destroy my health?  One has to question one's sanity.

Thanks for being here for me.  I feel like I owe you and others on here big time.

Hi Arielle,

I hope you are doing well and you are happy, healthy and hanging in there.  

The weather here has been gorgeous, usually around 75 in the day and around 60 at night.  It has been wonderful to sit out in the evenings, with a slight breeze blowing, to just enjoy the smells, like grass, bbq, flowers, etc. and to enjoy the sound of classic songs playing in the background. It would be better if a group of us were chatting, but that is a luxury for a later time. 
 

I’m so happy to be on this journey with you and wishing you a restful month.  I hope that the thoughts of smoking have diminished and that you are enjoying a reprieve from the withdrawal.  Take care and if you have time, let us know you are well.

Hi Susan, it sounds wonderful, enjoying nature deciduous_tree I too find Joy and peace in nature, attached find a picture taken yesterday on my morning walk. And yes, I take walks in the mornings now, new life, new routines.... 

I feel hopeful again, and I am so grateful for what is. My first year at university as a biology student has almost come to end, what an achiement for a 44 year old woman... 

Today I found out that I got the rental apartment I have longed for. It's quiet and even has a garden yet central as I dont have a car. I feel so blessed, I can finally sleep and study, no more screaming neighbours and frequent visits from the police. The new place is like a dream to me. God heard me and answered my prayers. 

Life is looking brighter in all aspects star2

Keep up the good work and thank you for letting me be a part of your Journey heart

Thank you! As for how I have been feeling, I had a difficult week. For some reason, I seem to struggle a bit right before I reach certain milestones. But, I stayed strong and focused, because I don’t ever want to go through what I did in the beginning of this quit. I think this may all be stress related as there have been family health related issues, but I am very grateful to be at 6 months! Bring on the next 6!
