Hi Brenda I am 100% positive your body is saying a massive thank you to you!!! You are doing great...200 miles on your bike and 3042 cigarettes not smoked!!! You are amazing!!
Ive had the odd thought after extremely busy days at work where I get into my car and have a brief thought of having a cigarette. But like you say that junkie thinking can take a hike! I love that.
We are heading towards our fab 4’s lol and of course we smell great!!
Ah yes, the roller coaster......I know it well. I have found with myself that it is all about attitude. If I get a little negative, stressed or depressed, the junkie within will talk to me a little more. Then I have to use my tools more, distraction, positive self talk, exercise, come to the forum. If I stay positive about my quit and myself, it is so much easier. How about you, do you notice that attitude is a real biggy for you ?

I get those occasional triggers myself, after a tough day or when I finish with something and take a break. Or if I let myself get down or negative. I try to keep myself positive and grateful for my quit. I am definitely learning as I go, but for the most part I am doing good. Onward to the fab 4's....
Hoping that everyone is well and staying smoke free. Noticing positive changes everyday with myself and I am so grateful for my quit. Hope you all have a great weekend.
A great big congratulations, Viv. 3 months down, onward to the 4th.
Hope you get to feeling better soon !!! Thinking of ya !!
Oh thank you, Brenda!
You’re very kind. I’m sitting in a cozy nest of pillows and blankets. Hopefully this goes away before Thanksgiving! At least I’m not smoking.
How are you doing today?
Hope you are feeling better each day and the quit is getting easier. When I smoked, even sick, I would have been outside getting my fix. How dumb is that ? It is nice to be able to stay warm and toasty now and not care what the weather is doing. I am doing pretty good, I don't have too many bad days. Try to just ignore myself when I do ! Still riding my bike each day, feel kinda like Forest Gump but on a bike....Ride Brenda ride !!! Have rode 236 miles and not smoked 3406 cigs. It feels good to do something healthy for a change. Anyway, sending good vibes and healthy wishes your way.
