Congratulations on 7 months!!!!
Congratulations on 8 months. You are doing awesome.
Ty Asad! A little easier every day!
Hello brave hearts!!!
As we all pass the 8 month mark I wanted to acknowledge all.
we have gotten quiet but hopefully are all plugging away
i have begun to feel stronger and more myself.
i hope things have improved for all
? to to hear from the group
Hello Bravehearts, just checking in to see how everyone is doing.. I am still chugging along! I hope everyone is doing well and still non smokers. I guess I'll stop by the September thread and give some motivation to the newly quit. It looks like they may have an active group. Hope to see some of the Bravehearts around sometime!
i messages everyone a week ago and heard crickets. Lol
i am glad you are chugging along, me too
8 months and a week
looking forward to the year market as I still don’t feel settled yet. I am happy to have quit. The body and mind are still adjusting to being a non smoker.
I haven't checked in here for so long! BUT yes, the cycles! I thought I was going insane, gives me a lot of peace to again see this is normal and have someone put words to my feelings.
Hope you're doing well, Jean!
we must be on the same wavelength--I haven't been posting (and bad me not reading much either) but something told me to stop in today so here I am.
Hit 10 months over the weekend...still feeling some cravings here and there, especially after meals. I wonder when that will go away--that must have been one of my biggest associations. Had some stressful moments this weekend and today (nothing big--car trouble, bus never picked Lilly up) and as I was driving home from the mechanic I saw someone smoking and realized through it all, I didn't once say "I need a cigarette" This is HUGE for me. You're not too far behind me on your journey, but I think in this first year, you really do see massive changes month to month.
What are you reading?? I finally read Where the Crawdads Sing over Labor Day weekend--well I read it in like 2 days, haha it was AMAZING. Reading Queen Bee by Dorothea Benton Frank now--one of my favorite authors, she passed away last week. So sad this is the last new book of hers I'll ever read.
Thanks, Julie! Yes, doing well at the moment. The whole process really is nutty, isn't it? Andrea once said, "I swear it takes a good sense of humor to quit smoking." It's like taking your brain apart and then putting it back together piece by piece--lego castle style. (Except the castle didn't take this long!)
Congratulations on 10 months! You've got this.
