Hi Elaine,

How are you doing now? I hope you are feeling better. I know it is not easy. I think it is all due to smoking and not due to surgery. Just stick with it and you will be fine.

Regards,

Asad

Thanks Asad
 

nothing has changed Still low with unclear thinking.  Don’t know what to do from here.    Almost at 3 months,   Waiting for some kind of breakthrough.

Thinking of Thanksgiving makes me wonder how I’m going to pull  it off in front of my family, feeling this way.

Hi,

This is what the icky 3 is. As mentioned earlier , I was going through the same thoughts as well around the same time. The thought process was very negative at the time that it has been so many days and still I am not feeling good and this will stay like this forever. How will I spend rest of life and it is miserable than when I was smoking and blah blah.

Trust in process. You have gone through the hardest of the part i.e. first 3 days and than first 3 weeks. Stay on course and you will see a lot of improvement in coming days. Going back to smoking will mean you have to start from the scratch when you want to try quit again and all these days will be repeated.

Regards,

Asad Khan

Well here I am again - it doesn't seem a month since I posted my 8 stars but today I celebrate 9 months being smoke free.  It is definitely getting easier as this anniversary has crept up on me - at the start I kept counting days to when I would notch up another month.  I still miss it but now fully appreciate the benefits of being a non-smoker.. for health reasons right down to not having to sneak around so no one sees you.  I am actually looking forward to my first Christmas not spending the day wishing I could have a smoke (as you may remember I was a secret smoker so days like Christmas Day were always very difficult).

So 9 months it is smilegrinninggrin

Congratulations Jan! 3/4 to the clubhouse! You are definitely no Sissy you've shown that nicotine monster that smoking is no longer an option for you. Stay strong like a soldier and stay on guard to thwart those few out of nowhere craves that try to lure you back. Nice NOPING!! Onto month 10.
