It’s amazing, those stats and how quickly things add up! I’m so happy for you that you are feeling better and stronger with each week.
I am feeling that way too. I think I’ve accepted that smoking is a thing of the past, and I’m enjoying feeling stronger and it’s nice to hold my head up again. Funny how we could live with all the baggage of smoking for sooo long and not see the harm it does emotionally as well as physically!

You are so worth it, Michaela.  We ALL are !  Kiss Pepa, put on some Al Green and dance, take a bubble bath, eat chocolate, go for a walk, do anything but smoke.  Be easy on yourself for a few days .  You can do this. We are all with you !!

Sometimes I feel like I am just waking up or seeing life clearly for the first time in 46 years.  It truly is amazing....

Brenda, I could not stop the nicorette gum today. I bought another pack because I was too afraid of that  junkie thoughts.  I do not know what I shall do.

I was elected to attend a congress in Athens and I have emotions and I am stressed like hell.

That's okay, Michaela.  Maybe you will be able to quit the gum later, when you feel stronger.  Take it one day at a time, take on only what you feel you can handle.  We are doing something huge, we should be proud of ourselves but we are also human and not every day is a rose garden. Remember that through all of life's ups and downs, YOU have got through them, not the ciggy, but YOU. And YOU will do it again, minus the smoke. You will do awesome in Athens, I have faith in you.
