Hello dear friends. I am one month smoke-free today! 

I still have cravings in the middle of the night, but hey, it is ok. It is not something I can not handle.

I do not use Nicorette gum anymore (one week since the last pice) but Nicorette inhalator when I get too nervous. 

The only important thing is that I really fight for my freedom saying that mantra day by day Not another puff no matter what.

Something is very different this time. The fought off one cigarette is absent, that does not torture me anymore like the last quit.

As a reward, I bought my self a beautiful color for my hair- henna mandala, I love it.

My sister brought me flowers as a gift for my quit! More Petunia flowers heart_eyes

I love my life so much as a free person from this addiction!

I wish you a nice smoke-free day. Hugs blush

Thanks, Eve! I will guard my quit. I know some craves comes in waves and that are periods of time when I feel very low, then I feel good, happy, proud and so on. 

Mindfulness and autohypnosis helps me alot.

Wow! Yes you do know! And I hate to say this everyday is new challenge, at least for me. Some days I go the whole day without thinking of smoking, and other days I’m eating everything in site and am a couch potato and in a crappy mood all day. 
 

I know it’s probably psychological but just wondering when it will end...... the sleeping issues, wow! I went from being  constantly exhausted to being 5 more minutes to sleep! Which by the way turned in 3 more hours! I was an early riser, but not now. I actually forced myself to wake earlier (set 2 alarms this morning with one across the room) today. I NEED to get on a schedule for when work opens up again. 
 

I’m so happy you are doing so well

Michaela,

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I would put a star on here, but I don't know how lol 

I am so excited for you!! It is good to treat yourself, you totally deserve it. That, and it is so sweet that your sister is encouraging you as well - the more support the better!

Again, kudos to you! :)
