Hi Susan, it sounds wonderful, enjoying nature deciduous_tree I too find Joy and peace in nature, attached find a picture taken yesterday on my morning walk. And yes, I take walks in the mornings now, new life, new routines.... 

I feel hopeful again, and I am so grateful for what is. My first year at university as a biology student has almost come to end, what an achiement for a 44 year old woman... 

Today I found out that I got the rental apartment I have longed for. It's quiet and even has a garden yet central as I dont have a car. I feel so blessed, I can finally sleep and study, no more screaming neighbours and frequent visits from the police. The new place is like a dream to me. God heard me and answered my prayers. 

Life is looking brighter in all aspects star2

Keep up the good work and thank you for letting me be a part of your Journey heart

Thank you! As for how I have been feeling, I had a difficult week. For some reason, I seem to struggle a bit right before I reach certain milestones. But, I stayed strong and focused, because I don’t ever want to go through what I did in the beginning of this quit. I think this may all be stress related as there have been family health related issues, but I am very grateful to be at 6 months! Bring on the next 6!

Cher, 

Congrats..... I’ve read the 1st year will be the hardest, because we associated smoking with everything! Grief, joy, boredom, meals etc. Each time we get through a situation WITHOUT relapsing we have achieved a milestone! So you have done fantastic! You have achieved MANY milestones and prevailed, keep it up!

Thank you Eve. I think the next 6 months will be much more peaceful. I feel great for the most part. I just keep my guard up, because every now and then the nasty addiction rears it’s ugly head. I just kick it aside and keep moving!

Hello my friend,

Sending you a virtual hug for 6 months/half a year of being not smoking! That is HUGE!  You has been such an inspiration to have on this journey. Not only have you had to give up cigarettes, but you chose to change what you eat.  2019 threw you a curve ball and 2020 has certainly been bumpier than a country road, however, you are overcoming!  You are a warrior!  Congratulations!
