I didn't realise how long it's been until I just replied to another post and saw the meter in my siggy- it's been 70 days!!

Days can go by now where I don't even think of a cigarette!

If I see someone standing outside a store smoking, and I pass by, I think,
'Oh yeah.....I used to do that!'

I can go to my mom and dad's (they are smokers), and the smell doesn't really bother me- it doesn't smell bad, but it doesn't exactly smell good either.

Unfortunitely though, I seem to feel like I am still avoiding certain people or certain situations. For instance, I have not had a glass of my favorite wine. I just can't- I don't know how to enjoy a drink without smoking.

Anyway, just wanted to share what's been up with me! Hope you all are well.

Hey Suz, It sure sounds like you've got your monkey by the tail. As for

I have not had a glass of my favorite wine. I just can't- I don't know how to enjoy a drink without smoking.

I read something early on that said the way to deal with the drinking and smoking issue was to imagine pouring the drink over your head instead of smoking. The visual sure worked for me! Keep the faith - Never Take Another Puff! ~ Cissy

Congratulations Suz on your beautiful quit. Have a great day.
I promise you that a day will come when you will be comfortable in your own body. I promise you that a day will come when your brain will heal. Never take another puff. Your a puff away from a pack a day.

You are amazing! That is so great.

I felt the same way about the wine...so after like 22 days I tested the theory. I had ONE glass and I was fine. I dont know if I would have been ok after 3 or 4...but I was able to enjoy a glass of wine and not have a cigarette!

I am only on 27 days...and I can't wait to post when I'm up to 70!! YOU ROCK!
I have been smoke free since 2/27/09
