and nicotine free bliss...lol

 

Ok, so today i went over to my sisters house and my brother in law, dad, and I all watched football today.  Now my sister and brother in law smoke, and smoked right in front of me no less.  BUT the positive here is ONE I didn't smoke and TWO the temptation to smoke was much much less than I had anticipated.  I really did not even want one and the smell was off putting.  I like that I can be around smokers and not feel like I'm depriving myself (cause I'm not) and that I can recognize that I don't need it and that's its unhealthy and it's a part of my life that I'm leaving behind and no longer will accept in my life.  So today was another small success in getting through potential triggers and situations that may have been tempting.

 

If yesterday wasn't a month long, today sure is, my ticker even says 1 month now.  I also noticed its started to drift quite considerably...I probably won't try to correct it as the money and # of cigs not smoked are dead on, but the hours and days have definitely drifted, again I just view this as me getting far enough away from my last cigarette that i no longer need to count every single hour or what have you anymore, because the craves are becoming further and further apart. 

 

Protect your quits.

Know in your heart that you will NOT blow up or explode into tiny pieces if you don't have a cigarette. You might feel like a squirrel in a coffee can trapped in your own skin occasionally, but you won't blow up... and the feeling will go away pretty soon. -marciem

All you have to do to stay free for life, is this:
Right now, this moment, the instant of space-time that you occupy: choose not to take one puff. - Samalie0

You're killing this quit, Rob! You're taking it out to the abandoned car park and beating it senseless!

Congratulations, Rob!  You are doing great!  I am so proud for you and respect your determination and attitude.  (Also relieved to know that someone else's ticker is weird)

One month is HUGE, Rob! Great job!!!


I will not smoke today. N.O.P.E. I have not smoked since June 12, 2013.

 

I smoked for 50 years and I quit cold-turkey with the help of the wonderful people on this board. If I can do it, YOU can do it!

If yesterday wasn't a month long, today sure is, my ticker even says 1 month now.  I also noticed its started to drift quite considerably...I probably won't try to correct it as the money and # of cigs not smoked are dead on, but the hours and days have definitely drifted, again I just view this as me getting far enough away from my last cigarette that i no longer need to count every single hour or what have you anymore, because the craves are becoming further and further apart. 

 

Protect your quits.

YeeHaw!!!! Congrats, Rob, you just did a GIANT LEAP towards FREEDOM!!!
