I quit smoking at the very end of June 2017, which means that I've made it six months.  I've stopped counting the days being that I hardly think about cigarettes anymore.  I am still vigilant though.  I have my first real craving in months on New Years Eve, likely due to the special occasion.  It lasted maybe five minutes and I was thankful to be smoke free again!

Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

Congrats on your 6 months of freedom and happy New year. I too struggled over the holidays with association urges but held on to the quit!
