Made my 1 month almost a week ago and still going strong... haven't even had a NRT gum today, although haven't been home to deal with my dad yet so that could change.
Didn't life through every excuse under the sun at me over the holidays...
My newphew was in car accident on the way home from school and spent 3 days before christmas in hospital with head injuries.
A very dear friend lost her husband christmas eve in a car accident (and my daughters bff lost her dad)
My daughter read and saw images of the accident and also read the publics nasty comments about it online and had to deal with that.
My sister (in her 30s) berated my daughter (11) during christmas lunch until she cried (yes I lost my shite with my sister) because she spelt her boyfriends name wrong on his card (my daughter is dyslexic).
My uncle fell on the icy footpath, hit his head, suffered a brain bleed and passed away.
Having to explain to my dad why his specialists wouldn't let him fly to his brother.... repeatedly.
In amongst that I had my 1 month quit anniversary and when I told my mum (never the most supportive) I was told I was being selfish and prideful for being happy about it with everything else going on.
So my 1 month was an anti-climax but I am so freaking proud I achieved it. If I can get through the past 10 days and not smoke (did exceed my self imposed 4 chewy limit a few of those days) I will do this forever this time.
