I cant believe how fast time has flown by!! Hard to believe its 7 weeks
since I last smoked.
This quit feels so different from previous ones. For some reason,what you
all told me before sunk in this time naturally.You all told me that no
matter what is going on or how Im feeling,that smoking will not solve
anything,fix anything or make me feel better. I read the words but couldnt
quite get it. I do now.I have had my share of ups and downs this time
around. I have been happy . I have been angry. I have so depressed I took to
my bed and stayed there,unable to face life.I can honestly tell you that not
once have I considered smoking. Not once.A couple times I did desire a
cig,but did not play the usual head games with myself ,trying to convince
myself to smoke.
I guess the biggest gift I have receive this time is the gut-level
realization that I dont feel any different not smoking than I did
smoking.Not any angrier or any more depressed. I 'd have felt the same way
smoking. Thus I must conclude that cigarettes are not the answer to the
feelings I dont like or find uncomfortable.
If there are any lurkers reading,trying to work up the desire and courage
to quit,DO IT!! It wont always be easy,but I can assure you it most
definitely is worth it. I dont regret a single smoke-free day I have had.
Not once have I said" I wish I had smoked today"
