Day 109

Blog Post created by Jennifer_Quit_05-01-14 on Aug 18, 2014

I am so happy to see that we have so many new members here!  I can honestly say that you have made a decision that you will never regret.  That is the hard part - making up your mind - making that decision - and making a pledge every day to not smoke.

My journey began on May 1, 2014 - and on the third morning of my quit, I discovered this site.  It was on a Saturday and I spent most of the day reading and learning about this addiction.  I was truly inspired by everyone's stories from those that had been quit for 1 week to 7 plus years.  And I thought, if they can do it, so can I!

The next couple of months were tough - I cannot say that I really wanted to smoke - but I had so many urges and cravings.  My emotions were all over the map - that is normal, I learned because I read every day about this addiction and the  withdrawal symptoms.

I wanted so very much to make it to the TDC (triple digit club) and I checked my count-up clock daily.  I did not think that I would ever make it to 100 days.  My cravings were strong and consistent from day 90 to 100. 

Day 101 was so different - I felt free.  My cravings are almost non-existent now.  I honestly can imagine going thru life and never smoking again.  It is a feeling that I hope all of you that are just beginning your journey will experience.  It is not easy - but it is so worth the little bit of discomfort that you will experience.

I wish for you all a peaceful journey to freedom!
