What have I learned on my journey. One day at a time. Try to keep your stress level down if possible. Had to ask myself-is this really worth stressing about!! Get lots of rest and naps if possible and take care of your self.
Stay close to the site and read others blogs-I still do. when i first started my quit I bloged a lot.
I do once in a while have smoke memories and still having some 2nd time memories. Smoking is not a choice for me. I don't want to go back to day 1 again.
I can smell, taste my food, and breathe deep. Really smell the fresh air, taste you food and breathe deeply after quiting-it keeps you going forward. So much time was wasted on smoking my cigs than really seeing. I would set out on the back patio at night in the dark and look at the stars. I didn't really see them. I was too busy smoking. Once the fog lifted I could see a lot clearer. Feel more relaxed. Enjoy nature. When I had a good day, I would get out and have a good day-take advantage of it.
Keep going forward-Day to Day and don't look back.
They told me it would get better and it does-I promise!!!
Everyone here on this Ex's Community played a part in my succeeding and you all still do. I sincerely couln't have done it without all of you!!!
