I am just checking in. Today is my day 38. Not necessarily a special number or day except that I haven't smoked so that makes it special. I haven't had a chance to check in lately but I wanted to say that I really like the quitting smoking apps I have on my phone. I have 2 of them. One of them is called Smoke Free and the other is called Easy Quit Stop Smoking. They are both FREE which is a plus. In the first few days and weeks I would check them hourly and daily and it shows your progress. How many cigarettes you haven't smoked or how many days you haven't smoked. How your body is healing as you have more and more quit time. It's motivation. It's something to look at when you have a craving to see how far you've come and why you don't want to start over. I'm sure most of you know all about these but if someone doesn't, it's good to know.
Anyway, 767 cigarettes NOT smoked! I have not polluted my body and my lungs with that many cigarettes! I find that so awesome. Just another way of looking at it that makes me feel good when I get those cravings. I still crave but less often. And also I think some of them are just thoughts as opposed to actual cravings. So I try to dismiss them as I don't do them anymore. I also remember I'm one puff away from a pack a day!
I may not look at my apps as often as I used to but when I do look and I am really happy at what I see and how far I've come in just 38 days.
Have a good night and thank you for reading my little blog.
