Hi ya'll. I haven't posted in a while so thought I would. My now out-of-nowhere, sudden, every-once-in-a-while smoke urge reminds me that I should get back here. It's been 4 months, 6 days, 17 hours, and some odd minutes now since I quit. I'm pretty happy that I'm staying quit for this long, and get a little scared sometimes that I might cave in. Then I start taking those deep breaths, and tell myself stuff like, "No, that is not what you want! You like/love yourself too much to go back to THAT. Then you'll just hate yourself for doing it! Yucky! Stinky! No need for it. You know that if you have just one, later it will be another one, then another..." Then I distract myself and carry on. =)
It DOES get easier. And the pangs/urges get further and further apart. I don't recall for sure, but I may have actually had a day here or there go by without thinking of smoking at all! Excited to see that happening more and more!
