It seems like forever and yet like I quit just a few days ago. The memories of smoking still pop up, but I know I do not do that anymore. I am grateful for all of the support I have gotten here, I know that learning- reading about the nicotine addiction and gathering tools that work for me are all little things I did to quit and keep my quit. I used my tool kit just a few days ago so I know it will not be going away anytime soon. I will be prepared in one way or another and do whatever I have to in order to keep my quit.
Within the first few days of my quit I bought a series of books,10 or so of them, just to give me something new to read.This morning having reached 100 days quit I decided I was going to buy me some fresh cut flowers. Nothing fancy, just a simple grocery store bouquet. I also told my husband every time I hit another 100 days I was going to buy another bouquet. For me I do feel it is necessary to reward myself, it does not have to be anything big, but just a little something.
My roommate got home this evening and was telling me about his day, the meeting regarding weed killer that farmers can use, the trip with his brother to go pick up his brothers new puppy. The antics of the new puppy once they got back to the farm. He went on to say the puppy was about 3 months old and then said he was born on Oct 31st. I laughed and said he is 100 days old, his birthday will be a day I will remember since I quit smoking on Oct 31st. So if he ever wants to know how old the puppy is just ask me
Quitting has been anything, but easy. Quitting is very doable though. Quitting with the support of the Ex community has helped me succeed.
Hold tight to your quit
