20 days smoke free

Blog Post created by gregp136 on Jul 5, 2019

It has been 20 days since I had my last cigarette.  No big deal.  

 

Or...

 

Really BIG deal!

 

It depends where are, and what you have gone through to get there.

 

For  me, in this quit, I am not focusing as much on the numbers.  As many of you know, I have been here quite a while, and have struggled after losing my BIG quit.

 

But I did not give up, and that is what is important.

 

Some things I tried failed.  Other things worked for a bit.  I keep trying, kept failing.

 

And I kept coming here, often saying nothing, often just reading, and silently praising the elders who were bringing along the newbies.  

 

But yes, I feel the urges, the temptations, but they pass.  I still only sleep about 4 hours a night, and that is okay too.  Weight gain, chewing gum, being mean and grumpy, sometimes feeling completely lost.....all of that is okay.  I will get through it all.

 

And so will you.

 

Together, this will be our final quit!
