85 days. I can’t believe I’m still kicking. 85 crazy, chaotic and as of late, serene days. It really does get better, newbies. It really is worth it and you will make it. If I could give them up, I know you can, too.
There were some rough times, and I imagine there still will be rough times, I’m not going to sugar coat. But now that I’ve gotten to nearly 3 months of freedom, I feel like the tide has changed...for the better. Life is always going to be tricky and precarious. But it’s so much better not having to have a cigarette to cope. The coping is inside. It’s inside. Newbies—you’ll find the strength. And you’ll figure out soooo much more about yourself than you realized was possible. I promise you. It gets better. Love to everyone and thank you for being here. XO
