I knew my 200 days was over the weekend, but non-smoking life got in the way and I completely forgot about it until this morning! My husband' uncle passed away and we had a wedding this weekend so there were other things on my mind. Please forgive my absence over the weekend. I will be gone tomorrow as well since the funeral is tomorrow.
Anyway...life does go on and I am here to celebrate 201 nicotine and smoke free days!!!
I am FREE - 201 Days, 4,833 Hours, 290,038 Minutes, 17,402,310 Seconds (Give or Take)!!!
Money saved so far: A little over $2,356 (and I am actually putting this money into a savings account for a rainy day).
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 6,042.5
Life regained (in days): 50
Time spent NOT smoking (days): 20
Cravings - On a very rare occasion, I have a had a craving which is more like a passing thought. I know the craving is not from the nicotine itself; that is long gone out of my body. The craving is a psychological craving; a memory or situation where I would have a sickarette. I know to watch out for them and how to recognize them. I am creating new, non-smoking memories now.
What keeps me strong is positive self-talk. I tell myself I don't do that anymore! NOPE. SINAO. One step and then another will get you where you want to be.
Weight Lost since quitting: Still 15 pounds! I got my eating back on track and have begun to exercise more. I am lifting weights and working out 3x per week.
