- I am so happy I am over 600 days quit. I worked the 2-10 shift on Christmas Eve which I have not done in many years. Gosh, did that remind me of being a smoker. I thought about going outside and finding a smoker to "borrow" a cigarette from. I can't believe I thought so strongly about smoking again. I feel wonderful being a non smoker, but boy did I want to give in. I reminded myself how hard it was to come this far and I did not go out to smoke. I feel good, but less resolved based on the strength of that craving after many many months of no cravings. Yikes, did that not feel good! I came home from work and did not think about smoking again, even though I with other smokers. I think I realized once again, how this is all about me. I and only I came overcome this one day, one month,one year and only I can say no thank you even to myself.
