Congratulations stringbean on quitting this addiction and joining this community. Read all you can and utilize all the advice/ support offered here! I am still new on this quit (11th day), and I agree it does feel like a battle at times...but it is totally a winning one. Lots of folks on here that have won and are here as wonderful resources and inspiration. You are already doing this and can continue to not smoke! So many more wonderful ways to spend time rather than sucking on burning paper.
Your right about sucking paper. I'm saving half my old smoke money to buy paint to get rid of the smoke smell. The other half the have a little smoke free fun.
How is it going Stringbean
I'm doing good. Went around today and threw out ashtrays. I was so proud as I found a partial cig in one. Wanted it but decided hope I don't need that and it went in the garbage with the ashtrays.
Great choice in taking your life back from addiction, Stringbean
Educating yourself about nicotine addiction and getting support can really help you stay quit for good. There is plenty of education and support here.
You are doing a great thing.
