Reading the Sunday Times newspaper this morning I came across an article about "Victoria Gill" who quit smoking 6 months ago and spent the 1st week in rehab. The last paragraph reads as follows:-
"Quitting is like losing a lover. Initially, you don't know how to survive. Smoking is the first thing you think of when you wake, then there is that terrible sorrow that it has gone. It pops into your head throughout the day and reminds you of it's attributes over it's flaws. But, after time, you learn to live without it, to push it from your thoughts. And, eventually, you wonder what the hell you saw in it in the first place. Someone asked me if I now hate cigarettes. "It's not hatred, more indifference" I explained, and that's the best mindset of all."
This paragraph says it all for me, so roll on indifference, I am ready for you!!!!
What a great quote True Brit! That's exactly how I feel - and I am ready for indifference - I still have sad moments, but I shake them off.
So glad to hear you are doing great after quitting chantix! CONGRATS!
