You have to take one day at a time. Most of all, you have to want to do it. I could smoke right now, but...........I choose not to. The urge to smoke for me is still not gone and it's been 13 months. But I'm soooooooooooooo glad I quit. I feel better and I smell better. I don't want to smoke anymore and I'm not going to. If you are a believer pray. He will help you through it. Good luck!! You can do this. Patcher
Patcher, Oh how I long to be a one year quitter! But hey I will settle for my 4 and a half months. Congrats to you and many more years as a quitter! It does get easier and I like you could smoke any time any day but I am choosing not to. I feel so good. Thanks for being an inspiration here!
Take each day as it comes,11 days is a great step and its a 11 days that you are healing.I'm on day 26 and I can remember day 11.Its hard,but taking baby steps,keeping focused is all we can do.
Remember these are only urges that we trained our body for ,the day we started smoking.
No ,more cigs!!!!Your past the hard part.
13 months fantastic,I'm waiting a few more days to say 1 month!!!For me thats a mile stone,could always quit for a few weeks and then start smoking again.This time I want it to be permanant.So I'm focusing on one day at a time and just keeping busy.Boy by not smoking and keeping my hands busy I get alot done.
The key to this is determination,the want,the will and just taking one day at a time.Plus realizing that stressful situations arise everyday and that nicotine is just a crutch or an excuse to dealing with it.
You are definatly an inspiration,showing all of us this that it can be done .
