Still Sometimes

Today is Smoke-free Day 115!

It's odd to me that sometimes it seems so natural that I no longer smoke, yet at other times it seems really strange that I don't. Yes, even now, still, sometimes it does occur to me that I would love to smoke if only I could get away with it and not suffer all those crappy consequences. If only.

The good news is that it is less and less that the thought of wishing I could smoke occurs to me, and it doesn't have the same hold it did at the start or just a little ways into my quit, so I am hopeful that it will continue to diminish day by day. It's also good knowing that others like fellow Chantix quitter Nathan (100 days today!) also do experience similar thoughts but that we all just keep right on going.

Each day I just have to make it until bedtime, and I know that I'll make it again today, and tomorrow I'll wake up again glad that I again made the right choice for my millions of great reasons to stay quit. It's worth it.

  2. I was hoping that would go away after a hundred or so days. Damn this miserable addiction!

  3. I know what you mean Maggie. I'm celebrating my 3 month anniversary and I still sometimes (want) a smoke...but I know that wanting and doing will never connect anymore when it comes to that. WOOHOO! on your 100 day anniversary!! Way to go!! I'm right behind you there...a few more days to go for me...and then I'll be there. Been having some puter issues so I haven't been around, but I *promise* to update today sometime.

  4. Chris, the good news is that it's really not as bad, just still not gone ;)

    Jaime, great to see you again! I was just thinking about you yesterday and hoping all was well!
