Almost 70 days. I'm still having to be mindful of the little tobacco voice in my brain which still talks of 'wouldnt it be nice'. But I feel so so so much healthier and clearer headed than I did as a smoker. Exercise is easier. My skin looks better and so does my bank account. Plus I never realized how much it stinks until I walk past people I know who just smoked. Bleh! ! I just want to keep on going with this. I do hope the thoughts go...eventually...one day! It's a gradual journey to freedom from this addiction, but you collect rewards along the way : D

    Ohh my the 'Wouldn't it be nice voice' I changed the sound of that voice to a coughing nasty voice so it doesnt tempt me.

    Youre bang on there with the smell as you walk past others or when someone comes in from smoking... it really does stink

    The rewards are awesome:) Go you :)

    Well done Jen and yes the thoughts will go .. I seldom even think about it .. not even when I am around people smoking .. I do have the odd day that pops up out of the blue where the thought will come but it is easy to toss aside.

    Fantastic effort Jen. Yep gotta just shut that voice down the minute it starts. And yes - those thoughts do gradually go, and become much easier to ignore.
