Today marks 6 weeks of my (hopefully) final quit journey and I feel that this is the longest attempt I have had by far.

This week the kids went back to school and although I was hugely worried that being in an empty house would lead to me wanting to go back to my old normal and smoke again I handled it ok. Was a few times when I would get back from dropping the kids off or before I went to pick them up and thought it was smoke time but nope that was my old life although I still check to see how much of a smoke smell I have before getting near school.

Yesterday was particularly hard and ended up going to bed in a real stressy mood....then had a dream that I had started smoking again and trying to hide it from my husband as the one smoke had turned into a pack...was so glad to wake up and realise I hadnt undone all my hard work in real life.

Its my sons 10th birthday this week and I am already planning a nice meal out for him with maybe some bowling and I dont need to worry about how much money I have to set aside for smokes or not being able to handle sitting for a meal without a "fresh air" break. Certainly more present now!!

Still a big nope nope NOPE from me!!

best wishes to everyone else going through their journey =)
