First bad constant craving came Sunday morning!
The cravings, knowing I’m just a drive or walk away from every cigarette or packet and knowing this is all accessible any time, night or day. My cravings are regular and I try to keep them bay as best I can like on Sunday, it took all my will power to convince myself I honestly am better off and my fiancée to reassure me. Now, I’m just trying to live through each day “Smokefree” 🚭
16 Days, what an achievement if I do say so myself.
This is my second attempt to quit smoking, I know and understand the trials and tribulations that come with smoking but I am more confident and am in for the long haul this time around. The weekends are the hardest for me, believe me when I say this, however, as I have my newly found confidence and a positive mentality it is all steady as she goes and taking 1 day at a time.
The weekend comprised of family, social drinks and the thought of having a cigarette crossed my mind - the two go so well together, or so I thought. A cigarette was lit in front of me, unintentionally, and cravings started to reappear so I asked for a puff....my loving fiancé deterred my mind from all those corrupt thoughts whilst encouraging me to stay focused. She has being ‘smoke free’ for 9 years this year and I couldn’t be more proud. I look forward to sharing my trials and tribulations with you all in the hopes I’m able to encourage others to steer clear 🚭
It is my 4th day & I am enjoying being ‘smoke free.’ I understand the long journey ahead isn’t going to be pleasant or easy but I will visualise my outcome for the end (thank you Isaac) & the financial & health benefits I, myself, and family would have accomplished. The money I used for smokes is going towards a family trip at the end of this year & every 6 months thereafter - something I should have done long ago
I have finally submitted my registration and am ready for the next step. There was a little apprehension today but I know I need to do this, my body was yearning for help and after many years of procrastinating I took the plunge and am ready for what’s to come - Good and Bad days. Let’s do this!
