Oh @Gerti1 I had also been wondering about you.  Everything seems great and I'm so pleased for you.  I loved (and still do) the extra money ;)

YAY!!! :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

Sounds to me like you've got this sussed @Gerti1, you're doing brilliantly!

At this point I think the only thing any of us would say is to keep your guard up.  For some unknown reason our smelly nemesis, while considerably weakened, often conserves his energy for a last ambush quite a long way into a quit and this has been known to derail folk.  As long as you stay aware, squash any craves immediately they occur and refuse to give them airtime in your head and stick to the N.O.P.E. rule then you should be just fine.

Looking forward to your milestone post as you move into Month 3!

How is the new coffee machine? You really are doing so well and you seem to be so calm and serene with it.

@Gerti1 , you are indeed a total star...  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

I don't think you'll be ambushed now, come what may. I can just tell that the little switch in your brain has flipped over to the permanent 'off' position and once that has happened it really does change everything in my experience. Well done that girl!  :hug: :hug: :hug:
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

Well done you sound like you are speeding away from your addiction and loving it which is fantastic to me who is still slightly worried about a life without cigarettes and reassuring to here someone happy this soon in their quit rather than months later 6 weeks isn't very long to learn to smile again  :foundbeer: not forgetting better skin i so need than I'm 41 going on 92! Haha x very well done and here's hoping to a smooth ride to the penthouse for you x
