Into month 4
« on: June 24, 2017, 10:38:41 am »
So today I move in to month 4.  I have just started day 93 and I am rather proud of myself.  I'm not rushing to go down the strength on my ecig and I know that I can have a cigarette IF I really NEED to have one.  So far there hasn't been a need and I can't imagine there being one but I still need to have the thought that I can choose to have a cig.  I'm not ready yet to declare myself as an ex smoker but I do know that my mindset is ok.  I am doing what I need to do to avoid cigarettes for now, if and when the time is right to declare myself as an ex or non smoker only then will I do so.  I have failed so many times in the past and have been disappointed in myself so this is how I handle it.  I am reminded that the destination is more important than the journey and that getting there is all that matters.  Soon I'll be in to triple figures so it must be working lol.

YAAAAY our @markmcclean1980 ! That's FANTASTIC!!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

I think you've definitely found the method that works for you. Just keep on keeping on and the gates of the Penthouse will be opening before you know it.  ;D
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

Only 7 more days until your century! It doesn't matter how you're getting there, you're almost 1/3 of the way up the hill to the Penthouse.

Well done @markmcclean1980  I've still got cigs in the house somewhere, just in case, mind you after 7 months or so I bet they would be bloody awful now lol.

Seriously chuffed to see you clocking up the milestones hon, you're really doing great!  I reckon you should plan a major celebration for your century :-)

I often think the knowledge in the back of my head that there was baccy, papers, filters, rolling machine, etc zipped into an inside pocket in my handbag was a major factor in my finally succeeding in getting free.  If it's working for you too then stay with it.

So pleased to see you into month four.  Like you, I'd never have managed to quit if I said right that's my last cigarette ever.

It would seem this system has worked for quite a few of us. I originally had 4 cigarettes left and later found another in a handbag. I've still got them ;D
