Month 5... here we are again
« on: July 24, 2017, 08:34:18 am »
So once again I reach the milestone of 5 months.  I am still going by the philosophy of 'if I really want a cig I can have one' and it seems to be working.  I just spent the weekend drinking and didn't even get the urge for a puff but I still refuse to let my thinking change.  I know that one day I will see myself as an ex smoker but as of now I don't want to make that commitment, although I can't remember the last time I had a craving for a real cig. 
Still, I am proud to say I am on day 122 today and have a full 4 months behind me.  Now I just need to detox the liver after a crazy weekend lol

Well if it is working for you then keep going.... 122 days is 1/3 of the way to a year so it's working out quite well. But as our Doodlss says 'constant vigilance' is a good thing.

well done Mark.  You just stick with the I will not smoke today mantra and let tomorrow take care of itself.
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.
