It’s hard to believe, but just a little over five months ago I didn’t think I’d ever be able to say I’d be a non-smoker. I had just quit, but the cravings I was going through, even though they were dulled with the help of Zyban .. were difficult. It was hard to imagine that I’d quit for good – forever.
Now days go by and I surprise myself when I catch myself thinking about a cigarette. I still get the occasional craving, but it only happens a few times a week instead of several times a day now. That’s what I’d call progress. Considering that I quit on October 12th I guess it’s about time that cigarettes stopped ruling my life.
It’s funny how when I first quit, I wrote several posts about it and I’d get encouraging comments or congratulation comments, but I”d also get people telling me that I should switch to e-cigarettes. When I was really craving a smoke I checked out the e-cigarette safety information just to see how safe they are since I don’t know much about them. Anyway since I was being so successful with quitting smoking right from the beginning I wasn’t going to fool around with an e-cigarette. I didn’t want to start another habit.
I’m just happy I quit. I feel a lot better. My husband quit too. We’re both healthier, our house smells better and we have a little bit of extra money. Yeah!
