I'm onto my 3rd week of quitting (Quit Jan.01) and I am really starting to feel a lot better about myself.
I have gone 17 days without a smoke. I beat down that addiction and told it who's boss.
It feels so much better now. The withdrawals are fading, I don't stink like an ashtray, I'm not running out at midnight to get a pack of smokes, freezing my ass off on the porch trying to suck back at least half a smoke on the commercial break during the Leaf game. All the things I did as a smoker are starting to look so pathetic.
I still have moments where I really just want to sit back, relax, and have a smoke. But that is not what smoking was like. It was running out the door after a movie to light up. Sad.
My overall health is improving. I didn't believe that stuff all the quit smoking site said about that. But it is so true. More than I would have thought.
I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self to stick with my earlier quit attempts. That the pain and suffering I think i'm going through is minimal and temporary.
I feel free at last. That's my reward.
