Everyone is welcome to add their own entries and comments. Here’s to not smoking!!
I quit smoking on October 5th. I put out my last butt at 5:30pm. At the time, I had a few smokes left, and was going to the drug store to buy more. I came back with a box of Nicorette gum instead. Since then, I’ve chewed 6 peices of nic gum. I’ve switched to Wrigley’s Extra Sugar-Free instead.
Today will mark day 19 for me. And I’ve not had one puff since I quit. I’m very proud of myself and my strength, even surprising myself at times.
Last Friday, DH and I went to a Nine Inch Nails concert. DH still smokes. LOTS of NIN fans smoke too. But I held strong, armed with two packs of gum. I even joined DH out on the smoking terrace at the arena, but just for a minute because it was so thick, I couldn’t breathe. During the concert, people were smoking all around me. I’m sure I inhaled enough to be counted as smoking, but it wasn’t by choice. I still stayed strong, and chewed my gum instead.
I’m doing this. I AM A NON SMOKER!!
