Hello fellow quitters - Well, I'm two days short of two months and it's still really tough.     Only had a morning meeting today at work, but it was difficult to get through.   I really wanted a smoke.    But NOPE!     I am a smoke-free human being and that's the way it's gotta be.    I'm pretty optimistic about this.   I find that I'm having to re-define myself every day as being smoke-free.    It's still got a hook in me; it's like it's who I was, as a person.       Now there's another person.....still searching the meaning of life.

    Hi Don, I'm sorry to hear that you had a rough morning. I hope that the rest of the day will be easier and better for you. Hang in there. In two more days, you'll reach your two months milestone! Your hard work and perseverance is so great. Keep up with the positive thinking. You can do this!

    The worst of your battles are over Don so be patient with the the rest of the process because it is gradual and it just takes time. You WILL get to that point where being a nonsmoker seems like the way life should always be and you'll wonder why you ever smoked in the first place. Remember, it's a marathon not a sprint 😉
