Wow almost a month. I’m very proud of myself but I still at times feel like I miss it. More so in the evening, not sure why. I hear the 3rd month may be difficult because of the season change however I usually quit in the winter and find it easier because I didn’t want to go out to smoke in the wet cold weather but this time I quit in summer so hopefully the season change in 3 mths won’t bother me as much.

    Big congrats on your 1 month smoke-free, Korene!  You're doing amazing.  Great to hear that you're being mindful of the 3rd month.  Remember that all the coping skills you've been using up to this point will be helpful for you then.  Being proud of yourself is important, you've put a lot of hard work into this, and the sense of accomplishment is wonderful!

    And so you should be Korene,  as we all are of you.  Try not to focus on what the seasonal change will bring, just focus on reaching freedom for the time being.  It's within your grasp and I know you will succeed because you are strong and can do anything you're determined to.  You've already proven that,  by being quit for a month.  So take it one day and one step at a time and before you know it you'll have achieved your ultimate goal.  Three cheers for you, Lucille.

    3 months of establishing your quit and making it strong can take it's toll on us mentally. Be proud of what you have accomplished. It's no easy task. Celebrate your hard work and reward yourself with something a little special Korene. 
    Use this 1/4 year mark of your quit to start focusing on all the benefits you now enjoy as a nonsmoker. Yes, you will still have to stay vigilant in keeping your quit and there's still work to do in retraining your brain to be totally comfortable as a nonsmoker but the really difficult days are largely over. That's something to celebrate as well :)

    I think no matter when we quite, we will go through different challenges such as, for me.  first holiday, first camping trip, first time paddleing my canoe, first time washing and waxing my  truck.  all triggers.  but im over 8 months smoke free.  yaa
