I have to say as I am coming upon 3 months of not smoking how nice it is not to crave very much. I no longer can stand the smell of old smoke it gives me headaches. The thought that I used to smell like that drives me nuts. I can now pick out a smoker anywhere weird really how this happens. I swore I would never become one of those ex-smokers but I fear that I am. I keep telling myself I was /still am an addict as well but choose not to feed it any longer. I am all over the place it's hard to put into words what I am feeling other than pride and a sense that I can do anything if I put my mind to it

Awesome, isn't it Kranky?? Absolutely NO reason to go back.

Congratulations, and remember what the oldbies say, it just keeps getting better.

It is approximately around this time frame that your no longer counting the hours or days, rather weeks are the new milestones.    Maybe even months are the benchmarks now?  Either way... you are free.  Free to do as you please when you please without the hassle of accomodating the next fix of nicotine. <<  That truly is FREEDOM.   You have learned how to overcome and adapt to just about everything.  There may still lie a bump or two in the road but NOTHING like the beginning and they will be easily defeated. 

Maintaining the quit is the new norm, and like with everything else it most certainly does continue to get easier and easier. At some point when your not "looking", you'll see that it takes no effort what so ever.   I still remember my last difficult day more vividly than my last smoke (which I don't remember at all).  Looking back on it I see how overcoming that day propelled me even further into my future of oxygen normal (opposite of nicotine normal).  It was like a big ol' springboard into the promised land of comfort without nicotine.

Congratulations on regaining life as it was meant to be.  Stay on course and by all means enjoy what you've accomplished.  This is where the fun begins.

Take care.

Shane..  After 20 years pack a day, been quit for 3 years 3 months.
