I have been running around town all day telling anyone who asked, and some who did not, that I am 46 days smoke free. When I logged on here I see my count up clock actually says 47 days. Makes me feel proud of myself! And that I lost track of the days is huge to me. It means I am not so obsessed with it anymore.
I spent the day with my dad, who has Alzheimer's. He lit up twice in my car because he simply cannot remember not to. He was constantly holding out his smoke and asking if I wanted a puff. I would just say no thanks Dad. The same way I would say every few minutes, we're going to lunch Dad. I kept it simple.
Wow - 47 days is HUGE!
Stay vigilant, though - for you are traveling through No Man's Land. That is the period from 2-4 months when, complacent in your quit, you can experience intense crave ambushes that can bring you to your knees. As long as you are prepared for them and use the tools that got you through the early days, it will have no power over you!

I am new here Jules, reading what you have written it has given me alot of faith. My day starts on june 10 and a big part of me is ready now but scared, and waiting to c if patch will help 2. Went to dr. and my air waves are closing really fast and if i dont stop smoking i will end of smothering myself. Now i have 2 little girls i want to live. So if you do not mind i was wondering if maybe i having a bad day may i talk with you. I need some one strong. :Like I said just reading waht u wrote has given faith
