Congrats on your decision to quit. Using Zyban in combination with an approved NRT worked for me. Your doctor was adamant about not using an Ecig because it is not an NRT -it is a substitute for...

Day 21, Busy Weekend!

Today is Day 28 on Chantix and Day 21 smoke free!

Friday I drove 4 hours to NC to meet up with my friend. She is a social smoker but smoked a lot more in the past, and gave me my first cigarette. We have a lot fond memories of smoking together. We went out for dinner and she smoked and I did not and that was that.

Saturday we ran a 5k together in honor of her son for a local autism society. I ran the whole way and had enough energy to sprint to the finish and finished in 30:18. That was a best for me (and still relatively slow enough that it leaves some room for future improvement)!! I am signed up for another 5k this upcoming Saturday. I listened to an audio book again on the drive and it really helped keep my mind off any cravings, I guess, because I didn't really have any.

Today I had a flag football game and visited my best friend for her son's 1st birthday and cleaned and went grocery shopping and dropped some stuff off at Goodwill. I will definitely be going to bed early :)

In other words, made it just fine :D

According to my app I am 2 weeks 6 days smoke free and have saved $74. Awesome!

Thanks!!

I'm not sure how she feels about it. I know she doesn't smoke that much, and we sort of talked about it, but I kept it more about my experiences and how great I feel vs. asking her much, because I didn't want to be preachy. She will finally quit when she is ready I'm sure :)
