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!
Congratulations on the run! You sound like its been an awesome weekend! You are doing so great with not smoking!

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 :)
