In just a few hours I will have hit the two week milestone and boy do I feel proud of myself. Last night someone walked past me with a cigerette and I couldn't believe how bad it smelt. I must admit I was worried that I would still like the smell and be tempted to go and kiss strangers... but I really disliked it so that is a huge hurdle that I have got over. I still have cravings but I am getting over them quicker and they don't last so long. I must admit that going public with my decision to quit has been a big motivator. I teach primary children and have been telling them about what a sad sack I have been the first few days and this is what nicotine does to you. The children are so supportive of me and I found out this evening that they are telling their parents how proud of me they are... well what a warm fuzzy feeling that gives me. I will never smoke again for several reasons.... one- I can not do this again, it has been so hard. Two - I know I am saving money and my health and three I can not let down everyone in my life who is cheering me on.
Stay strong and keep on in there... every day gets a little bit better.
