I forgot to think about smoking! Yay!





Quit Date: March 19, 2017


Posted April 10, 2017 


OK, this is the first time this has happened since I quit!! Even those moments where I wasn't craving one, it was constantly on my mind in some way, even if it was just "I'm not smoking, I'm not smoking..."


Today, wrapping up a work project into the wee hours of the night, I suddenly realized that I hadn't thought about smoking for ages!  :D So, there's hope!! It's exhausting to always have it on your mind, even when you don't want one. For me, this is the first sign that a future without thinking of smoking really, truly does exist. Looking forward to more and more moments like this.


Off to bed, but doing a happy dance. Had to share - to those wondering if you're ever not going to think about it - yeah, the time will come. Hang in there!!  :yes:  :good3:

Thanks for the post @jillar. I keep telling myself this time will come, so it's good to have reinforcement. Having crossed the 8-month mark I can go hours without thinking about smoking. But I'm praying that eventually that turns into days, weeks, months...  Hoping and NOPE-ing till then.

It will denali, I promise you it will, just keep on Noping! :) 

You may think about them but not in a I want to smoke kind of way. More like a wow I can't believe they're still smoking on tv shows kinda way. Two completely different thoughts and the latter doesn't bring any craves with it :)
