It's been awhile since my last post.. A Lot has happened..
I have been smoke and nicotine free for over a month!
I have been in a few social situations involving alcohol and people smoking (both triggers). I have made it through without issue. Big accomplishment for me.
I have been exercising regularly.. breathing is getting much easier.
My mind wonders ocassionally (couple of times per day) but a quick distraction or deep breath and any craving or thought about smoking goes away.
Still taking it one day at a time.. I realize that I am not completely out of the woods, but I is definitely getting better!
