 I look at it this way if I think about ever putting a cigarette in my mouth I’m going to remember how awful I have felt when I quit. That should do it. At least I hope. This is no fun at all. And I’m not a spring chicken lol 😝 

Pretty much how I still look at it Diane :)

The first days can seem like the longest days of your life.

 

Our perception of time ebbs and flows throughout our lives.  When we quit, we start doing two things: watching the clock and feeling somewhat bored as we're trying to figure out what to do with our time now.  That's a combination that seemingly brings time to a screeching halt.

 

You settle into your new life as a non-smoker, put some time between you and cigarettes, leave some milestones in the rear view...and before you know it the clock is moving at normal speed again.

I keep telling myself  patience is a virtue but it’s not helping very much lol. And I also have a lab Jordan7 my baby boy Samson. He been staying close by me. He knows something is different. Such smart dogs. I would walk him more if I had the Energy. I miss that the most. I can’t wait to have my energy back so I can join the gym! 

 

I have a black lab, his name is Cash.  If Samson is anything like Cash, you could always pass the time throwing a tennis ball for him to fetch.  He never gets tired of that game.

 

Eat.  Play.  Sleep.  Dogs are living the good life.

Samson loves to play fetch. And he loves swimming. Which I had planned on doing again with him today but it’s raining here. South Florida summers never know what you will get. I put my quit post up on Facebook last night. I got a lot of you can do it. I didn’t really tell to many people I was quoting right away. I’m lucky that most of the family doesn’t smoke.  Hope everyone is have a good day!

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
