6 Months Smoke-Free

8:06 PM   ♥   1 Comment

It has officially been 6 months since I quit smoking! I don’t regret it. Yes, I have the occasional, “I could go for a cigarette right now” but the majority of the time, I don’t even miss it. I can breathe better. I feel better. I don’t wake up with pain in my chest from the way all that junk settled in my lungs or start hacking at random times. It’s the best thing I could have done for myself and all I did was stop. I quit cold turkey.

I’m not going to lie, I did not want to quit. I quit because the price was going up not because it was bad for me or because it was the right decision I quit simply because I didn’t want to pay over $8.00/pack. I decided the weekend prior that I was going to quit before the day the prices went up. I told A my plan and since he hated me smoking, he was very excited. I finished that last pack and didn’t buy another.

The first 3 days were the worst and I would go from being fine to sobbing. I thought of having a cigarette many times in a 5 minute span only to remember, “Oh, wait.” It was a constant back and forth. The first 3 days were the hardest but by 2 weeks out, I was okay. I’ve made it 6 months now. I’m definitely proud of myself and encourage anyone else looking to quit smoking to just stop. It sounds harder than it is. It seems like the worst thing. You don’t want to but you know you should. You can do it and you’ll be so glad you did.
