,Another "Just what I needed thread". As I read here a few minutes every day, it becomes clear that we are all different, and that this place worked for us for different reasons.
For me, this place resonated with me because it insisted you live your life after you quit, not run from it. And I did. I face every trigger and know what it is and how to handle it.
, I have avoided one place until today. The dreaded gas station/convenient store closest to home. When I was a smoker, the sweet lady behind the counter knew my name and brand and had them ready when I walked in. Today, I realized I was on E, and needed gas ASAP. I had to go in and pay. She had my smokes waiting as well as a we miss you where have you been! I explained that I quit smoking. She seemed a bit bummed. There is no point to this story other than I faced another monster and won.
One month, one week, three days, 4 hours, 59 minutes and 41 seconds. 1648 cigarettes not smoked, saving $452.83. Life saved: 5 days, 17 hours, 20 minutes.
