Hmmm, reading over this post again and seeing my post from before I have to agree with Tessa.

WE SURE HAVE COME A LONG WAY, BABY!

To all who have just recently quit, I promise it just keeps getting better and better. As long as you remember the golden rule:

NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF!

Hugs,

Amy

I have been free for Three weeks, five days, 40 minutes and 28 seconds. And have not smoked 780 cigarettes, have robbed Phillip Morris of $108.54. I have added: 2 days, 17 hours, 0 minutes.

Wow! I find myself so awed by reading these posts. How different and how alike we all are in our addiction and recovery. I have been lucky so far with screams, laughter, fears and tears as I am on Christmas break and have spent the beginning of my quit basically alone and am free to vent any feeling into the air without fear of affending or affecting anyone with my outburst. Oddly enough though, I seem rather numb and void of emotions at the moment. At this point it all seems about counting time, getting through one hour and then another. I find it difficult to accomplish anything being void of motivation. Please assure me that this phase will pass because I am generally a very motivated, energized person with some goal in scope that I must work toward accomplishing. As always your support is overwhelming and I thank Freedom and staff for being ever available. For the moment my motivation will have to be the accomplishment of 1 day 11 hours 23 minutes ,51 cigarettes not smoked by me, $7.35 added to my savings and 4 hours 15 minutes added to my living.

Thank you so much!!!!! For me life began 5 days ago when I made the decision to throw away the smokes I can see clearly now in more ways than one. I know what you mean about making big decisions to change something major in your life and for the first few days its really slow after a couple of weeks boom it will start flying. I am not concerned about the next 2 weeks or 3 months, I am focusing on right here and now.....
Thank you again and may you all have a Healthy & Happy Smokeless New Year, Your Freedom Sis Suzanne

Well today I had some real tear and fear time. I talked to my dad, who has been smoking since he was in the sixth grade, and found out he has been sick for 2 weeks. That's when the fear came and tears and pain. It was for him, but I'm so used to dealing with all these emotions by sucking them in with my inhale. I've never dealt with my feelings (or tried not to by smoking) and they're quite overwhelming. I have been going to this sight more and more recently. It really helps reading and sharing this stuff. I am so glad I have somewhere to go so I don't have to give up the fight. Tha nks for sharing everybody!

Thanks for the encouraging words. I've been there lately. 3 weeks today and I am proud but also experiencing a sense of loss that I can't explain. outoftheashes
