Oh what a bloody Newbie I am with my silly 37 days. 199 Euro's saved by not smoking 740 cigarettes. Not a single craving. Nothing is missed. Not a thing.
I spent lots of time reading here, not because I feel my quit is at risk, but because there are tons of information tidbits that will help down the road, reinforce positively or prepare one for coming challenges ahead. When you are facing your quit mostly alone as a single person without a whole lot of social support and are surrounded by smokers, having a site like this is a good thing because it allows you to celebrate your accomplishment. There are only two places on this planet where nicotine has no voice, power or influence. Whyquit.com and the inside of my mind.
Addiction as a self study topic is turning into one of the most interesting topics for me. How can something that is so utterly complicated and information dense come down to being beaten by such a simple abbreviated sentence such as NTAP. Step one was to acknowledge and accept that this is not a habit but a deadly addiction. Freedom is always one smokeless breath ahead. Just take this next breath and remain true to your commitment to NTAP. Not now, not an hour from now, not today, probably not this week, month or year. Sorry, we have a life to live and freedom to experience.
