"I've had surprising rash of smoking "thoughts" the past couple of weeks. They're not compelling at all, but this still occurs now and then even after 2 years smoke free. It's nothing intense though, just a bit annoying and easy to brush off. Big anniversaries and milestones seem to trigger some introspection. Then I just duck and cover, running back to the Q! Works every time to get the right angle on my thinking.
I've been marching through unfamiliar territory the last 6 months, never having been quit this long before. Can't expect a 47 year, 2-3 ppd habit to just go poof. I'm amazed that it has even been possible to quit having failed so many times before. The quitnet tradition includes various cyber rewards for anniversaries and milestones. The Golden Boot award is for 2 years smoke free, and with it I intend to keep on kickin' ash as they say!"
So that's the "big" thing in my life at the present time. I love being smoke free for so many reasons. I can't begin to tell you how many years and how hard I struggled to quit! Whew! Never over, but always getting better at it. If I were able, I'd love to kick up my heels and dance a jig to celebrate!
