Today officially marks four weeks since I quit smoking. Four weeks. Fuck!
I never imagined I’d actually achieve this, and I’m so proud of myself for doing it and managing this long. I think this is due to a lot of factors, me not wanting to feel like this all the time..
(I’m a babe I know). The support of my friends helped a lot, they haven’t tried to force me to smoke or take the piss, they’ve been really good and I couldn’t thank them enough. I also think the quit smoking kit from the NHS helped too, I know I keep going on about it but seriously, get it if you’re serious about quitting. It’s got loads of motivational things in it, on my diary, today it says “I did it! Be really proud of yourself. What you have achieved is amazing. Now you’ve reached this point you’re far less likely to return to smoking.” 🙂
I’ve saved money too, it’s been great not having to make the choice between eating and just having to have that packet of cigarettes. The withdrawal symptoms have gone and I’m just generally feeling loads healthier.
I’d recommend quitting to everyone and I’d always be happy to help out a friend if they were looking to quit.
