I'm excited today because I have 5 months today and I'm very happy about it. The time has gone by fast. When I first started this quit I wasn't sure if I could make it. I had tried to quit before during my 43 years of smoking and always failed. I went to the doctor and told her I want to quit really bad but I don't know if I can. She put me on Wellbutrin and I've been lucky with it and it has no bad side effects for me.When I smoked my last cigarette I cried and look down the road and I could not picture my life without a cigarette. How was I going to have any fun on my vacation, how was I going to handle stress, happiness etc. I was not sure this was going to work because this had been part of my life for over 40 years. I was tired of this addiction controlling my life. I missed out in so many in activities and family functions due to the fact that I had to run off somewhere and have a smoke. It controled my every move. A few days before my quit I found Daily strength. I wasn't sure if I could do this and discuss my feeling with strangers. It didn't take me long to find out that this site has a lot of wonderful caring people who have helped me through the rough spots I had.They were all doing the same as me and trying to get rid of this addiction. I thank God every day for leading me here. For all you newbies out there this can be done. Keep coming back here to your friends at DS for support. This is a terrible addiction and the nicodemon is always lurking but you can kick him out of your life every time he comes around and believe me he will be around from time to time trying to get you to cave in.I also live with a smoker but we haven't smoked in the house or car for 4 years now..I can't believe how bad it stinks. It's amazing how I know where they are kept but I have never gone for even one in the 5 months. Just keep coming here it works. Good luck to all of you in your quits. You can and will do this.OH yes something else to think about. I have saved $566.10 and didn't smoke 3,047 cigarettes.This is on an average of a pack a day. Boy over the 40+ years of both my husband and I smoking we would have lots more money. I now think of it as burning money to get yourself sick or the big C. I hope this can even help one person. I will be happy. Be strong and keep on DS for tips on things that will help you.
