It was 2 months ago today that I quit smoking. I remember that night coming home and calling Susan and telling her that I had quit and when I told her it had only been 6 hours I could hear in her voice that she was maybe hoping it had been more then 6 hours. She had never met someone that said they were going to quit and then just quit, so she wasn't too sure I would actually continue to not smoke. That is one thing about me: when I finally decide I am going to do something I usually am pretty good about following through with it.
When I quit last spring it seemed so easy. Yes I had some hard times, but this time the first few weeks were really hard. I think the fact that I was in a relationship this time made a big difference. I know that first week I was horrible to be around and pretty much a mess emotionally. Six days after I quit Susan and I were suppose to get together and she had to cancel and I sat in my office and cried for a couple hours. I am thankful that she hung in there and stuck with me through it.
As of today I have smoked 1500 less cigarettes and saved more then $200. 1500 cigarettes...that is a lot. I still have days where I would love to have a cigarette, but all I have to do is think back to those first few days when I quit and I never want to go through that again.
