I had 3 years and 2 months without smoking cigarettes. Actually I had that long without nicotine at all! I felt triumphant and invincible because I'd been hooked, I mean without knowing I was addicted to the substance I was.
So as soon as I got to a point on stopping I called 1-800-QUIT-NOW and began my quit process. I called in when I felt like smoking and in return they'd appreciate my effort to quit and in return sent me FREE nicotine quit tablets.
I spoke to my doctor and began taking a prescribed medication to lessen the urges- and within 2 months I no longer was a smoker. I was no longer a nicotine addict.
It sounds simple and it was.
After 3 years and 2 months I started up again. My response to some raw emotions and life circumstances led me back into the spiral of buying more and more. I know that another quit is what I need and what I want.
For those out there planning on quitting like myself...there must be a pause in difficult situations when the 1st impulse is to get another hit. If it's what you truely desire YOU CAN QUIT. It's a choice to meet feelings and urges with facts and logic. And to no matter what not pick up.
I write this entry to commit to another longterm quit and urge you and others who are ready, to quit with me!
