Hey Sparrow, nice to hear from you. Time does go by rather quickly doesn't it. Seems like it was just yesterday when I started this journey and look at me now. 115 days, never imagined it in the beginning.

Hey Pappy
Woo-hoo triple digit town is here! To think that just a few short months ago you were wrestling with trying to quit then going through the awful early days. Now freedom has arrived. This was no easy slog. It takes so much mental and physical effort and determination. Its an awesome achievement....well done! Now for your reward?? (Haha quitting is a good excuse to keep treating ourselves....and the rewards should just keep getting bigger and better) Dont ever look back!

Thank you so much for sharing Pappy! Very insightful and basically you are naturally doing what an addictions counsellor would tell you to do. Awesome work!

Hi Ashley!  When I first quit I thought that my addiction to nicotine was going to be my biggest challenge and no doubt in the beginning stages of my quit nicotine was definitely at the top of my list. As time progressed though I found that even though I was addicted to nicotine my biggest challenge was the mental aspect of my quit. Don't get me wrong it was surely the nicotine that kept me hooked that's for sure but after smoking for over 35 years it really is a mental game at this point. I was so used to grabbing a smoke for almost any reason or excuse. Something pissed me off,  stress at work, boredom, daily activities that just triggered the urge to have another smoke. Those are the things I continue to fight back against, yet every day gets just a little bit easier. To cope with those things I changed the time of the day I did routine daily activities, went different routes when driving to work. In other words I modified my daily routine which seemed to make a difference. Bottom line to all of this is you have to stay strong and take your quit in small steps. Don't worry about how your going to deal with a situation next week, deal with today first!
