    I can`t believe its been 40 days since I have quit smoking. I have to admit I am quite proud of myself. I have tried to quit many times in the past and have never made it over a month. Now I watch my numbers keep going up and loving it. I do at times wish I could just have one puff, but I know that if I do I will start smoking again. So that is something I will not do, I can`t ruin everything that I have been working so hard to do. And yes I do at times get cravings that just don't seem to want to go away. I will work through it and continue my journey as an ex smoker.

    Hi jenny12,

    Congrats on 40 days for being quit!

    It's great to see how motivated you are and I'm sure it's been an inspiration for many of us here.

    Any plans to celebrate getting to this milestone?

    I have planned a trip this summer to visit my brother and his wife. Every payday I put 100.00 into my savings account towards my trip. I am planning on doing some shopping while I am there since I live in a small town. I also buy myself something every payday, something either for myself or for my home.

    Thats awesome, Jenny12! All those dollars saved sure do add up, and now you are spending it on things and memories that make you happy. Rewarding yourself consistently, no matter how big or how small, keeps the motivation high. Enjoy all your treats, Jenny12, and keep up the amazing work!
