    Hello

    My Journey to a free Smoke life or Mirror of my self!

    Is Unbelievable how powerful was my Addiction that even do I am smoke free for a long wile, I just have the most Powerful crave ever I confront my Powerful trigger cause failing to smoke guess.

    Dried Tears, failing from my eyes and my blood was starting to boiled. That Voice told me Go by a Pack! Just only one!It was like 5 minutes. But Not.

    I grab my NRT and use it! then goes away! Ho! My!

    That was Horrible, I know was my Addiction, so I challenge my self to see how did go! Some one said Holiday Madness!

    I guess all that time as Non Smoker and reading all the post; training my self to quit, made me stronger to hold that Horrible feeling and Happy to share it, because is a Victory, Now I will be ready for the next one.

    Be strong! be focus! NOT A PUFF EVER! ONE DAY AT THE TIME!

    I'm so proud of you, Brieffree, to resist such a powerful crave and turn to an NRT instead of a cigarette!  I think you are right - your long history of non-smoking now, plus all the mental discipline you have built up really helped you out.  I also think it takes personal strength, which you obviously have.  You have shown me that all the work is worth it in the long run.  You have won a big victory today.  Congratulations!

    Hi brieffree,

    You should be really proud of yourself for resisting the craving and moving on.  Way to go!  I know that it wasn't easy for you, but you did it.  You have learned a lot on this journey and you used your NRT and said Not One Puff Ever!  That is fantastic!  I am so glad that you were strong enough not to give in.  You have come too far, and it is really important for you to stay smoke free.

     I spent Christmas with two of my sisters and they smoke like chimneys.  It actually made me start to feel sick in my chest.  And when I left their place, my clothes smelled really bad.  I am so glad that I could stay strong, too, and not smoke.  I am much happier being a non-smoker, and I feel like I achieved something great by quitting smoking.

    Good Morning brieffree,

    Thanks for sharing this experience with everyone, you have to know that you were certainly not the only one struggling with those holiday cravings! 

    Congratulations for making it through without smoking! As the others have said, all that prior experience and making sure you had access to an option like the NRT paid off , and that was all you!

    Your post is such a great example of how preparation and quit wisdom can lead to a successful battle against those cravings!

    Keep up the good work and keep us posted!
