Today marks six months since I quit smoking. Thanks to all
in the forums who have helped me along the way. My stats:
Days Smoke-Free 184
Cigarettes Not Smoked 6072
Life saved 46 days 9 hours 12 minutes
The Smokers Helpline sent me the following inspirational
email for this occasion. My reward will be dinner out tonight.
Today is six months after
your quit date. Half a year since you quit. Chances are, it hasn’t been easy to
get to this point, but it’s probably feeling a whole lot easier now than it
felt that first few weeks. A lot of people keep that thought in mind when they
get tempted this far down the road. It’s easy to think that just one puff
couldn’t hurt, sometimes. But try to remember how hard that first week was, and
you’ll find that it’s not worth the risk.
If you’re smoke-free
today, you need to celebrate, because six months is a big deal. Did you set a
milestone for today with a reward for yourself? Because you should reward
yourself. You absolutely deserve it. If you didn’t then, make one up now.
Either way, let us celebrate with you in the Smokers’ Helpline Community
Forums. We like a good party, and you may just provide inspiration to somebody
who is still in that first week. You’re their proof that it can be done. Keep
it up, and we’ll be in touch again in a while.
