Hi there kit,
It is a journey, and one that is so worth it. Everything we associate with ourselves has always been controlled by our addiction. If we are going out for the evening we check to make sure we have enough cigarettes, and as smokers we're constantly scoping out a place to smoke. For years we used smoking to comfort, celebrate, relax and calm us ... we've even turned to smoking as a reward. "I'll just sweep the kitchen, and then I'll have a cigarette ".
Of course you're feeling a bit down, kit. Not only are you trying to redefine how you live, you're having to leave "the smoker" who you were behind. So it's okay to feel sad.
You're spot on to focus on your reasons for quitting, and try to remind yourself all of this is part of the incredible healing you are working through.
Feel whatever you need to feel right now. You've been so strong, kit, and your strength will carry you through this.
