The First 24 Hours

As the first 24 hours as a non smoker are nearly passed I let out a deep sigh of relief.

I am not sure whether to think tomorrow will be easier or not. Obviously I am hoping it will be easier but that doesn't mean it will!

In the scheme of things today was not really that hard. There were a few times I could feel myself start to crumble but then I just thought of my dear Quit Club.

I have publicly stated my intentions on quitting, I can not let the public see me fail. There are so many people out there who have gone through the same as me. They have been able to come out the other side shining stronger than before. I really want to be one of those people.

I know in the past I have scoffed at the air of superiority that they walk around with. Now I understand it! I want that feeling. I have had it before but for some reason it wasn't enough back then.

It will be now.

I will join the ranks of non smokers. Noses raised proudly to the sky as we inhale nothing but freshness! Hoorah!!!! Who will join me?

HD you are so kind. Well done for your efforts as well. I know it is particularly hard and you are doing amazingly well.

You wait time will just fly by and it will get easier and easier
