I just wanted to let you know that, so far, I am still a non smoker, and 95% of the time, I am feeling so good about it. I do have the odd time when I feel a little strange, but not once have I had the desire to light a cigarette. Its hard to explain what I'm feeling - just a little void or emptiness maybe? However, this feeling usually passes, and I am back on top of the world again pretty quickly. I hope the others on the course that day (30 Dec) have also been successful. I was so sure that I would be the one to fall at the first hurdle, and to my surprise, I do actually find it easy. It is unbelievable. My mother is convinced I am taking some form of drugs as she just cannot believe that I am in such high spirits and full of enthusiasm. I know it has only been just over 2 weeks, but I have it firmly set in my mind that I will never light a cigarette up ever again. I just keep reminding myself that it was that first cigarette that started me on that awful slippery road and I never want to be a slave to nicotine again. I am in shock as to how simple it has been Dianne, and want to thank you for your assistance. I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday the 9th Feb 2010. I will, by then, have been a non smoker for 6 weeks. What Joy!!!
