Wish: My wish coming true

This wish has been granted!

I made a wish on *Mittens* original thread that I wish to be a non smoker!! Now although I am aware that I am the only person who can grant my own wish, I wanted to share with my fellow wish makers and granters that I have been SMOKE FREE for 5 days!! I also want to give credit to this amazing thread that has allowed me to stop procastinating and get down to business!! Thank You for this !! Wish me luck that I continue to be the non smoker I have wanted to be for years and NOT eat everything in the fridge and cupboards in the process!! :-)

I was 22 years as a smoker now 4 since quittingOh Henry chocolate bars was my substitute for the first 3 months .  
Dates to remember 3days,3weeks3months and 3 years.When I quit this is what a fellow told me are the dates to watch.Sure enough right around these time frames was when the cravings appeared again.

You can do it! Way to go! One day or hour at a time. Hope you have a big jar. Pay it a 1.00 every time you resist the craving. Watch it grow!

Thank You everyone!! And Roger you're right about the 3's, well Day 3 anyhow, I found it extremely harder that day and was extremely 'cranky'.  
I like the idea of writing down what I would like to do with my 'non smoking' money- Thanks Sharon

I quit nearly ten years ago after smoking for 33. Pistachios were my friend for a few weeks. That and a lot of will-power.  
You can do it!!!

I also quit smoking, around the 3rd week you might get a little testy with others, just keep a smile on your face and dont say what youre really thinking lol, but it doesnt last...just be prepared and prepare those around you :) Im not even going to wish you luck because you dont need it, YOU CAN DO IT :)

Awsome job. I just want to add that it is ok to be human and screw up too. Not that I am telling you to go have a smoke or anything. It's just when I was quiting this summer I had one really bad day and gave in. I started feeling really bad for myself, like I had failed and was never going to be able to do it right. But then I got it together and realized that I, like everyone else am human and it is ok to make mistakes. Just keep at it and you will succeed

I am now on day 10 !! It's getting easier.  
I tried the gum last year and hated it...I will continue with the patch for now till I feel I have the strength in me to do without it.  
I love how you keep track of the 'hours' JA Scott, sometimes I feel like I need to go minute by minute as well.  
Congratulations to all that have succeeded !! I am walking beside you all!! :-)
