I quit an over-a-pack-a-day smoking habit on 9/8/09, a year to the day after my father died of lung cancer.

Sobriety date from alcohol was 5/9/17. While staying in inpatient rehab, I bummed a cig out of boredom and being around a brazillian smokers. I was instantly back to a pack a day.

Quit again over Labor Day Weekend 2017, and it stuck. Just hit my year the other day. Still sober from alcohol and related as well.

So today is 4 months.. I have mixed feelings. On the one hand I rarely ever think of smoking and can see clearly now it was adding literally nothing to my life. On the other hand I feel like there have been "sacrifices". The relationship I mentioned has taken a turn for the worse most likely due to my clingy and neurotic behaviors. Which have amped up since quitting because sh*t has gotten real emotionally lately, I've had to change my coping mechanisms and still sometimes question whether I'm really doing ok or not (just in general). Hard truths to look at and keep looking at but I know I'm making progress and there's really no turning back at this point.

I also have to acknowledge the rewards.. I've made serious changes in my diet, exercise routine, work, hobbies, home, etc.. I have a new found confidence. I'm no longer chained to the next cigarette, and I know that alone really is priceless.

Just wanted to vent a little but how is everyone else doing? TOD are you still around?

I've been trying to quit the cigs again for a good part of this year.

Now I'm near the 72 hour smoke free, I really hope to have an easy week with minimal cravings.

good luck to everyone!
