I just realized that today is 150 days not smoking a cigarette! that is almost 5 months.
I still chew on gum but find times it doesn’t seem necessary. In fact, I’m finding times I hate that now.
I have been amazed with this. With all the stresses in the world today with politics, Covid, shortages, etc. I haven’t felt the urge to break down, but a pack of smokes and light one up. Although I have to admit that I sometimes crave a clove cigar. I’ve resisted those as well.
I guess the real test will be when I completely stop using the gum. Which will be soon. I’m tired of $8 a box but that still works out cheaper in the long run compared to a pack of cigarettes daily.
