Celebrate your milestones!
Every minute, every hour, every day, every week and every month you remain a nonsmoker is cause to celebrate. Granted, after you've been a nonsmoker for two months you won't be celebrating the hours as they pass.
During your first 72-96 hours you will probably be celebrating your victories as you go your first few hours smokefree then your first few days as a nonsmoker.
Success breeds success. The more you have a festive time acknowledging your first day, week, month and year of your quit the easier you can make the process. True, the discomfort is just that, uncomfortable. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun along the way.
Celebrate every time you reach a new milestone in your quit. Accept your victories, acknowledge your growth, own your lifestyle change!
