More than 6 Months since I Quit Smoking

As of July 10, I will have quit smoking cigarettes which will make it a little over 6 months. In that 6 months I have not had a single puff, Not One! It has not been an easy road and I am very proud of being able to quit smoking. In fact, I think it is a miracle.
For those that are trying to quit, or will soon be quitting, I can't stress enough how important it is too get mentally prepared first and win the battle in your mind. I would love to smoke a cigarette right now but I know I can't. I don't or won't even let my mind debate it. Folks win that battle and the cravings will go by a little quicker.
As far as my cravings go, I still have them regularly and sometimes they are intense. I really thought that after 6 months the cravings wouldn't be too severe and maybe just a few times a week. Not for me though, I own a business and things are not going that well and its damn stressful. I can't believe I have been able to beat smoking but I have.
I'm really busy now so I need to run and I will try to check in more frequently.
