I'm not perfect. I'm one of those people others might refer to as a bogan. Can of coke in one hand, ciggy in the other. I started seriously smoking when I was working in hot air ballooning. You'd get up at 3/4am and i would have had 2 smokes in the car on the way then at the shed gassing up I'd have another with the boys, the balloons would be in the air and by this point I'd be 5 smokes in.
I've tried so many times before. Getting to 3-4 weeks then a night out and that's it. This time it wasn't a thought out thing I just woke up after a heavy night out with an empty pack and thought that is it.
Everyday just think of how much better I feel
My start date is officially Saturday 26th Feb.
I have a wife, daughter and my second baby is 8 weeks away.
10 years of smoking but now when I smoke I think of not being around for my family down the track. Not to mention how smoking isolates me from my family now.

Who wouldn't quit
So, today is 5 months! 153 days. It feels really freaking great. While i do still have slight smoking nostalgia (and maybe always will?) I definitely feel like the hard part is over. Though I have heard stories of people slipping up after 5 or 6 months, i'm really going to work to not go down that road!
I do feel like i've gained a bit of weight as a result of quitting and as i'm in the northe...
