Will be quit for 9days at 9pm tonight. Cold turkey and strong will power ,even though my partner smokes I haven't had the urge.

I want to be trul...
Today I am reminded of many reasons of my decision to stop smoking! It been 50 days of freedom of pollution to my body, but also 50 days of convincing myself I know longer need that in my life.

Your words have reminding me why I should stay nicotine free, and what good it will do for me. ...
