Reached day 38 watching TV and was thinking about opening a packet of cigarettes and having a smoke. The strange thing was that instead of wanting to smoke a cigarette the picture in my mind was that smoking a cigarette was disgusting and I didn't want to breath in that smoke. I know I am still addicted to nicotine as I am using nicorrete spray, however this is the first time I can remember that ...
I finally gave up smoking 22 years ago after about 6 attempts. I’ve never looked back. The key is not to give up giving up.

But honestly, feeling so much better, breathing well, skin is clearer...
Today I reached my 1yr quit 🙂 365 days 😊In the first few weeks I thought I would never reach this milestone but I have. Huge thanks to everyone on here,quit line (Australia) and my hugely supportive family and friends for all the tips and support.
My mantra though this has been... every arrow not fired will miss the target 🎯 so for you all on this journey,keep firing those arrows and you will...
