Once I realized how much I’ve been lied to by “the powers that be”, I have been free. Today is Day... hmm don’t even know... I quit on April 28th... not one puff, not one gum, not one vape, totally cold turkey...smoked for...hmm... 50-14... whatever that is... don’t want to get caught up in “numbers”.... I’ve put on a few pounds which is ok with me and I’m aware of it.... I’ve noticed my energy i...

Day 11 being a nonsmoker 🙏🌅❤️ I am quietly amazed at how the days roll by and it just keeps getting easier and effortless. Have a magical day everybody 🌅🙏❤️
Day 12 lol. I honestly didn't think I was going to make it this far. I have made a few changes since my last post, I am returning back to my normal daily routines, such as chores and outside activities. I am still not tracking my food intake, allowing myself to pretty much eat whatever I want. My plan is at my 21 day mark of quitting I will return back to the gym and start eating right again. I f...
Today is day 8 cold turkey. Mostly I am adjusting very well to being a non smoker. Now and again I will have a strong craving however it usually passes quickly. When I am experiencing a strong craving I remind myself that mostly I don't think that much about smoking and when I do it passes very quickly 😊

I also joined online forums. So good to feel supported and to feel that i was not alone! When i was feeling sick and tired during with...
Thank you to everyone that commented on my post yesterday. I appreciate that you take time out of your day to share thoughts, experiences, and encouragement. Please note that I am not a "throw my positive energy out in the universe type of person." I want to share my true feelings, my true struggles, and hope that my honesty helps others the way that other people honesty is helping me.
Day 6 smoke free cold turkey. I have more moments in the day not thinking about wanting to smoke than thinking about wanting to smoke however when the thoughts to smoke come they can almost feel like a compulsion I can't fight what a lie that is. There are so many reasons why I love being a non smoker and not 1 reason to smoke. I will stay strong not one puff ever😊Have a great day everyone 🌅
I got a reminder on my phone today that I was 150 days clean off cigarettes and alcohol. But I think on checking this site it’s actually 144.
After my last post I hit a really difficult period with the “junkie thinking”, autumn had settled in, it was getting cooler and I couldn’t put my finger on why on EARTH with all the benefits I was feeling why I was constantly thinkin...
First week recap:
Status: Married, 3 kids(9,7,3)
My wife is a non-smoker, hates that I smoke, and is pretty much taking charge with everything while I become useless and suffer through the withdraws. She's very supportive, and gave me the okay to pretty much do anything that I needed to stop smoking.
I'm 32 years old.
I smoke about a pack and a half - 2 packs a day.
Longest time I've quit ...
