Well 16weeks now.. Getting easier, can find myself a little restless at times. Gotta keep busy, is a good thing. Notice the money savings. Feeling alot healthier, although gained weight.
After 20 years I have finally quit smoking. The cost and the dependence had finally got to me. I decided to go cold turkey and quit any triggers that could tempt me to get back on the band wagon (alcohol, coffee, ect)
10 weeks and counting have not picked up a cigarette and will never do so. First 2 weeks are hard but after that it gets so much easier.
At the moment I seem to be havi...
One Year Today I gave up Smoking. I no longer cough every morning. My energy level is so much higher than when I did smoke. I hardly even think about smoking anymore. I have more time to do productive things (I never really thought about how much time smoking actually takes up). My bank account is a lot healthier. I got a chest Xray this week just to make sure all was well, it was. I know ...
It has been 6 months and I have been really good. But I have had to deal with a smoker opposite my unit for many months but for some reason it is really affecting me tonight. Help

14 weeks now, its hard drinking alcohol and not smoking. Just something i need to deal with. I'm getting through it still. Dont want to smoke and rather stay smoke free. I've reinforced myself with lots of knowledge and follow my quit plan. On with it i guess!
Hi Everyone! I wanted to touch base to let you know that I’m still 100% quit. I’m only 5 months away from 5 years. For those who are new to quitting, it does get easier. The day is coming very soon for you that you will only think about smoking once every few months (if then). It took a while for me to get my life back on track after quitting but even when chronic illness, I managed to get a ...
I saw this comment by PuffNoMore, and I quote..
"I am wondering when an addict to smoking nicotine, becomes free? Is it true once an addict, always an addict?
Is there a time limit to reach to be a declared Free? "
Please understand, This is only my opinion, based on many years as a smoker, and now being able to look back, objectively..
Some do say, once a smoker, always a smok...
Well, 12 weeks no smoking. Off the Patches and gum now. All on my own, into the unknown! I feel confident and relaxed. Hard to believe i quit, from a pack a day. Gotta take it easy i guess.
It's six months since my last smoke. The time spent on smoking has been spent on family, friends, reading, exercising, and watching good movies. Never been more happier. Thank you to all in the community which has been my support during this journey.
