Just short of 1000 days smoke free and a saving of $19,000! It is well and truly all behind me now. I no longer miss it at all. And what surprises me is that whenever we are out I see very few people smoking. I have just turned 60 and truly believe if I still smoked I would have been on oxygen. My breathing is so much more manageable. I am still using ventolin, when I need it, and have prev...
Am 3 months in. Have more self control, and enthusiasm, and self confidence. Am excited about my Christian Faith and Following Jesus Teachings. Aske for strength from God-Jesus and Holy Spirit, through out Withdrawl. Realize satan and Demons want me smoking again to ruin my Health. Getting out doors looking a this beautifull World and Gods Creation has been Joyful.
You can always savor being ahead in your fight against cigarettes but what I remind myself is to never start taking a victory lap.
Today is my 2 year anniversary of staying quit and I have added running and regular gym sessions as a way to savor my control over cigarettes
2 years on after an initial weight gain, I have since lost a bunch of weight and I feel healthier, look better and ge...
Hi everyone sorry I just reply. But I have sick and trying to lose weight. I have been off smoking now for almost 10 months and doing great I still have my doctor for support and I can quit family. But smelling people smoke around me doesn't worry me any more. So I am very happy with myself .
Hi all so as you all no I went for surgery few weeks ago to remove my thyroid and a couple and weeks later after that i also had more surgery to remove a lesion (lump) on my head just to make sure it wasn't anything bad.
I have has a long 2 weeks waiting for that result and I got it today and thank the Lord it was benign and no need to worry no.more.
I am so so happy and relieved that it's all...
I was like you - struggling with smoking. Even though I knew it was a harmful habit that was killing me little by little, I just couldn't quit.
Now, I didn't have any sort of spiritual revelation. I read the book Atomic Habits by James Clear and it helped me to understand how habits work, and so I started.
I began by filling my life with positive habits such as working out a little every day,...
This week I passed the 4 year mark and I'm so incredibly grateful everyday for the freedom I now enjoy from cigarettes, that once ruled nearly every aspect of my life.
This forum and Champix were my aids to succeed after many many failed attempts.
It was my calender anniversary of quitting reminder on my phone that popped up and prompted me to celebrate.... that's how nothing smoking...
1200 days and counting. Last week I had a cig in a dream. Woke up, no harm done - never forget to practice NOPE (Not one puff ever). So many benefits to being a non smoker but if you are on this site you know what I mean.
Good luck in your quest and cheers.

Well what do you know, just over 1 year ago I quit. It feels great. It was super hard but I'm so happy I stuck with it. I remember the first week or even month, it felt like years since I had a smoke, I missed it so badly. I'm guessing around the 7th month after quitting it started getting easier, I didn't think about it. I kind of forgot to think about smoking, funny. if I can do you all can do ...

Although I am still using the batches and gum, but I actually don't mind using it because it's much healthier than smoking.
Highly recommend anyone who find it hard to quit smoking to start with the patches, it simply helps.
I'll be six weeks quit on Sunday 1st June and it is literally a miracle to me that I can actually say that....On 10th May (exactly 3 weeks into my quit journey) my father-in-law passed away suddenly. It was such a huge shock and absolutely heartbreaking, we are a very close family so it hurt alot. The added stress of being responsible for funeral arrangements and everything else has ma...

Hi all, sorry i haven't dropped in for awhile, had 1 or 2 health scares
and under Drs. orders i had to shed some kilos. Being the impulsive type, I through myself at it and ended up with some more health issues. I forgot the old mantra K.I.S.S. Anyway Im approaching it differently, and appear to to be having some success without killing myself. The good news is I'm coming up to 16 weeks smoke fr...

I have been smoking for 20 years. Recently decided to quit because I want to live longer and see my new born daughter grow up. I have stopped smoking for almost seventh days now, being using the nicotine pad and mouth spray. It helps reducing the craving and the temptation of having a cigarette. Since yesterday I am starting to get muscle pain, constipation, etc. I search Google and found that al...
Last year I started on COPD formula treatment from Akanni herbs foundation, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 5 months, it reversed my chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, low energy, fatigue, chest tightness and others gradually disappeared. Visit Akanni herbs foundation official web page www...
