309 smoke free days. I can't believe I'm a non-smoker. For the most part these days I don't even think about it. I'm free. A few months ago I was tempted but it burned my chest so I'm not doing that again. I'm so happy.
Hi all again, thought I drop in to say hello. I am still going strong and my withdraws symptoms are almost gone. The weather has been very miserable, raining most of the time. It's given me the opportunity to walk my dogs more than usual. The dreaming is not as frequent as they were before. I feel much better overall and today when I went shopping. The store manager which I talk to sometimes came...
Stopping smoking really is mostly psychological. You must have the mental mindset that you don't want to smoke anymore. The physical part is over in about 4 days.
I was very unwell back in March 2020 which coincided with the covid-19 pandemic. I was actually frightened that I had contracted corona virus with my temperatures reaching 39.6. I was tested and negative for covid-19. I visited my GP ...
A respected friend came up to me while playing pool and said"Hi...I see your still smoking...you know, Ive been hearing some really cool stories and great things about smoking lately, and even thinking about buying a pack and start smoking too.

After reading ot...
In the past the cost of cigarettes was never a motivating factor for me to give it up. I would find the money and just go without other things.
However it was annoying at times that I didn't have a certain something and just had to improvise. I calculated today. I would have purchased 14 packets of cigarettes by now at an average cost of $40 per packet. Wow that's $560 i have saved. That's a ...
Well, 9 weeks now.. really past it, smoking that is. Looking for ways to lose a little weight that I gained along the way.
After reaching a year since my last puff on the 6th of February 2020, I set myself toward another goal.
$10,000.00 saved so far is tomorrow!
It has become very easy to not smoke now. And I'd like to thank myself, for "not smoking - no matter what"
Thank you team.
How is everyone? I just ticked over 21 weeks off the darts and I thought I'd drop in to see how everyone is doing and hopefully let my story show that if can do it you all can!
Stay strong, would be good to hear how you all are going, especially those who helped me out in the first few weeks!
