Drink lots of water. Be kind to yourself
I joined the day I quit 8/8/2017, I look back now and what a struggle day 1 was but we all start a new path at some point, this was my day. The first few days, I rememeber sleeping a lot, then I remember playing a game to get my mind off my old habit. I remember car rides a trigger for me and fighting through those urges, thinking those were going to last and last and after a few times of doing i...
3 year anniversary today. The things i am happy about being a non smoker:
1) no more smoker’s cough
2) thousands of dollars saved on cigs and spent on other things,
3) no cig smell,
4) no more cravings,
5) no more fear that I am about to run out of cigarettes.
Things I miss about smoking:
1) Nothing I can think of.
Good luck to everyone who are still suffering. Believ...
The cravings do eventually die down and in my case even the dreadful dreams about me having smoked have stopped.
I have also added regular exercise to my lifestyle and since lost 25lbs. I had gained quite a in the 6 months following my quit but now all of that gain is gone and then some more.
Now that I am home, I do think about how I would have spent my day smoking had this virus spread ...
So I'm now 66 days smoke free. The cravings still come & go but I've been off the patches for 10 days & haven't noticed an increase in the cravings. I did 4 weeks of the step 1 patches & 4 weeks of the step 2 patches. I've got a weeks supply of the step 3 patches but will only use them if the cravings get really bad. I certainly don't consider myself an ex smoker yet, I think a part of mind think...
Keep attempting over and over until you succeed, with each attempt your mind and body remembers these times of abstinence and you will not only know what to expect but you will become stronger at not smoking. I was on patches and smoking intermittently for 6 months, i kept trying until i got to a point where i told myself no more i will not have another smoke. I found that the first 6 weeks going...
I haven't shared in a long time, but I wanted to let you all know that I have not smoked now for 282 days and I feel really good about it. Just 2 months ago I was still feeling like why did I do this but it was like the 7th month quit I just felt like wow I did it. Now I rarely even think about a smoke. My husband is now in the process of quitting. He's cutting down gradually and using ...

So 18 months today. Its not easy. I'm one of those people who still thinks about nicotine multiple times a day even after 18 months.... I think I'll always feel this way... No, it's not as bad as the first three months but it is annoying.
Other news, I final.had the balls to get a chest. X-ray ... After 20 years of heavy smoking I was sure there would be cancer or other disease ...
