Hi all, happy new year and I hope everyone reading this is feeling good about quitting! I was reminded by an email sent by this site to checkin after not doing so for several months.
I was a smoker for 36 years. Heavy smoker. I am now 76 days quit. Life feels clearer, my mind feels unclogged. My eyes feel like they can actually see clearly. And I am pretty sure I smell great!
Hi everyone. Its been 2 years since i lit up a cigarette. The time has gone by so fast, even though my first day of quitting seem to go on for years. Quitting was one of the best decisions of my life, and although it was a bit hard at times, and i did'nt know what to expect, i was determined to quit. I think that determination plays a very big part in quitting. I have also saved a lot of money. T...

Firstly - thank you all for posting your stories! I love this site from far away in the UK! The thing I love that most about this site is being able to search past stories of others who were at my ‘days’ once. e.g. 200 days and then click on their name to see they are 2,3,4,5 years quit and that they don’t even think about cigs anymore. This gives me a lot of hope! I still find it difficult when ...
I "only" smoked about 12 day. So a pack a day smoker could have saved nearly $20K - and that's after tax - you would need to earn maybe $25K to have that to spend.
Considering 10% of Aussies earn minimum wage of just under $40K, and only another 30% earn between that and the median wage of $90K, that's a massive chunk of the take home pay going up in smoke.
I made a rule no smoking in the car. 6 months later 1 morning i had a smoke but was out in the car rest of the day. Dinner time i thought well, all day without and im exhausted so sleep. Next morning i lit 1 up had a puff and yuck put it out thinking later finish, but the yuck taste lingered so i just stopped
Merry Christmas everyone. Have a safe and happy and smoke free holiday season. Hoping 2021 will be a better year for all
I just logged on to see a very special number. 777 wonderful days free of nicotine ruling my life! Where 777 is supposed to bring luck and fortune, I feel I have found it a long time ago. Quitting smoking was one of the best things I have ever done. It also led me to losing weight and ahead of my goal on that as well!
The confidence I now have that I can do anything I put my mind to, after a...
Hello friends am happy to be here again, and am still on track struggling. Am on 7 months smoke free but still short of breath, feeling heat all the time at my left chest and body’s aches, feeling low energy and moodiness.heart palpitations all the time, I had done a lot of text al normal. Hope I will get better soon.
So far so good. I have stopped hanging around friends that smoke. Smoking was taking a toll on my breathing. I’m so glad I stopped I don’t have cravings much but when I do they are hard. I feel good so far been coughing and clearing my throat like crazy. Been to the doctors several times cause I’m scary lol. Doctor told me I’m healthy as an ox. I made a promise to my oldest son that I stopped two...
