My desire to smoke again is leaving me completely. I feel so happy with this and I am using the money saved towards a gym membership, travel and some new clothes. Whenever I feel a bit of a slight craving I take a few really deep breaths relishing that fresh air instead of toxic fumes. Exercising now is quite easy for me. I am finally letting go of the feeling of a need to smoke. Once you commit ...
Checking in to celebrate over 3 years of being nicotine free.
Reminder to keep going. You got this.
It's day 48. Was it easy? Absolutely not!!! But I am still on track. I am a self taught artist and recently picked up crocheting so I keep my hands busy. I started walking a mile a day with a friend and doing everything possible to stay QUIT! It's now become a mind thing. Like I am missing something. When the urge comes, and it comes, I breathe in deeply and exhale a few times and thank the Lord ...
Hi, I stopped smoking in September 2021 and I was going well for about 5 months which included a few slip ups of a single cigarette. Then in Feb 22, I had a couple of operations in hospital and for some reason around this time I felt highly stressed and smoked on and off for a few weeks.

I quit cold turkey and did not want any nicotine in my system. I've tried several times in my 43 years of smoking to quit but what got me, like I said before, was the results of my CT scan. The word Emphysema hit me like a ton of bricks. I've seen what that disease an do to a person and I don't want that if I can stop the progression I will do my best. I'm not religious but I have a relationship...
Started experimenting with smoking at about 10 years old. Guess you can say I got hooked at maybe 13-14. I got caught smoking so many times that finally, at 16, my parents gave me permission to smoke in the house. Fast forward age 58 had my first CT of the lungs for cancer screening and well what did I expect the results to look like? Mild emphysema. I remember my grandfather struggling with emph...
