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...
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 ...

Maybe one of the best things newbies can do is to return to this site often initially and post how they are dealing with the quit trail. Quitters do well the they can share positive thoughts and why smoking for them is such a dead end pastime. What positive things can they offer to fellow quitters? The more positive posts made the more likely they are to believe it themselves. Say it, hear it, be...
Hi all Gary here just to let you know that I am going strong. On the 10th of this month it will 5months since I gave up smoking and I feel good. The doctor ask me how I why I stayed of smoking.

8 weeks today I have been free of the beast.
My Nanna died of emphysema aged 60. Such a nasty nasty way to die. She was on oxygen, and once she actually set fire to herself because she lit up with the oxygen still attached. Didn't stop me smoking.
My mother had a massive stroke aged 64. She lives in a nursing home now, she has no quality of life. She is 68 now, but might as well be dead. ...
When I originally joined the iCanQuit site I was very pessimistic on my success. Being a 20+ cigarette smoker for 30 years with very little will power made me think I was no chance of being able to quit.
But I'm a month in & although I know there's a long way to go (I quit for 9 months 20 years ago) I'm confident I can beat this stupid addiction. I put my success down to the messages I received...
