It’s been 1,3001 day without cigarettes. It’s the longest journey I ever quit smoking and I never ever look back.
Finally I am into quadruple territory. Wishing it happened earlier. With the money I saved we got a nice computer that my better half appropriated, a nice Toyota Camry and a van for my daughter. Couldn’t have done it without quitting. I am a quitter and proud. Stay smoke free and enjoy being smokeless. Cheers.
A nice early Xmas present. 200 days nicotine free!! :-) $5,803 saved.
I still have the odd moment or two every now and then when I have a mental craving, but it quickly passes. I can be next to someone smoking and not feel like I'll give in and ask for one.
Reading back over my early posts the thing that strikes me is the fear.
Fear about quiting.
Fear of cravings
Fear of the experience.
Howdy all, Wishing everyone happy holidays and all the best in the new smoke free year! Checking in at 999 days of being smoke free. I attribute 30-40% of my successful quit to this site and getting support from everyone by reading everyone’s stories. Thank you all who contributed.

Just popping in to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a smoke fee new year.
While I’m still smoke free for 109 days I’ve just gotten over pneumonia.
I went to the doctor and got some antibiotics and a puffer.
It was scary I was very much short of breathe.
But feel 100 percent now and not using the puffer as much
Smoking is not worth it.

Do I miss smoking? There are certainly times when I wish I could smoke without the side effects that I am well aware of. The cravings do appar from time to time but I am in control of my cravings. I also know not to be complacent.
The one side effect of quitting that I was not thrilled about was my weight gain. That too has become a non issue as I have started losing the lbs. At 10lbs now and...
Day 18 today. No NRT gum today and feeling fine. I've been chewing regular gum on and off since breakfast and haven't felt any need for the NRT gum. Really trying to rid my body of all nicotine.
Feeling more positive and energized today.
Also started reading Allen Carr's book.
Have a great day people!
Just popping in to say hi and to celebrate 200+ day's. I'm still going strong in my own mind, but the battle is real. I've started to exercise, but let's say smoking has pushed my health back tremendously . I have only myself to blame for abusing my body for 30 years with smoking, so i have come to reality that regaining what I have destroyed, will need time to recover. But just like quitting it...
11 Months tomorrow and I will at least give myself a chance to acknowledge something I don't like doing this because I don't wanna get to confident I know the road ahead is long I just ask God to continue to guide my steps any word of encouragement won't hurt
