Hi people just checking in to offer my support to newbies and ongoing quitters. I been quit 3and1/2 years now and absolutely thrilled that i quit. Thank God i breathe better and able to walk up hills not like before i quit. To add to this cigarettes in my part of the world are heavily taxed e.g. 50 gms tobacco now $95. Absolutely disgraceful and i could never afford to pay such a price. I feel ...
My brother died today. It was quite unexpected and not smoking related as far as we know.
Actually it was yesterday he died but it is 4:30 AM and I haven't slept yet.
Yes, smoking. To occupy my mind I started watching a movie. It was a period drama about the American civil war. At one point the action lets up and the hero pulls a pipe from his pocket, loads it and inhales the smoke.
I could ...
The five days leading up to the date I had set for quitting smoking were harder than actually quitting. The fear of giving up was actually what caused the most pain. After I got over the fear of giving it up, the rest was easy.

60 days smoke free today 😀 $750 dollars better off.
Health improving after 38 years puffing my life away.
They are just a thought now and I remind myself on how I used to cough and gasp for breath.
A poison I used to be a slave too.
It sure is a mindset thing for me.
21 years ago I was a hopeless alcoholic wreck. My drinking had cost me everything important in my life and most of that which wasn't particularly important. Finally, after my umpteenth attempt, I staggered into AA and got sober. Five years later when my sobriety was fairly secure, I decided it was time to do something about my smoking.
There were no NicAnon (Nicotine Anonymous) meetings in my...
I decided to check how long I have been quit for, and I am pretty stoked with the no. 477. It's so weird, I feel sometimes like it hasn't been that long...like it's only been a month. And i feel pretty proud. So everyone on a quit journey, You can do it!!! 🤩🤩🤩
Hi everyone just checking in I'm still on my journey it's hard not to keep count 1/11/19 I remember the last day I smoked a cigarette was before I had two teeth pulled on 1/11 they kept making a point to make sure to advise me not to smoke to avoid getting a dry socket and I just was so overwhelmed by the control anxiety it had over me I was more worried about not being able to smoke then I was ...
Just checking in. 334 days of being a non-smoker. I'm so happy for myself. I should do something to celebrate my one year milestone in November. A spa day? A weekend getaway? What did you do to celebrate your first year?
I can’t believe I’m at the 60 day mark. I’ll be super excited when I get to 365 days smoke-free, but everyday matters and small victories should always be celebrated..
Don’t forget to do something that makes you feel badass, all day.. Whatever that means to you!
1600 days smoke free cold turkey. 45 years and I would never have believed my determination. I just love the new numbers. Some are ordinary and some are so exciting. Hope you enjoy your journey as much as I do mine. So amazingly incredible. I am flabbergasted,
shocked, dumbfound, taken aback, bowled over, knocked for six, floored, astonished, amazed, astounded, stunned, flabbergasted,
