Day 3, Still going strong, though I don't mean to bore you, I'm expressing my thoughts here, to try & make it painless as possible not smoking.

It is my first time posting here. Today I am 10 days smoke free! I quit cold turkey. Today is also the first day I had a major craving while working. I recognized the trigger immediately - work and a cup of tea at the same time. I am a Graphic Designer and I usually work from home; it has always been easy for me to have a smoke while working and having a tea or coffee. Work used to...
Thought id come back and share a story for Christmas.
I gave up smoking on November 21 , 2012. I had major surgery and for it to be successful i had to stop smoking and I did.
37 years of lung busting finished . What a battle but worth every bit of it.
Started exercising , watching my diet , became single, met a new partner. go to shows and concerts regularly . 2 good holidays ev...
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.
I love to eat. I have been eating and making up for not really having many cravings while I was smoking. It is glorious, and I even savor the meals. I think I taste the food and drinks better. Plus, chocolate drinks just feel good to the bone.
I'm also getting back into doing some of the things that I used to be into before I really started to become a smoker.
And I think as a thing I am ...
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...
I have been a heavy 30+ a day smoker for near 17 years. I am now, for the first time, 42 days ciggarette free thanks to vaping. Already i have noticed a difference in my health. My skin, eyes, gums, less phlegm, easier breathing and less snoring. I'm less irratable and less lethargic. Luckily I have the options for flavoured E juice because I think having tobacco flavoured for me personally would...
I haven't posted since my 3 week mark and now I'm around 790 days since my official quit date.
I used a product that unfortunately is no longer available but I have to say it was just a catalyst to quitting that I was done with after week 3. From then on staying smoke free was about being able to breath clearly in the morning. Kiss my wife without chewing gum first. Not smelling like an asht...
