I’m 316 days in I’ve come from smoking 70 rollies a day. The price of them at the time were $50 a day. I have since bought all new furniture, decluttered my house and have learnt new ways to cope with stress anc now have hobbies to keep me busy. I quit cold turkey with nicotine replacement. I’m slowly going down off them but will never smoke again. I thought I’d never quit. I got to the point whe...

Just short of 1000 days smoke free and a saving of $19,000! It is well and truly all behind me now. I no longer miss it at all. And what surprises me is that whenever we are out I see very few people smoking. I have just turned 60 and truly believe if I still smoked I would have been on oxygen. My breathing is so much more manageable. I am still using ventolin, when I need it, and have prev...
I didn't intend to post again until I hit the 2 week mark but I feel like a couple of you have truly taken me under your wing and I'm so grateful for that and wanted you to know that I'm still succeeding thanks to your help. So here it is...
Today I did my groceries it's the first time I've been to a retailer that sells cigarettes since I quit. I paid for my groceries and the lady behind the smo...
Day 205 and still smoke free. Still occasionally think I would like a cigarette when with smokers but quickly tell myself I'm a non smoker. Relatively easy to resist temptation now and I also dislike the smell of cigarette smoke.
For those just starting the quit journey or those who have made it further, it does get easier and is worth the effort.
It will be 4 years smoke free for me on the 2nd June this year. I have saved $13,192.00. I've spent it all of course :) It was the first time I had ever tried to quit and I was determined to be free. I used Champix and stayed on it as long as I could so that i had every chance of succeeding. I tolerated it really well with no adverse effects and 4 years later I'm still smoke free! I feel really g...
Just checking in to report I'm still on track and continue to be amazed that I am actually here today 1000 days quit. I was seriously a tragic smoker and failed my quit attempts many times and often thought it was sad impossible. It just goes to show that if you don't give on giving up this insidious habit, you will be free of the shackles one day. I can even have a boozy night around smo...
I am so happy to share that it's been 7Months since I had my last cigarette.
I am travelling and in the same hotel where I traveled 7 Month ago after quit and was struggling like a addict to smoke. This time I have no such cravings.
Yesterday night, I had the most vivid dream that I am smoking. And even in my dream I knew I would have to reset my quit clock.
Got up startled in the middle of the night and the rest of the night I spent tossing and turning unsure if I had really smoked or it was just a dream.
I am 8 months quit and it was humbling to know how much the habit messes with you.
Stay appreciative of the effort Made to quite......I feel so much better about myself as a non-smoker. No more shame, inconvenience, cough, horrible smell, expense, anxiety about when I’ll be able to have the next cigarette, freedom from the slavery. I have thought, many many times, about how I’d like to have a cigarette, but then I say to myself -“no, you really don’t want to do that,because it...
