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...
I have been away from smoke for more than 6 month now.
Now if you ask me about my journey, it was roller coaster for first month but then it gradually started getting normal with intermittent cravings .
Let me be very honest today to admit that there are situation or times of my day (some days only) when I really feel to smoke a cigarette or two and feel good BUT I also know...
Just passed a two Year anniversary mark. An interesting part to my quitting process is that I had a time bending experience. What I mean is that there is always before and after smoking, but more importantly in the beginning of my quit the time started moving at a different pace. I found out that without smoking my days became longer because time had slowed down. There were no more smoke breaks. ...
To all those doubting their ability to quit and also those wining the battle, if I can do it cold turkey I hope you can too. 1399 days and counting. Just like this milestone, tomorrow will be another one. Felt exactly the same after day 1 and then day 2 etc. One foot after the other. Move forwards and hopefully not backwards. Such a good feeling to listen to one's inner positive thoughts and not ...
It's been 190 days but it looks like I stopped smoking yesterday.
Thank you all
I am following NOPE Policy. I.e. Not One Puff ever!!!
It isn't easy, but Champix certainly helped me. I have been a smoker for over 40 years and always thought giving up would be too hard after a couple of half assed tries. I finally tried Champix last year and have now clocked over 200 days smoke free. It really is worth a try.
I agree that it increases your appetite and that sleeping is a bit harder, but the eating urge only lasted for a couple...
I can hardly believe I am so close to 1,000 days. Tonight, I was around a whole bunch of smokers. The first few whiffs of smoke in the air were nostalgic but then the smell started to stick to my clothing and I hated that! I probably think about smoking maybe once a month, sometimes once every two months. If you are just starting out, believe me, there is going to come a day when you won’t eve...
It’s been 1000 days since I had my last cigarette, I can’t believe it, I felt so amazing an i’m so determined to stay off the cigarette, I don’t want to look back on the cigarettes, It’s too expensive to buy a packers smokes.
