Well folks it has been exactly one year since i gave up smoking...i remember outing my last cigarette with a scream. 33 years of smoking i started when i was 13 and my body was still developing.
It was a tough year i'm not going to lie - my chemist gave me sprays and patches but i didn't bother to use them...what i was missing is the routine of lighting up, sucking on the tip of that cigaret...
Hello my name is shawntae Baskerville and I am so proud to say that I am 30 days away from being A year smoke free. I did it cold turkey and for me it was easy after 3 days like they say the health benefits are so great let alone I want to be alive for my kids
It has been about a month since I checked in last, I have been reading your stories and it is great to see so many new names starting your individual journey to a smoke free life.
I wish you all well, it is journey that we must embark on in our own way, for me I needed the assistance of Champix, my husband has just begun his journey he had been trying to cut down however, after a serio...
So another milestone for me....19 months smoke free, and according to my save calculator thing, i have saved over 6k...although that figure should be higher at the price of cigs today.
Love the freedom I have and when I see smokers, I pity them and just so happy I'm not them anymore.
Goodluck to all of you on your quit journeys.

Still going well, still take chewing gum now and again. I had a mail from I Can Quit reminding me it was a year and telling me my risk of heart disease is halved compared to continuing smokers. The health benifits and the money saved are just great motivators. The freedom you get is amazing!
Hi fellow quitters. Another milestone reached for my personal quit journey today. I live with a chain smoker so getting here is even more special for me and I feel stronger for it.
It really is a mindset thing and no matter how or what aids you use, the important thing is to quit completely with the conviction of forever. Thanks Champix, thanks "My Quit Buddy" app (highly recommend it) and ...
When the initial angry 😤 cravings die down after a period of time then the odd thoughts creep in unexpectedly. I needed to train my mind to quickly change the subject in my head by reading a magazine 📚or anything to distract me. I found that dwelling on the cigarette thoughts was an unhelpful 👎 strategy. 814 days now an very very occasionally the unexpected thought still pops in.
Well, who would of thought i would be saying today.... i have achieved reaching 800 smoke free days....what a journey. I survived not being dictated to by something i never thought i could get rid of from my life,
How lovely it is to not smell of an ashtray on my skin clothes, and my home n car, i can leave the house and not concern myself on having enough smokes for my duration away from the h...
762 days nicotine free and am still surprised that miracles can really happen. For 53 years apart from the odd sick day I smoked incessantly. For the last 30 years of the 53 years I hated myself for smoking and really was so badly addicted. Now I am free I still find it so exciting. Every time I'm at an event or out for dinner I watch the poor smokers who need their fix. Feeling so grateful.
