I can't believe that I have come this far and there's no turning back.. I am a non smoker after almost 30 years.. it wasn't easy at the start but I kept telling myself I wanted to be around a lot longer and wanted to breath easier then I had before.. believe me if I can do it anyone can! Just believe in yourself and don't give up.. even if you slip up.. give up again!
202 days smoke free now and I'm also one week nicorette free! I feel so bloody amazing and healthier than I ever have.. keep going everyone and don't beat yourself up if you slip up.. remember success comes from failing now and then!! all the best x
YAY 93 days smoke free I couldn't be happier! It hasn't been easy and the urge still creeps up but goes in a few minutes.. gum has been helping me and I'm slowly reducing the number I have each day .. my family and friends are proud and impressed that I've done this as they have only known me as a smoker.. not any more!!

31 days today and what a wonderful feeling it is to take my gorgeous children out shopping and spoiling them with my savings from not smoking! I feel great and so do they coz their mum isn't smoking anymore and looking for a place to have a smoke when we go out. Spending more time with my children is so worth quitting!
I've just read through, properly this time, all of the substances that are in a cigarette. I can't believe that it's even legal! How can companies get away with putting poison in there? If I was to combine all of the poisons and sell them I would be arrested!
I have now been smoke free for 3 weeks today with the help of lozanges. I do have the odd craving now and then so I keep myself busy and have a lozange. I feel healthier and have saved nearly 500$ so far! I have been having so many dreams that I am trying to light a smoke but the lighter won't work! goes to show how much of an influence 24 years of smoking has had on me! Good luck everyone - we c...
