Nearly 18 months quit and feeling really grateful. Worth the pain and anxst of the first few months. Thanks to all those who helped me through the worst. And thanks to this forum. Cravings completely gone. New Gibson 335 guitar. Thousands saved. New self esteem. Clothes don't need washing so much. Cough gone. Blood pressure normal. 100% good doctors report after check up. Who wouldn't quit
17 months since I last smoked on September 7 th 2015 and going really ok.
Can't pretend that the first few weeks were easy because they were almost unbearable but just bearable. Having smoked for 53 years it was always going to be difficult but I knew it would not kill me.
I never denied that I really wanted a cigarette but that I needed to quit more.
My wife had recently gone through a tr...
503 days since my last cigarette and still can't believe after 53 years smoking I have finally quit ( just for today as they say ). My youngest son who is 40 has quit recently as he is so impressed.
Great to see so many quitters on here going the long haul. Jenno Lia Cranky Johnny and quite a few more. Great site and great quitters. All have been so helpful.
Whatever issues are ongoing in my daily life it is so so so important to remember the gift of freedom by quitting smoking. Daily visits here to see how others are doing is essential and a great reminder that smoking was bondage in numerous negative ways.

Hi Folks. Just to wish all fellow quitters a very happy Christmas and a Nicotine free New Year.

Today I am 457 days away from my last cigarette and feel so grateful. When I quit at 67 after 53 years abusing myself with poisons I sort of knew this time I meant business.
My wife had had a triple heart bypass and detested everything about smoking.
In 2008 I had three heart stents put in and still carried on.
I always knew that cigarettes were self destructing but rationalized it in the m...
