Dear Friends ,
Today I am returning back to this forum after quite a while. Always thought I would come back and pen down my thoughts but finally its happening today !!
So , next month i am completed my 3rd Anniversary of being non smoker. This has been an emotional journey for me because smoke was an integral part of my life. I shared my joy, hope, stress, happiness, sorrow, loneliness as we...
Dear icanquit fellows,
I dont know what to say. While I am typing this, I am in a very negative sad state of mind and really wanted to talk to someone who dont judge me and understand me.
This has nothing to do with my craving or smoking habit because I am cold turkey since 2+ years and though I am going through a lot of mental trauma, i dont really crave. Yes, sometime in the negative stat...
Dear Icanquit family members,
Havnt shared anything for long. I am doing fantastic. Don't crave anymore. Following countrywide lockdown seriously and religiously but no cravings. 570 days smoke free. New birth.। Am so thankful to God and u all who supported me in tough times. At times I feel to dare a puff but then I feel ok to stay frightened a bit about the monster. It's better to stay away a...
After so many years of loaded guilt , self destruction, fake happiness due to the smoking addiction, I am able almost 10 month guilt free, really happy that I have not smoked.
After months of hot and sweaty climate, finally it rained for a long time washing away all the negativity and leaving behind happy feelings and a fresh evening . Normally I would have smoked out of joy but now I enjoy...
I m 9 month away from smoke.. may be its just time that I am feeling very low mentally and emotionally. Getting vision of a quiet and lonely place with no one else but me smoking my frustration off .
I know logically quitting is a right thing but sometimes I am too much lonely and sad to even don't know with whom I can share my feeling . I feel.very weak when I think of starting smoking again...
I am 8 month smoke free now. Life is rather easy and I don't forcefully fight to stay quit. No smoking is a routine.
Having said that, I want to reiterate the most important stay quit mantra NOPE..
NOT ONE PUFF EVER
I always keep my guard on with this mantra.
Life is Beautiful now
Dear all ,I am wondering how much I regretted after every smoke and before next one for over 20 years .
In my new smokefree version, life can be whatever but no regret anymore about smoke.
I am quite satisfied and happy to make it till now and it's worth. I am around my smoker frnds everyday for last one month, but hardly I want to have a puff. NOPE (Not one puff ever) is my mantra .
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.
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...
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!!!

This is.not a hint or a tip rather a experience sharing as I feel motivated when I reiterate my success to myself yourself and everyone to whom I can frankly share that I used to be a smoker...

If you are reading , I believe it is right to assume that you are either looking for real life experiences after quitting or about to quit and getting mentally prepared for the journey.
Either way, I want to happily share some insights from my journey of 4 months without a single puff.
15 September 2018, I quit cold turkey.
It was difficult at first but things started to get...
