Just a check in. It's my birthday and I just realised I have been smoke free for 219 days. I am very proud of myself. For all you fellow non-smokers I would like to say you should be very proud of yourself. You are doing amazing.
Hi All, its been 60 Days since I became a non-smoker. I am proud of myself. Come to think of it, I did not notice that the days have gone by so fast.
I have been doing cardio, walking and running. This has done wonders for my mood and appreciation for life.
One of my girlfriends saw me quit and quit as well. She's 2 weeks smoke-free now and I'm so happy for her.
To all you out there thinki...
It has been 21 days of being smoke free and it feels so good.
In the next two days i'll be visiting friends who are smokers. I'm sure they will understand that I don't smoke anymore. Really hope I do not slip up and fall into those "only one won't harm" traps.
I also do not want to be overconfident about having it under control. Yes my mindframe is in the right place and I have willpower but...
Wow I hit the one week marker.
Days 5 and 6 were emotional. As one would expect; the emotional rollercoaster had me frustrated at people, crying over the most trifling things. It’s been a mess. But I’m grateful I got through them.
Totally fitting to get into this non-smoker mindset. I keep telling myself “I choose not to smoke”, “I am not a smoker now” and yes it is all fine and I do not ...
I hate myself for slipping up majorly. Had two deaths in the family and fell into minor depression and major anxiety. What is wrong with me. I knew there was no such thing as having only “one smoke”. That escalated quickly into 7-10 cigarettes a day.
The self-hate is killing me. Man I feel like crap. This is my third attempt of quitting. I cry, and I hate it but I still reach for that sickening...
Hi Fellow non-smokers,
It is always good to check in here and see how people are doing with their quit journey. I am 4 months smoke free. I love the freedom of not being a slave to the nicotine stick.
I am thankful to my family for being supportive through my mood swing period. The quitzits are reducing, thank god. I have gained a bit of weight but it's no biggie.
To whoever out there think...
I cannot believe I made it to 3 months (93 Days!).
All this freedom feels so good. A few times I feel anxious/ slightly depressed and I think of smoking but then I think, the phrase "One Smoke won't hurt" ISSSAA LIE. Keep at it fellow non smokers!
Guys I love that I am now smoke-free for 30 days but these quitzits are driving me crazy. When I pop them, they bleed like a motherxxxxer. They are messing with my mental state and image issues. I can deal with the weight gain but these zits are annoying to say the least.
I am eating healthy (eating a lot but eating healthy) and try to get some exercise in twice every week.
Any tips to deal wit...
I am happy I have lasted 30 Days. But I am 5 kilograms heavier.
I actually told myself, "better chubby than being at a risk of lung cancer". But weight gain has its own health issues as well. Is anyone else gaining weight?
I am not as snappy or irritable like I was 2 weeks in but I am eating a lot. I know I should "exercise", "eat healthy" or "not overeat" but it is hard.
I have been quit for 9 days now. Days 5-7 were the moodiest, I snapped at people and just felt frustrated over nothing, really. Each night I keep having dreams where I relapse. During the dream I feel so guilty and heartbroken. When I wake up, it is such a relief. I read this is normal for people who stop smoking, how long will this last though? Tired of hating myself in my dreams for relapsing.
