Woohoo! It has been 349 days since I gave up smoking. After 4 failed attempts over the years to give up, I am so pleased to be finally free from it.
To those that are just starting out - good luck, and keep trying.
I am happy. Really happy. No cigarette this morning, which has been my only one for a few days and I AM STILL ALIVE AND SANE. Except maybe for all of the capitalisation!
But really, as I lay in bed this morning contemplating getting up, I only had one concern, which was getting a paper finished today. Of course I wondered how I would go about not having that cigarette, but it t...
Ok - Today was the last day of smoking! I had 1.5 all day and didn´t even think about it being the last ones. The half that I had was the last one I guess, and I put it out before Id finished just because it was pointless and gross to smoke it.

The amount that I am smoking is drastically reduced simply because the urge isn´t there, and they taste funny - almost like the first cigarette that you ever smoked - , and I am not even certain that I want one ...
NOTE: Prior to today, I was a 3-4 cigarette with morning coffee person, 2-3 after lunch, 1 in the late afternoon, 2-3 in the evening.
Had my pill in the morning. Slightly nauseous for about 20 mins, then had a banana. Seemed to fix it.
Morning: 2 cigs and a coffee: All three tasted funny - coffee was more bitter than usual?
Subsequent cigarettes: 2 after lunch. Both al...
