$10,000.00 saved so far is tomorrow!
It has become very easy to not smoke now. And I'd like to thank myself, for "not smoking - no matter what"
Thank you team.
I've never seen a year so devastating in our country with severe drought, bushfires and flooding rains and when covid -19 hit my town closed down on march 17, we thought that was almost the end of the world as we knew it. We had an immediate lock-down. Fortunately, our local council got businesses re-opening in a few days and i kept employed right through the pandemic. I live well out...

So what happens when your motivation goes? That is one thing, but how does it go? Does it dry up? Burn out? Does it wash away or the ideation go stale?
How can we get it back and get back on track?
How do you stay motivated?
What institutes a successful Quit?
Lets brain-storm and get heaps of comments.
Just reminding people to stay committed. If its a promise to Quit? A pledge? Maybe a doctors order? Your child's wishes you to stop?

Happy Easter e...
Hello again, finally took the plunge two weeks ago and have no doubt my last smoke was Thursday night the 6th of February.

How is it that one packet of smokes is purchased almost daily?

How about hearing from those smokers that cant quite get there. Succ...
