I decided to check how long I have been quit for, and I am pretty stoked with the no. 477. It's so weird, I feel sometimes like it hasn't been that long...like it's only been a month. And i feel pretty proud. So everyone on a quit journey, You can do it!!! 🤩🤩🤩
10 months Today!!! Wow..it really blows my mind that I haven't had a cigarette for 10 months. It's the best i have ever done, even longer than when I quit whilst I was pregnant.
And when I first decided to quit this time round, I was so scared..didn't want to fail..didn't know how I would get through the days..I was a 10 cigs a day smoker, very habitual. And I enjoyed them!!
But my kids (14 and...
I must say I am shocked to see how much money I have saved on this quit journey! I have been shopping probably too much. But figure now I can start saving those extra dollars and spoil my children at Christmas.
Am also starting to curb the over indulgence on food and treats..cos those extra kilos have come on.
But it still is an awesome achievement, and the cravings are definetly few and far be...
Got to work on my short temperedness but all in all going pretty good. Definetly thinking of it less, but there are still daily monents where the want arises. But I'm doing this..for me and my family.
Good on those starting out! If I can quit after 30 years so can you 😊
Keeping on track! Love the savings and love that I'm committed to this No Smoking thing. I am doing the patches..and ready to go to phase 2..I have issues tho..skin rashes and easily sunburnt! But have persisted on this program cos don't want any hiccups!
Feeling proud. Good on you fellow quitters! 🤗
Love reading everyone's stories 😉
Week 3 woo hoo!! But that silly brain receptor telling me and reminding me how I used to like smoking is really Annoying!!!
I guess after 30 years of it, it's only natural..
I am loving the fact that I haven't smoked for 3 weeks now though. Hope everyone else is doing well 😊
Feeling happy with myself...Have given the kids a few lil treats with the money I'd waste on cigs usually!
Like reading all the positive stories on here!
Some inspiration taken from them all.
Still one day at a time, but working on my mindset!
Day 2 has been a long day! But I have made it through. I am on my 4th attempt in 17 years..and have smoked for 30 years!
I have enjoyed smoking for my time out and to socialise over these years. But I hate the fact that it's damaging my health, my children hate me doing it..and the money I waste doing it!
When I could be saving for a holiday with my family!
I am using Nrt ( patches and gum)....
