keep going take each minuet, day ,week or month and make it yours. I just checked in for the first time in ages .... 955 days smoke free before you know it plus 20k in the bank. Well not really in the bank, I bought a campervan and I'm going travelling. Stay strong all.
Wow ! 656 days amazing 😤 I was a 25+ a day smoker. Thought I NEEDED to smoke becauseof my husband who had mental health issues. After 40 years I quit on the first attempt. I know not everyone has such an easy quit experience. I am however happy to say here I am 656 days smoke free. over this time I also went through the death of my 30 year marriage, so no it wasn't always easy. I hope this can ...
Just amazing. 485 days. Very rarely think about it much these days.
September 12th 6 months quit ...... go me.
For those who are struggling you can do it, stay strong and determined.
101 days woohoo 😁
At 7.30pm today It will be 12 weeks since I last had a cigarette.
When I was preparing to quit, an ex-smoker told me 'if you can make it to 12 weeks you know you've beaten it'. At that time I found it difficult to imagine lasting so long without a smoke, yet now, here I am. Yah to me 🚭😇
Nicotine withdrawal has many forms, including depression. However if you are feeling down for more than 2 weeks speak to your doctor.
Has anyone else notice how clean their tongue is? Prior to quitting I use to spend ages each day trying to clean the plaque off my tongue. Since quitting I don't have the plaque, just a pretty pink tongue.
Does anyone know why this is ??? (any dentists in this community) Obviously its a sign of a healthier mouth, but why.......
I don't really think about smoking much anymore. I'm just an ex-smoker in my own mind anyway. At 7 weeks quit,
I do have the odd craving but they are becoming rarer. Now I concentrate on exercise and eating right.
