3 year anniversary today. The things i am happy about being a non smoker:
1) no more smoker’s cough
2) thousands of dollars saved on cigs and spent on other things,
3) no cig smell,
4) no more cravings,
5) no more fear that I am about to run out of cigarettes.
Things I miss about smoking:
1) Nothing I can think of.
Good luck to everyone who are still suffering. Believ...
Yesterday I was cleaning out my utility room and found an old electronic cigarette. I am not sure how long it's been hidden in a cabinet but I found it. So there is a little push button on the side of it that I stupidly pushed to see if it still worked . Here is the part where I call myself a total idiot because I put this thing in my mouth and inhaled. In a few seconds I get an urge to smoke and...
Finally I am into quadruple territory. Wishing it happened earlier. With the money I saved we got a nice computer that my better half appropriated, a nice Toyota Camry and a van for my daughter. Couldn’t have done it without quitting. I am a quitter and proud. Stay smoke free and enjoy being smokeless. Cheers.
Howdy all, Wishing everyone happy holidays and all the best in the new smoke free year! Checking in at 999 days of being smoke free. I attribute 30-40% of my successful quit to this site and getting support from everyone by reading everyone’s stories. Thank you all who contributed. The other 30% came from NOPE mantra - not one puff ever. The rest of my determination came by way of cigarettes beco...
Another milestone, 900 days. Considering how much my life was ruled by cigs with every aspect of my daily routine scheduled around smoke time while erroneously believing that I couldn’t live without smoking I still take my quit very seriously. One puff and i’ll be right where I was 900 days ago - addicted. Been there and never want to go back. It’s not easy but most definitely can be done with t...
Still staying smoke free and vigilant. No more cravings to speak of. Actually, sometimes I wander why I was addicted to cigarettes begin with and that’s a dangerous territory for me. Thus, I have to practice NOPE mantra - not one puff ever. To those who are just starting out and still fighting your nicodemons believe in your inner strength because this is one fight is worth winning.
800 days and counting. Feels great: 1) no more morning cough, 2) no more stink, 3) no paranoia of running out of cigarettes 4) no more wasting money on something that was slowly killing me.
Smoking was my personal prison and I am out and finally free.
Good luck to everyone in your own journey to freedom.
789. I am not into numerology but I do like the way the numbers lined up 7-8-9 smoke free days.
Looked at my app and I noticed that today I hit a jackpot, 777 days being smoke free. Feels like I won a grand prize in Las Vegas. Free from this awful addiction and feeling good. Recently someone asked me if I thought about smoking is a disease and I think it is an acquired disease. I started smoking for fun because it was cool back in the days but two weeks after starting out I realized that I ...
I am curious what happened to your ashtray(s) after you quit? Mine were such an integral part of my daily routine. I am still using my ashtrays but for a different purpose now. I use them for spent shells of sunflower seeds and nuts. What about yours? Cheers to all!
