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!
Just passed a two Year anniversary mark. An interesting part to my quitting process is that I had a time bending experience. What I mean is that there is always before and after smoking, but more importantly in the beginning of my quit the time started moving at a different pace. I found out that without smoking my days became longer because time had slowed down. There were no more smoke breaks. ...
Hello all fellow quitters!
A new milestone in my quit journey. Not bad for someone who always said that I have a will and have the power but I have no willpower to quit smoking. That was my standard answer to everyone who asked why I smoked or suggested that I quit.
Fast forward to today and I am no longer a smoker, not in my mind and not in my soul. My former "best friend" is gone and demis...
I want to wish everyone happy and safe holidays and a smoke free New upcoming year! It’s no secret that a lot of former smokers slip up right about this time of the year! It’s a party time, drink in your hand and you are a feeling pretty great and your so called “best friend nicotine devil” whispers in your ear that just one puff won’t hurt anything. Stay vigilant and employ NOPE concept- not one...
A random thought just popped into my head that I reached another milestone in my quit. I realized today that I no longer understand why I used to smoke. However, I do remember the pain of quitting. I wish the same realization to everyone on this forum.
