Today is 1500 days nicotine/smoke free for me. Needless to say that I am happy and proud of myself. To all who are just starting out to fight for your freedom. It hurts only in the beginning but you'll be free, no cravings before you know it. It seems that in the beginning time slows to a crawl but as the cravings diminish it gets better and better. Practice NOPE (not one puff ever) and you'll ...
Greetings fellow quitters!
Just realized that 4 year anniversary being free from this nasty was yesterday. Time flies but one thing is certain - quitting smoking was hard but well worth it.
The good thing is that nowadays is that I have no fear that I will run out of a cigs that will make me suffer physically and mentally. Besides not being a slave to something that is consistently killing you...
After reading today’s stories a song by Queen “we are the champions” spontaneously started playing in my head. It keeps playing and I can’t get rid of it. Congrats to all my fellow quitters because to quit this addiction you’ve got to be a champion.
1200 days and counting. Last week I had a cig in a dream. Woke up, no harm done - never forget to practice NOPE (Not one puff ever). So many benefits to being a non smoker but if you are on this site you know what I mean.
Good luck in your quest and cheers.

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.

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.
