Just over 5 years ago I finally quit. When you first quit smoking Einstein relativity of time concept is immediately put to test. First hours, then days and even months seem to drag on very slowly because your brain is deprived of the most important daily routine that makes you feel normal.
As more time goes by it starts speeding up and you are back to normal and the need to smoke is gone. The...
If this dude was able to quit you certainly can too.

Yesterday was a nice round number of 1700 smoke free days. As the time marches on, smoking has become a distant memory but each day I am truly thankful for my freedom.
To those who are still struggling, my only advice is to keep practicing NOPE - Not One Puff Ever. It works and it's real.
Stay strong and you'll succeed.
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.
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.
