However, the support I received from everyone on here was amazing, and without this service i am not sure i would be where I am no...

    Hi all today is my Birthday and i am 2 years 1 month without a cigarette or 761 days. I never thought this was possible in the beginning, I had smoked since the age of 13 I stopped one month before i turned 60 at which time I was smoking around 40 a day sometimes more. So it can be done. the longest I had ever gone without a cigarette was I think around 6 days, and I think I still had a puff ...

    Hi all, it has been quite a while since I last checked in. I find it difficult to believe that I no longer smoke, and even more surprising that I no longer even have an urge to smoke. To all those starting this journey, believe in yourself and take one day at a time, it can be done, I smoked for about 47 years, 40 a day at the end, and probably for the first 100 days, smoking was all I thought ...
