    Day 268

    Posted in Staying quit 8 Dec 2016
    10 Comments

    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 ...

    Day 151

    Posted in Staying quit 13 Aug 2016

    WOW!!! Day 151 At the beginning of this journey, I thought maybe I will be able to do this at least long enough to enable me to have an operation that the doctor thought I might have to undergo. Well it turned out that I didn't need the operation and I haven't had a cigarette either. I know that deep down I'm still a smoker and even one puff I would be smoking full time again, so I take o...

    Hi all, it has been a while since I have posted. Last post I celebrated 100 day's, I can't believe how fast the last 29 days have gone, I can now get through a day without constantly thinking about a smoking, I now sleep better most of the time. I have gained a lot of weight, so I will have to deal with that soon, I don't know if it's the weight gain or just the time of year but my health ha...

    Just sharing - Wednesday was my 100th day smoke free, WOW, congrats to me, never thought I could do this. I have spent the last couple of hours reading through my own stories, what a strange journey. The support and thoughts of all on this site have been invaluable. It also highlights how different we are and at the same time how much alike. Even after this amount of time being smoke free, I st...

    Well who would believe it 65 days without a cigarette, well certainly I wouldn't have, but I have done it. This week has been the worst for some time, I have been unwell and the urge to smoke has been full on, don't know why but I have always wanted to smoke more when I have been unwell. I am back off to the doctor next week for a check up hopefully whatever this is, it is just a bug. I am so h...

    Today I am still smoke free, 59th day and coming to terms with the new me, heavier than before but at least I am smoke free. So today I have been shopping to buy some clothes that are not so snug, I can not fight my weight and my addiction at the same time, I am sure that in the future I will be able to get my weight under control. At this point in time I fight the urge every day but that is OK I...

The urge to smoke is always close but at the moment I seem to have the a handle on it, I think I might also have a better sleep pattern the last 2 d...
