Okay here is my usual start I am a 40 year old male who has smoked for 26 years. The last few years as I'm a shift worker I was smoking 1 to 2 packs of Winnie blues a day. I woke up one day and just decided to stop cold turkey today has been 63 days smoke free without a slip up. The most amazing thing is I have saved $1008.00 dollars. The number is so big it doesn't even fit inside the calculator savings box properly. What has and is keeping me strong is that I openly acknowledge that I'm still a smoker who can't smoke because I'm hopelessly and totally addicted. I know in my heart one puff will lead to one smoke which will lead to one pack. So whilst I haven't changed my friends places I visit drinking habits or lifestyle. I am open and honest to everyone that knows me about living with this addiction. I have found that my friends that smoke have been totally supportive of my battle when I explain my fears surrounding my addiction. I love living a smoke free life but love controlling my addiction rather than it controlling me. On a side note went to the dentist today and got my teeth cleaned oh my god it feels so good better than I have ever felt before. I would love to say I have bought something with the money I have saved apart from coffee but am not sure where it's all gone
