Stories & experiences


Five years down and the rest of my life to go!

Posted in Staying quit 18 Jul 2017

Five years nicotine free for me, passed by five days ago and I didn't even notice that it had. I now think of smoking so little that the fifth anniversary of kicking my fifty-three year addiction to nicotine passed me by unnoticed. After fifty-three years of smoking from one to three packs a day, I wouldn't have thought it possible; yet, it did just happen. You can do it too! To find out how I did it, go to the website, and enter TheOldPhart in the “Search Entire Site” subject key-box and click on the magnifying glass. You will be provided a group of stories, ideas, and hints from me, that will help you to be successful in quitting too. I suggest taking less than an hour and reading everything I have written. It is all 100% honest and factual. The facts I learned the hard way and hints about how to make it easier are shared in every story. For your own sake, take maximum advantage of the tricks and advice I share so you too can miss smoking so little that your fifth anniversary of moving from the rolls of nicotine addict to “Recovering” nicotine addict can pass you by unnoticed. Once you make that move, you will have taken back control of your life from nicotine.

    Whoop! Whoop! Congratulations! That's a big deal! :). Thank you for telling us, its an inspiration to those who think they can't make it through a day or a week or a month.....

    Your risk of health complications has greatly decreased. According to my quit smoking app, your risk of cancer of the mouth threat, esophagus, and bladder are cut in half. Cervical cancer risk falls to that of a non smoker - but I'm guessing you don't have a cervix. It is 2017, so i can't assume. Hahaha!

    Once again, congrats!

    Hi OLdPhart. So good of you to take the time to return and encourage those who are on the quit trail.I have just passed 2 years and as there are not too many long time abstainers it is always encouraging to discover I am riding in the wake of a success story and am not alone. It gets scary when no long timers return and one wonders if the success will end as so few come back to report on their new life. Your contribution is appreciated. Your success is applauded.
