Still going well, still take chewing gum now and again. I had a mail from I Can Quit reminding me it was a year and telling me my risk of heart disease is halved compared to continuing smokers. The health benifits and the money saved are just great motivators. The freedom you get is amazing!

    Hi Dougie52. This is huge! A year is a great achievement and if you can do that you are going to be on a trail of success. Doubt if you are willing to take a backwards step. Trust you will continue to report back about your success and therefore inspire and reassure others it can be done.

    Congrats Dougie. My successfully quit friends used to say that once you reached the 1 year mark, it was pretty smooth sailing thereafter. They were right.
