Four months since I am smoke free

Posted in Staying quit 14 Feb 2018

Hello friends, today marks four months since I am smoke free. What a wonderful world I missed in the past 30 years while I was a smoker. I am free of nicotine and the dependency syndrome attached to it. Above all, I can hug my kids and anyone without feeling ashamed of my body smell. I walk three times a week, my new hobby, ten kilometers on average each time. I feel so much healthy and young again. Whenever I see a person smoking cigarette I feel sorry for that person but don't blame him/her because I was the same some few months ago. There is a time for everyone to wake up and enjoy the good side of being non-smoker.

    Hey Brooky. That’s a great feeling when we have at last succeeded to snap the chains of nicotine. Great achievement for you and rewards for you and your family. Thanks for sharing.

    Well done, it is my next milestone as well and I hope I can follow your example, first I have to cross the 100 days ;-)

    Dear Markos, thank you for your encouraging words. Sure! You will do it! Just think of one day at a time: hours will become days and days will become weeks: Weeks turn to months... Important thing you feel more healthy and young every day.

    That's great. I know, my niece and nephews complained at times and then they would tell me I will get cancer and it worried them. Gosh, they are only 7,9 and 11. Day 4 starting. Inspiring story Brooky. Well done. Liz
