    Hey :)
    50 days is no small achievement. With Cold Turkey you are well away from the nicotine addiction. Just mind control to beat the habit now. Don't look back. Choose to be a non smoker.. You got this :)

    Can't wait till I experience that number as well. I can definitely say that the folks that have commented on your story have been a huge inspiration for me! Keep going and give us updates to encourage us new folks. Day 21 for me. :-)

    Hi colloquial. You have experienced some of the worst days and gradually it will become easier if you so choose. 50 days initially is such hard work as only those on this site can attest to. Ever heard a non smoker say they would like to light up? Probably not? So carry on and the former is not a reward for you perseverance. Onwards and upwards.
