74 days in

Posted in Staying quit 12 Jun 2018

74 days today. Very cool to see the number of days ticking over. Not missing smoking at all now. My advice to anyone that is interested is to use a quit smoking app on your phone that gives you info like how much money saved, time not smoking etc. Take yourself away for 4 days minimum anywhere peaceful and just sleep the cravings away. I slept and ate so much the first 4 days but hey it worked for me. All up i gained 6 kgs but my weight has stabilised now and im working on losing it. Money ive saved has been so so good and i could actually afford to do things like dentist work and treat myself to some nice makeup. Quitting smoking is probably the most rewarding thing ive done in a very long time.

    74 Days well done, yeah i slept alot in the first couple of days of quitting I was very tired and did put on a bit of weight as well not sure how much. You are right you would of saved a heap of money. I'm over the worst of the withdrawals now it's just a mental thing. I'm 12 days into the journey and about to move to step 2 patches i hope to be off them soon becuase of nightmares so i don't wear them at night

    @webbquit. Had a lot of crazy dreams on patches as well and the final time i quit just went cold turkey. You are doing well so keep it up! It is worth the trouble.
