    Hi JDKeys
    Congratulations one year what a great achievement
    Today I am 897 days smoke free and sometimes i think I'd like one but it is mostly just a thought that floats through.
    I don't think it ever really goes away, my brother stopped smoking after having a heart attack, but started again after 2 years he thought he would just have one but I don't believe we can ever just have one.
    We must remember that we are addicts and like any addiction there is one such thing as just one.
    It does definitely get easier, but we must always stay alert
    Again good job on your 1 year

    Well done on one year! I too smoked for 30 years, and today marks 8 weeks of being a non smoker. It isn't easy, and to hear you say that you have those moments of thinking about having one but not doing it is so real. Yesterday I think i had a couple of moments where i really wanted one, but it does go away! Thx for sharing your story, 1 year is amazing. 😊

    Congratulations KDKeys!
    4 months quit and I sometimes do think of lighting one up but then I tell myself that even only one cigarette WILL Hurt.
    All the best on your journey being a non- smoker.
