    Hi cough cough... Thanks for returning to remind us how good life can be without the habit. Also, you are probably battling to spend the money you could have wasted on cigarettes. I am saving $250 a week and it is quite an effort to send this amount. I can't. So it languishes in the bank book... Spent or unspent, it is always better than what we were doing with it reducing it to ash. Just know you will continue to enjoy the ride.

    I am nearly (15 days to go) 1000 days SF. Lia, I spent what I saved, firstly on a divorce Lawyer 🤠. Then I bought a camper-van. Next year me and my camper are heading off into the sunsets around Aus for an undetermined time 🚐🏝😎

    I was looking forward to the first week of quit then the first month etc, etc. I have now made 159 days or 5 Months & 1 week. I feel like I have successfully climbed one of the toughest mountains of my life. I am proud of myself in doing what I thought was beyond my reach..But I have to say the fear of stopping was harder than actually stopping. There were some unpleasant experiences but they were short lived and I came through the other end. Well done to all on this site.
