First Post 2019 - Day 129

Posted in Quit experiences 08 Feb 2019

This is my first post for 2019 and I am glad to say I have made three figures, today is day 130 (129 days completed). My quit journey has been similar to Lyn4677 and I’m glad to also declare that I am still smoke free. Thoughts of smoking still come up but I have come too far to start smoking again.

Health better and need to stop putting money away in envelope as I have saved over $3600 which looks impressive as a pile of $50 notes. The cash pile is just a reminder of how much money we wasted on smoking. Time to waste some money on something frivolous but not unhealthy.

    Way-to-go John!!
    You stuck to the 12 week course on NRT just as the instructions suggest.
    It must feel great to not only be smoke free, but, assuming you are completely free of the Nicotine Replacement as well!
    Thanks for you support on here in the past. I almost kept up to you. I had it beat. I didnt remain as determined as you in one weak moment. I know now that I cant have one puff ever, otherwise I'd be hooked straight away.
    Your Free,,,,,CONGRATULATIONS,,,.

    Thanks all those who have supported me this far. PuffNoMore, it's great to be both smoke and NRT free something not long ago I didn't believe was possible after all my previous failed attempts. I still need to be on my guard as I still think I want a smoke some times, it isn't hard to resist these thoughts now but a little scary that they are still their. I guess a 50 year habit takes a while to be completely gone.

    If I can do it, Lyn4677, SuzyQ92, Robn and others can do it so can you. Don't be discouraged if you have a slip just keep going in the end you will make it.

    Thank you john.
    My last 3 or 4 serious attempts have left me drained of any motivation. So much disappointment within myself. I will not post another story until I'm smoke-free again.
    Good luck to all.
