Just on 3 1/2 years quit and still can’t quite believe I did it after 53 years of self and family abuse.
Yes the early months were difficult but once my mind engaged in quitting 100% then things got easier.
There are numerous ways of quitting but I took a selfie of myself smoking my last cigarette and went totally cold turkey. Still got that selfie as a reminder.
Benefits as below
Cough totally gone and no wheezing
Clothes smell pretty good all day
Saved a fortune
Built a studio flat in my garage ( not bad at 70)
Won respect of my wife and 2 sons
Had green brown and yellow stains removed off teeth
No yellow and brown stains on fingers
Breath smells normal
Self respect intact
Don’t have to sneak out in rain and cold for quickie
Conjunctivitis cleared up
No midnight trips to all night garage
Lung function improved
Walk 2 miles a day without panting
The list goes on and on
Caviat. One ciggy puts me back to square one ( snakes and ladders )
