I'm 40 and smoked for 26 years. 150 days ago on the spur of the moment I decided to just quit. The method I used was cold turkey and will power. I smell better. I taste better. I was pretty fit to start with so as yet I haven't put on any weight and still enjoy a cold beer or glass of red. I am crankier than I ever was before. I just don't suffer fools anymore and now speak up rather than retreat with a cigarette. This worried me at first but I realize I am living life head on and honestly, rather than hiding behind a smoke screen. To everyone on this site like nowanonsmoker and mickey thank you for all your positive comments. I am moving overseas in about four weeks time and feel like I can honestly face any challenges smoke free. The thought of a twenty hour flight no longer creates the anxiety it once did.
