1000 DAYS QUIT!!!

Posted in Staying quit 22 Apr 2019

Hi all

Just checking in to report I'm still on track and continue to be amazed that I am actually here today 1000 days quit. I was seriously a tragic smoker and failed my quit attempts many times and often thought it was sad impossible. It just goes to show that if you don't give on giving up this insidious habit, you will be free of the shackles one day. I can even have a boozy night around smokers without worry and I sometimes forget that I once smoked.

This forum and its helpful members was a great tool in helping me succeed. Stay on track and best wishes to everyone on the journey to freedom.

    Hi Steve01. No doubt you are pinching yourself having reached 4 digits. That is huge and cannot go unnoticed by those on this site. It is either a milestone what others dream of or some can remember. it is such a good feeling not being able to think about being a smoker. Any such thoughts are just fleeting and fortunately disappear as soon as they appear. Nevertheless, we must always be wary of any silly ideas that pop into our heads.You know oh so well that one puff is one too many. Do celebrate your victory in style.
