Stories & experiences


Be stress free and relaxed,stay disconnected from internet for first 21 smoke-free days.

Posted in Getting started 16 May 2019

During this Ramzan(15th may to 5th June)(holy month for Muslims,though not a Muslim) trying to be smoke-free completely for next 21 days. I have started my journey from today to live a smokeless life. I have planned to follow it religiously as Muslims follow their routine during this period. My main reason behind smoking is low confidence,self-doubt, hypothetical pressure and self created negative thoughts over the past 3-4 years. I have been smoking for 6 years and tried few times earlier especially when was with family and felt marvelous in those days. Now I have determined not to start again because my self doubt and health issues grew at severe level. I consulted a lung specialist and he told if continue,I am going to have COPD very soon. Hope after this 21 days I will have a new life as I am sure because I have already experienced this earlier.

    So glad you have made the decision to quit. I spent 9 days in the hospital, 6 of those days in ICU, after major surgery because of smoking. Tomorrow will be the 22nd week anniversary of my last cigarette. I do miss it sometimes, but everyday gets better. I was also diagnosed with COPD and minor emphysema. Both conditions have improved since quitting.
    Good luck to you and to all of us on this journey towards better health.
