800 days and counting

Posted in Quit experiences 07 Jun 2019

800 days and counting. Feels great: 1) no more morning cough, 2) no more stink, 3) no paranoia of running out of cigarettes 4) no more wasting money on something that was slowly killing me.

Smoking was my personal prison and I am out and finally free.

Good luck to everyone in your own journey to freedom.

    Hi Safe2017. There is a nice ring to that number. Just imagine how good 888 will be. Such a lucky number. We know this quit thing is not based on luck. So much more. Congratulations to you. So good to see another long time determined success story.

    Had a dream last night that i’ve decided that one cigarette a day won’t constitute an addiction. Woke up felling guilty but glad it was only a dream. Be vigilant everyone. Good luck.

    I liked the analogy of the addiction being like your own personal prison. I can close my eyes and envision it.... the bars, the stripes, the longing for freedom....

    Hi safe2017. 888 is my favorite number. I am really happy for you and cant wait to get there myself. Only at 160 days, so i have a way to go, but i will.. Congrats to you 👍🤗

    Hi Nuts, enjoy each day smoke free and count our blessings that we were able to break free. 80 more days to go to 888 for me. The only problem with reaching these wonderful milestones is that we aren’t getting any younger. Other than that it’s great. LOL.

    Thank you for sharing! I’m almost on month 10! You inspired me to continue to stay strong. Life does get better smoke free. Those little nicotine devils will always pop up “just a few puffs.. it won’t hurt you”. I don’t think they will ever go away. I just keep on praying them away and it gets easier Day by day. Keep up the great work!
