1 whole month!

Very happy to be here. Smell, taste, fitness, breath, bank balance, breathing....all noticeable improvements. According to the app Ive saved $819, which is just ridiculous when you think about it. I was willingly paying that money to reduce my sense of smell, taste and fitness. Make it difficult to breathe and have stinky breath.

So happy I finally took the plunge and gave it away. Should have done it years ago!

Anyone reading this who is deciding on quiting or has just started I say to you it! I promise you it gets so much better!

    ' 1 month ' Fantastic. Well done mate. The money we wasted is truly shocking. I have saved $4,222 so far. When you get to a thousand, buy yourself a reward. Congrats to you

    I am so happy that the journey went smoothly for you and I think that you are bound to stay on course as a happy non-smoker having accepted that fate. Congratulations on a job well done!

    Well done...awesome job. Yes it is hard to believe that we were slaves to this terrible habit for so long. Also to the newbies...some of us have smoked for more years than we care to count...if we can quit so can you. Stay strong and focused.
