368 days

Posted in Quit experiences 12 Sep 2019

Hi All, I thought I would log on and say hi and can happily report I am 368 days and going strong. I have achieved so much financially in a year on things I would not be able to afford if I was still smoking 🚬 . Don’t miss it and my only regret is I didn’t stop sooner, but better late than never.

It’s funny when your with smokers how some feel uncomfortable around you, and they will say I’m going to give up, I know how hard it is to stop and I don’t judge. Stay strong don’t let those money hungry time wasters run yr life. 💪🏻🚬😁

    Congrats to SuzyQ and to Maestro on 1 year. That is fantastic. Well done both of you. I too have found that smokers are uncomfortable are around me now. Maybe they think that i will give them a hard time about still smoking. There is no point doing that, as no one will quit until they are ready to do so.

    Thats so awesome Suzie!! Always brings a tear to my eye to see someone kicking the habit for good. Once you have lasted a year, its hard to see how you would ever go back to being a smoker again.

    Congratulations SuzyQ92 and to Maestro40 for both reaching that fantastic milestone of a year! I love your phrase " Money Hungry time wasters"
    Financial blood suckers or lousy leeches would also apply! When a craving comes now you can envision the little begger and his lecherous greedy claws just waiting to grab you.
    Remember that in giving up smoking , you are choosing to redirect your life. Smoking/Nicotine never gave you any thing, but denied you better health and financial stability for many years. I am glad that Maestro hasn't given in, but I do hope that he understand that his terminology may indicate a battle of will. When you choose, there is no conflict because it is a deliberate decision, no debate. Reminders of smoking or urges should be easily and quickly dismissed.

    All quits are different because people are different. I wish you all speedy, easy journeys.

    I remember you and I started the same day!
    I do have urges still, but haven't given in...
