One Year Smoke Free

Posted in Quit experiences 10 Jan 2020

In my journey to quit I visualized this moment, celebrating my one year anniversary. It was really hard to make it to this point, when times got tough I had to encourage myself to stay strong in the face of the nicotine urges. I had to remind myself it is never ok to smoke one cigarette, and that social smoking will always lead to addiction. I have always believed that our journey to be free from nicotine rest in the power of our mind, a place where no urge to smoke is ever stronger than our will to say no. Focus on your daily victories and not how hard it is to quit and you will always be victorious.

    Thank you Leeann I am really proud of myself for winning this war against nicotine. Quitting was one of the hardest and one of the most rewarding things that I have ever done, and I continue to truly look forward to a life free from cigarettes.

    Congrats and well done Battle won. You deserve a big pat on the back and a valuable reward for yourself. However, always stay vigilant. This demon is sneaky. Have a friend who quit smoking last year but she was off cigs for 8 years before taking just one puff. Cheers and good luck.
