96 days cold turkey in lockdown

Posted in Quit experiences 19 Jun 2020

I quit cold turkey 98 days ago, due to the coronavirus pandemic, I knew my lungs wouldn’t be great after smoking almost a pack a day for the last 35 years, and I was really frightened, of dying if I caught it. The third week was the worst for cravings but been in lockdown has made it so much easier. I very rarely even think about smoking now and even if I see someone smoking it does not bother me at all. It’s still early days though so I am still on my guard

    You're doing great Tracy. Stay on guard and continue sticking close by this forum. I really do believe that it helps to reinforce the quit. Even I learn new things. Believing in yourself is foremost.
