    Great going Gemma. Like myself, I had no choice, had ran out of excuses.

    I PuffNoMore

    Puffnomore yes enough is enough with the ciggeraties
    I did have a struggle today with it
    But I have come this far now I will not give in
    Got to stay strong and focus on the final pic
    Which is a non smoker

    yes Gemma, There can be short-lived struggles at certain times, like after a nice meal. Or after a task completed, with celebrations or commiseration's. But. Committed Quitter's have to rise above all of it everyday. NO MATTER what happens. It gets to become the new HABIT to not to smoke.
    It does get easier each and every week. Especially when we keep $185.50 every week in the BANK!!!! $$$$$$$$$$$

    Puffnomore tell me about it
    I've saved almost 500 dollars already it's great
    And I smell must better than i did before.
    I feel good thay my health is started to get better from not smoking in a sense my health that way is improving
    No whizzing anymore orr my lungs don't feel so tight anymore
    It's good to be able to get a full deep breath of fresh air in again
  • PuffNoMore, Southern NSW July 10, 2020 | 22:05
    Yeah, I feel good when I can talk and converse with colleagues, customers or any people in-general without the worry or embarrassment with them smelling the smoke on my clothes or my old smelly cigarette breathe. Its win-win in every-sense,. Does that make sense?


    Even a death sentence!
  • Gemma23 July 10, 2020 | 22:17
    Yea totally makes sense
    I work in a supermarket and it's really great to no I don't smell of old ciggeraties
    I no I smell fresh.
    But yet I smell other smokers and I think
    O is that what I used to smell like
    It wasn't and isn't nice smell
    Not very attractive.
    As we no smoking does nothing for us anyway
    My friend was trying to stop smoking and she caved after day 6
    I thought that was me along time ago always give in
    But not this time
    I finally do realise it done nothing for me to keep smoking but making my health go down hill very fast.
    And now well I do feel much better and proud to say I have almost done a month without smoking. 🙂🙂

    That is quite an accomplishment Gemma. We enjoyed meals and events without needing a smoke way back when. We didn't plan to be smokers, we became addicted. We couldn't quit, so we presumed we enjoyed it. We really only enjoyed having the incessant need for nicotine relieved once having taken a puff. Unfortunately, it is a vicious, unending cycle. Finding the determination and the desire to put an end to it will prevail with basic understanding. Put the lies to bed and finally be free. Keep up the positive thinking.

    You are doing great Gemma, and these posts testify to the strength of coming onto the forum again and again. Congratulations NOPE (not one puff ever)
  • Gemma23 July 11, 2020 | 18:16
    Yes this is a great place to find new people who are going through the same thing of giving up smoking
    It is good to no that the people here are trying to do the same thing as me
    Not one puff ever.
    I do intend to keep going strong
    Not giving in now that I have come this far.
    It feels very strange not to be smoking
    I still have that feeling of ( well what do i do now?)
    When I have that thought I come on this site and read peoples storys
    It definetly distracts the mind. 💪💪
  • PuffNoMore, Southern NSW July 11, 2020 | 19:20
    That's right Gemma. Occasionally, the feeling of "(well what do I do now" ) pops in ones thought processes, and that's fine, as long as you dont en-act it out with a real cigarette! At one month I think its normal to be at the cross-road. Shrugg it off your mind asap. And I do apologise if this comment has reminded you of feeling strange not to be smoking.
    Still have to practice NOPE everyday, no matter what and we'll celebrate your 2 month's and my half year!!!
  • Gemma23 July 11, 2020 | 19:32
    Puffnomore well done half a year is great 💪💪
    I am looking getting that far.
    I always practice nope every so far day
    And I check in here on some stories and remind myself why I quit.
    I will not be giving in now no way them ciggeraties do nothing for us and yes it is all a mental game we can take control of.
