Over 365, and at 380 days quit

Posted in Hints and tips 19 Jul 2020

It came to the point that without a cigarette, I was sure that I hallucinated this whole no-more stuff. The pleasures of being without a cigarette at all for 380 days are done deal, and it feels like a new rmd.

I keep trying to put in 'whole'; being smokefree anymore makes me feel whole. Now...if I can place healthy activities in my daily routine...this will be a year to remember. Not many of those coming up in the past. But life is beyond that and on course for something that makes me want to sing.

If this can stick, I could be parts of who I want to be without much effort. Some coconut juice with the sprinkle bits in it for cravings seems to be the trick. It is just so wonderful to not be the slave that I once was to the cancer stick.

    Wow rob rmd. I am impressed and so happy for you. Great job on this quest and learning to believe in yourself. You can also better other parts of your life if you are inclined. Unfortunately I couldn't get motivated to exercise more, and whether that was a significant factor in my stroke I don't know, but I put in the time now. While quitting smoking is one area to address, we also need to look at the whole picture. Keep going until you are the best you can be. You are young yet , your whole life ahead of you. You have great potential. Use it. If you could quit smoking, you can do anything you desire.
