Just short of 1000 days smoke free and a saving of $19,000! It is well and truly all behind me now. I no longer miss it at all. And what surprises me is that whenever we are out I see very few people smoking. I have just turned 60 and truly believe if I still smoked I would have been on oxygen. My breathing is so much more manageable. I am still using ventolin, when I need it, and have preventative medication (seretide). All of which helps. The past few years have been challenging also. My mum passed away, my daughter was diagnosed with MS, my husband had major surgery and was in ICU and last year my younger brother died of cancer. I smoked for 38 years non stop. This community helped me immensely. I would come here every time I felt like a smoke and before you knew it......the craving subsided. The seed is planted and your journey began when you joined this group. Keep at it and it will happen as it did for me.
