Quit smoking literally overhauled my life

It’s been 7+ months so far for me. Quitting smoking was one of the biggest life changing decision for me. I didn’t realise how much money, energy and time I was spending just to get that hit of nicotine. In last 7 months even with Covid 19 i was able to pay off 80% of my debt, saved enough to see house mortgage on horizon, switched my job and home (now living independently without any housemate since now i can afford it) and not reaching out to that pack of Viagra.

I know it sounds as dramatic as what they put on cigarette packaging; but it literally changed my life for better. And this feeling of being in control and autonomy I wouldn’t want to give up (retrospectively I switched my nicotine addiction with being in control addiction but i digress :-D)

    Sounds good to me Eli. I can't believe I let them rule me for over 40 years. You are making wonderful changes to your life and will be handsomely rewarded. When you look at this whole picture, you wonder why people have such a hard time letting go of their so called "dear friend". Mindset is everything!
