4 week anniversary

Posted in Staying quit 05 Oct 2020

G'day all,

I have hit 28 days off the darbs today! Feeling pretty compared to a couple of days ago when I was having a hard time breathing.

How's everyone doing?

Keep strong, team!

    We all have better days to look forward to once we quit smoking. Better breathing and more energy are great ones to start. We smell better right away too, and the savings account starts to grow. In time, you become more adept at filling in the little voids where we might have had a smoke. Getting into automatic routines helps bring back the feeling of normalcy. That's when you realize just how much of a waste of time smoking was. How it controlled you.

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your new health and on your way to experiencing the new freedom. Congratulations and don't forget to keep checking in on us and to grasp the mindset.

    Hi Happiness, you are most definitely right. I'm getting my smell back now and it's amazing. Still a little heavy in the chest after a PT session but not gasping for air this time. I will check in as often as possible to see how everyone is going. I'm enjoying the mantra and sense of community amongst everyone. It's uplifting!
