Today is my 180th day and just a few days shy of 6 months! My throat problems still bug me a bit but not as much as before! Once I got a clear diagnosis of no cancer from my ENT I started to feel better although I still have swallowing problems. In these 180 days, I will have walked 1000km soon and apart from my throat problems and cough, I feel great! If I could quit and stay quit, anyone can! It gets easier everytime although I do sometimes miss having that smoke and time to myself. But when I start missing those moments, I think of the health scare I had and think about how dying of cancer or COPD or any other smoking related disease would feel like. I love the fact that I’m not spending any money on those cancer sticks and that I don’t have to keep washing my jackets etc as often because I no longer reak like smoke! Life as a non smoker is MUCH better. To those just starting out, take it one day at a time, it does get easier and easier everyday and before you know it, you too will be celebrating, half a year, a year, 2 years etc of no smoking!
