It only gets better

Posted in Quit experiences 07 Feb 2021

I logged in to the app today to discover that I have been smoke free for 2150 days...the app tells me I have saved 49,500$ but that is way out. I soaked at least 40 a day so on today’s rates that is 100,000$ plus.

That gave me reason to pause and reflect...I have been able to extensively explore more than half of the country with my family...I have not made a late bill payment since quitting. I have not felt that sting of embarrassment or shame of being a smoke( I feeling that intensified over the last 5 years of my smoking journey).

I am lucky, Zyban had an immediate impact on my addiction... it created a hatred for the smell, taste and desire to smoke.

Never give up giving up! Life only gets better.

    Thank you for the insight to quitting smoking and the impact our choices have on our lives. So much money and time has been wasted. We owe ourselves and our families to do what we know can now be done. We can quit smoking and easily so, knowing that there is nothing left to go back to.....and so much more that lies ahead for us to enjoy.

    Congratulations on quitting smoking and choosing Life.
