Five months shy of five years!

Hi Everyone! I wanted to touch base to let you know that I’m still 100% quit. I’m only 5 months away from 5 years. For those who are new to quitting, it does get easier. The day is coming very soon for you that you will only think about smoking once every few months (if then). It took a while for me to get my life back on track after quitting but even when chronic illness, I managed to get a job (in the middle of a pandemic at that!). If I can be a help to anyone - or if I can answer any questions, please leave me a note here! All the best!

    Hey Wendy :)
    Good to hear from you. It's been a while.
    I agree,, We are no longer smokers, or addicts :)
    I do look forward to my, after dinner, bourbon, every day ??
    Should I be worried ? LOL

    Great hearing from you Wendy. It is important to confirm that these "cravings" or thoughts are seldom and far between. We are not bothered by things in our past. Yes we DO remain addicts. There are social drinkers, but have you ever heard of s social smoker? The reaction to re introducing nicotine is not worth the risk. Even in the right mindset, I would not tempt fate. Life as a on smoker is too good!
    I would like new people to embrace the journey rather than fear it. It truly makes all the difference.

    Change you mind and change your future!

    Wendy has stated, as do I, we WERE addicts. We do NOT have to remain addicts. I WAS addicted to smoking, and yes, nicotine, but that's history now.
