Hi guys, so proud and happy to announce I have achieved 1 year smoke free life.. It's hard to believe, that I was able to manage to stay smoke free even all circumstances called life.. But I did it and I do not regret anything, I’m just happy and I learnt a lot during this way.. Learnt about myself, how to live peacefully, easy and recognise just important things in my life and focus on them.. I promise to myself to share how I did 1 year, what helped me on the beginnings and during whole way.. Maybe someone would find it useful..
Prior I have quitted, I started write a 1. daily diary and count from -8 days to quit date to be able 2. read Allen Carrs – Easy way how to quit smoking book.. The diary was about how was the day, about my feelings and thoughts.. I have started also brush my teeth everyday twice, eat fruits and vegetables, do not eat sweets, do not spent time on mobile webs about celebrities, started exercising, learn English by read English webs and 3. do everyday tracker of them by putting score of each item.. 4. I downloaded 2 apps to see my progress (EasyQuit stop smoking & Smoke free) , 5. I didn’t tell anybody that I going to quit smoking.. I have postponed quit for 1 day and on second day of quit I started smoking again.. 6. But I didn’t allow to myself smoke my favorite ciggies, but those one of my mother in law what I do not like.. And started to search for some quit smoking buddy, who will be mine support and I would be his.. 7. And I found this site ICANQUIT and started reading stories, the strongest one was from STEAVE01 – it was for me wau effect, he has done it and he had had it much more worse circumstances as I had.. So the second day of smoking was my last day of smoking, I was ready to start once again.. Important note, I didn’t stop write daily diary and everyday tracker.. First week was quite OK, the second week was the worst, others like on rollercoaster, day 50 was day I understood and feel I won and it was going to be much easier, I stopped write daily diary, after 100 days I got days when I didn’t thing about smoking and now at 365 days, I still hardly can believe that I have done it.. I beat dependence on nicotine and on smoking as habit.. I will never return to smoking, even I can, but I don’t want never ever..
I do not live life as I thought I will when I will stop smoking, but I’m happy and I enjoy all benefits of it.. What is the more important, I do not regret and missing anything.. I can live my life as I want..
Thank you all in this community ICANQUIT, every story, comment was helpful during my way.. Without you, I won’t be able to achieve it..
And remember, matik_one is in the one year club from now on, forever.. 😊
