    21 days ! That's great :) No reason to ever look back :)
    We hear some talk about the 3s, and, from what I have read, and from my experience, first, 3 days / 72 hours, nicotine is out of your system, and your brain is screaming for more. Then it takes around 21 days for your body to fully recover from the addiction. After that, all that is left, is your habit, routine / addiction to the act.. All of this can be hard, or easy, depending on your mindset.. Quitting really can be as easy as one makes it :)

    Hi Jessfreeof. Sending you much deserved congratulations on your 3 week quit. It is a terrific milestone. Stay in the mindset that you are in and you will conquer the battle easily. There maybe a few bad withdrawals here and there but, they, as you know are very short lived. You are doing great and you have this. You have put another dent in the banks of the nicotine suppliers and given that money back to yourself. In addition to giving yourself a more healthy you. Love and Light, and much deserved CONGRATULATIONS!!

    I am sick of smoking and sick of the cost. Have tried so many times but continue to go back
    Really want to do this

    Look I’m sitting at the three week mark still baking my head of coughing up tar flecks and my lungs feel red raw startling to wonder weather it was worth quitting
  • Nana j, Murrumbidgee July 19, 2021 | 18:02
    Can anyone tell me if this is normal I
  • DannyO July 26, 2021 | 9:49

    I've really missed you guys because I liked your writing and stories so much. Been away mates: open heart surgery: aortic valve replacement, triple bypass and pacemaker. I guess all those accumulated years of smoking paid off in damage to my heart. Congratulations to 21 days. It starts with one day and you've gone 21 and that's a huge milestone.

    Way to go!! ^__^ I'm going to start working on it at a slow pace myself and to me it's quite a daunting experience but just gotta keep going!!

    2nd day today. Lockdowns are my trigger. Don't smoke most of the week then hammer them on weekends, always with alcohol.
  • Ozma August 15, 2021 | 13:22

    Its all up from here.
  • ellies, South Western Sydney September 01, 2021 | 13:42
    I am over smoking and looking forward to the other side (smoke free)

    Hi all,
    Day 2 and feel the need to smoke creeping in. Mouth has a metallic wet feel I always get when I cave and go out and buy a pack of smokes. I'm determined to not give in, but i always start with good intentions and then I fail. I've failed soooo many times so early on. Its crazy, I've got to the point where I don't like the taste of cigarettes but find it incredibly hard to quit. Done some gardening but then wanted a smoke as some kind of reward. The mind is a mean weird thing sometimes
  • Chellie, Central Coast September 19, 2021 | 17:42
    Are you still smoke free
  • Moti September 25, 2021 | 20:52
    I am trying. At least with every cig I smoke I think wether I can delay it. But I give in feeling there is much time available for my target date.
