1000 Glorious Smoke - Free Days and Stories to Share

Posted in Quit experiences 03 Aug 2021

It was Easy. The Mindset makes it possible.

I never thought I could quit, stumbled into in actually. Once believing that I could quit like millions of others, I did.

I think forums like this are invaluable, yet many don't need them. I needed to believe and so i did.

I found others who also quit with a mindset that they swear helped.

Allan Carr is the the free e-book and make quitting easy.

Today I went through my many stories and chose this one:


The other day I was reminded of a dear lady who thought that she was weak and pathetic.

She adopted the mindset and quit her patches with no withdrawal. Even nicotine withdrawal does not have to be hard. That was my hardest 3 days and none afterwards. People call it cold-turkey, I called it smart turkey because of the mindset, and Pisces called her quit COLD CHICKEN. Priceless. A good read with humour. I hope you enjoy it

You can change how you see smoking . See the picture of the evil nicoman, and look beyond to see what he doesn't want you to see........intriguing.

Once we have opened our eyes and hearts to the truth, we have no need to go back. Our happy futures await us.

Celebrate with me, read and learn. Be a winner and share your glory with us.

    Thank you Red. So do you and so many others here. I only wish that everyone could quit smoking as smoothly as we did. I will keep trying to help in freeing more from the terrible vice. We know that we can stop smoking easily when we CHOOSE to.

    Congratulations!! I stopped by to share my 3 years quit today but instead I will enjoy your achievement along with mine.

    Oh-Yeah, that's right! I done it tough.
    I honour the smoker who needed to stop smoking- not necessarily wanted to.
    LMfhO. haha.
    I might have tongue in cheek (above) and I should have reached 1000th before you sister, although, I did cave-in, to a 'void', not just once.
    I'm 456 days behind and that will never change from this end.
    Happy Celebrations.

    An unplanned quit and wonderful memories of your vacation with your son. It's funny what causes us to just one day make the most wonderful changes in our lives. I am honoured to share this special day with you .
    Last post indicated that you were well and happy, and in fine shape. Enjoy the wonderful life that you have chosen for yourself. We deserve it.

    Why not post your story and help others on their journey. It will be a wonderful read.
