4 Years smoke Free!

Posted in Staying quit 04 Aug 2022

4 years ago was the last I smoked and it feels good, real good to be smoke free.

Recently I went through a lot of job related stress and I kept reminding myself it would have been a lot worse had I been smoking through it.

Staying quit is hard because I feel I can never let my guard down but it's worth it. To be able to breath fresh air and feel fresh

Good luck to all of you

    Congratulations on your 4 year milestone.

    I think checking in on IcanQuit and remembering NOPE and what you have gone through will stand you in good stead against future temptations. Enjoy your better health, wealth and be proud of your great decision and accomplishment! I refuse to keep looking over my shoulder for something that I should hope will never be there.

    Thanks for your story.
    I have retired from my “ career” as a smoker and know I will never go back. I still smoke but only in dreams. Ocassionally I do feel like a smoke but then I think of my health and the money they cost. It’s just not worth it! 🌈🌼🌸🙂

    Hi Aniruddha.
    It is good to be smoke-free. You have past the so-called finish line 4 years ago! We no longer have to look over our shoulder, nor be bothered to avoid an alcoholic drink anymore.
    We don't smoke.
    We are free.
