118 days today!

Posted in Quit experiences 11 Mar 2014

Hi everyone. I wish everyone the best on your non smoking journey. I am 118 days smoke free today and in a few days it will be 4 months! I am riding the bike faster and further these days around 20km in about 50 minutes and I don't have to stop for a rest like I used to when I 1st started riding.  Energy levels are up and I can breathe better than i have in years. I can walk up steep hills faster without feeling like I am gonna die! I finished the Champix about 8? weeks ago and haven't looked back. I have no desire what so ever to smoke. I can't stand the smell of them any more. I just seem to have become super sensitive to the smell. Stay strong and if I can do it you defintely can!

    Thanks for your photo. I will buy a packet of balloons today. I am going to huffinpuffinstuff them up. I have noticed that my breathing has become very shallow lately. It is a bit of a concern. Thanks, I will reach for a balloon instead of a smoke.
