Stories & experiences


Not perfect, but pretty darn good!

Posted in Staying quit 27 Sep 2014

It's been quite a while since I posted on this site, so thought I would send a little update.  I am now at 130 days smoke free.  I feel great and seldom crave, except when I am having drinks but in those situations I just take a couple of puffs off my husbands ecig which has no nicotine, just vapour and that seems to do the trick.  It seems if I can just hold it while in a party situation with other smokers, it really does the trick and honestly, I'm holding it more than puffing on it.  After 35 years of smoking and many failed attempts, I really think this has been the key to my success (that and champix!).  I always caved when under the influence of a few drinks - really makes for poor judgement :). I feel confident that I won't smoke again, and I have never been able to say that before.  I know I can never have even one cigarette because I am an addict!

So stay strong everyone, do what you need to do to be successful!   Some would consider my ecig a bit of a cheat, but I dont, it's an aid, actually a prop because there's nothing in it! Bottom line, it works for me so I am thrilled.   Do what works for you and I wish you all the best!
