Posted in Quit experiences 21 Jan 2015

It's been 1,038 days since I cold turkey quit after 55 years chain smoking non filtered American cigarettes. I just could not afford to smoke so I stopped - I wasn't sure that I could but the miser in me came to the fore and the rest is history.

Mind you I've been tempted but seeing the price rises of the last three years I've steeled myself to the fact that I'm an ex smoker. I must admit that my weight has gone up about 10 kgs but I figure the Zooper Doopers (ice blocks) can't be as bad as the cigarettes were.

So I guess what I am saying is if I can quit you surely can

    That's great news!! Imagine all the things you may have had to go without because of buying cigarettes instead! 1,038 days is a heck of a long time! You should be so proud of yourself!! And yes, last time I checked zooper doopers didn't have arsenic or carbon monoxide in them ;) lol
