Staying smoke free

Posted in Staying quit 03 Aug 2015

Today I am 204 days smoke free and to think I did this with no patches and no gum ! I thought it would be hard, but it hasnt been as tough as I had anticipated. After 22 years of heavy smoking, I made up my mind that I was done and I was done ! You have to be consistant and be ready to quit. I can honestly say that after 204 days without a cigarette I am ready to go another 204 and so on and so on lol. I traded smoking for eating healthier foods and going to the gym. I have been running and going to the gym almost as long as I have been smoke free and it helps keep me in line.
