    Hi V1....welcome to the start of your new journey and a new way of life without smokes,
    All journeys in life start with a step and this is the step you are taking now, then it will be steps then strides and then leaps n bounds.
    Focus on your goals, you can do it,,
    Let go of your past as being a smoker and into the "new you".
    You can do it.

    V1 we all had day 1 and we can all only do 1 day at time, so well done on your decision not to smoke today and if you can do 1 day you can do it again tomorrow.

    Day 1, yes, very scary! In life, if you aren't scared, you aren't having fun. Enjoy the ride and the satisfaction of the choice you have made. For me, day 390 something, not to mention the $8000+ saved from the ashtray. Day 1 is the hardest. Be kind to yourself and I hope you last the distance as it will get easier as long as you never forget day one, let alone hope to re live it...

    Good luck on your first day of quitting smoking. But it can be very hard for the first week or two but it will get easier. And hope you go well.

    Hey V1 , congratulations on you're 1st day of being a nonsmoker, congratulations on making you're very 1st post, it's day 6 for me and the greatest advice I can share with you is when you're having a bad craving jump onto this website and post, read until you're craving has subsided, it distracts you , educates and you have people who have the same interests of kicking this addiction here to support and listen and share with you, well done sweet heart muwa 💋🐾😀

    First day... I remember mine 124 days ago. Just remember quitting smoking is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Get through each moment as it comes and know when you feel weak... It will pass. You can do this! 👍🏻
