Two weeks update new stages

avatar-icon

15 days smoke free update I kind of cant believe it's been two weeks already part of me feels it's gone fast or maybe that's just because everything seems to be so hectic at the moment and part of me feels it's been the longest two weeks ever. My smoking cravings are starting to lessen but I find I'm now craving food I know it's just a phase but it still sucks😥. Biggest problem I seem to have now is a lack of energy I dont know if this is a part of the withdrawal or something else but I will keep at it and hopefully it passes
Kia kaha everyone

Stats Update 111 days smokefree

avatar-icon

Smokefree days: 111
Total savings: $1,902

Hope everyone is doing ok? I'm still chugging along, I've survived my first road trip as a non smoker (not the easiest with a 1 year old who thought screaming for almost 2 hours was ok) but we got there. Bit crook with a cold, but its amazing how normally I would try not to cough cause of the burn, now that I don't smoke it doesn't hurt.

Gratitude

avatar-icon

Just want to say a huge thank you to those that have been supporting me.

Had a tough time last week but rode it out and am so much stronger for it.

I know there will be challenges in the future but it will be a smoke free future and that is very exciting and liberating to know that I won’t be in servitude to a terrible substance.

You guys who have been there and done it yet still come back on here to encourage those of us at the beginning of our journeys are incredibly motivational and a true inspiration.

If any of you are ever in the beautiful Hawke’s Bay then please let me buy you a drink!!

Thank you again.

Made the decision to be smoke free in the near future, looking at cutting down then eventually quitting fully.

Day 1623

avatar-icon

Gidday folks, just been reading some of the latest posts, some people are struggling, I guess no one said it was going to be easy. I really hope you guys stay the course and see it through, it's a great feeling not being dependent on the ciggies.

I haven't been on here for a while, I've said it in previous posts, I cannot believe I once was a smoker. But it's great to come on here once in a while and try and encourage the newbies. I am well on my way, it's been over 4 years now since I smoked my last ciggie. I remember it like it was yesterday, especially the next day when I drove past my dairy, then the gas station knowing I had no more ciggies, that was the hardest thing I had to do, drive past those places I would stop off first before heading off to work to grab a pack of Marlboros, coffee and a muffin if I had the munchies or a Big Ben pie....yep, breakfast of champions.

For me, quitting smoking was trying to win the little battles every day, once you win those little battles, you reset and repeat the next day, before you know a week has passed, then a month, then a few months, then you actually forget about smoking all together. Well that's what helped me and I know everyone is built differently so whatever worked for me won't necessarily work for everyone. But I suggest you find that one thing that will motivate you and stick with it and remember it the next time that craving rears it's ugly head. For me it was my wife and kids, they were all the motivation I needed, they still are.

Remember, ODAAT and NOPE! C'mon guys, you can do this!!! I'll try and keep coming back on here to see peoples journeys and try and encourage if I can even just one person.

Finding it so tough

After 1 month 17 Days 12 Hours things have got real tough. I’ve nearly caved twice in two days.

It’s like sometimes I want to throw it all away! Having the in-laws staying doesn’t help!!!!!

After 60 days smokefree slip up

avatar-icon

I had been 60 days smoke free, and then last night I was drinking at a party but it wasn't till I got home, that I lit up, the first couple of puffs were amazing and then I wanted to vomit.
So is it back to day one ?
