Smokefree days: 1826 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 45650
Total savings: $41,815.40

I honestly thought I would never be able to quit. Turns out I was wrong!! Normally I'm not happy being wrong but this time I am. I love, love, love being smokefree. I don't crave those nasty sticks anymore and I'm a heck of a lot richer. Richer in time, confidence and money. Those early days are tough but stick with it and one day you'll get to the end of the day and realise you haven't given one single thought to smoking. Then you will be the boss of you rather than the cigarettes ruling your life. We're watching the ABs tonight with a few friends and some bevvies - fingers crossed for an AB win.

    Woohoo! So pleased I checked in this morning. Congratulations to you both. I'm sure there are many on here who will have been encouraged by your help and advice over the years. Sorry the AB's match didn't turn out quite as we all hoped, but at least your quit attempt was a winner. Good to see you.

    Well done both of you. Bet you both feel just great.

    I knew 8th July was your 5 year anniversary as it was my birthday but have been involved going out for lunches, having friends etc until now.

    Huge congratulations and hope you enjoyed your celebrations.

    Just wonder how your littlies are doing.

    Got ours for the day during the school holidays.

    Take care, Bev.

    I had you on my calendar!
    CONGRATULATIONS to you both on a wonderful 5 years being S/F. Our lives are so much richer for making that decision even though at the beginning there were bumpy times.
    So worth it.
    I hope your celebrating and looking forward to messaging on year 6 :) xx
