3 years ago today I chose to quit COLD TURKEY and that was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. It was NOT easy and even these days I sometimes feel like a smoke BUT I know I can never go backwards. Believe in yourselves you can do it!

Just the Start

avatar-icon

It is my 4th day & I am enjoying being ‘smoke free.’ I understand the long journey ahead isn’t going to be pleasant or easy but I will visualise my outcome for the end (thank you Isaac) & the financial & health benefits I, myself, and family would have accomplished. The money I used for smokes is going towards a family trip at the end of this year & every 6 months thereafter - something I should have done long ago

Day 2019

Hey guys, been a while since I've been on here. Hope everyone is doing well in their quit journey's. I am still going strong and smoke free. In fact I don't think about smoking at all. Such a great feeling.

I have just popped in to check on everyone.

For those who are just starting on your quit journey, stay strong, it'll get worse before it gets better but you can do it, I was what you would call a 'chain smoker' and I woke up one day and decided enough was enough, I went cold turkey and here I am nearly 6 years later. I feel great now but I know how tough it was to quit.

Remember, one day at a time and not one puff ever.

Nine months and all is well. No cravings, a little weight gain, taste excellent and no more nicotine smell in the house. Brilliant.
If I can do it so can you, I was a heavy smoker of 62 years.

Starting out

So today I decided I am going to quit smoking... starting tomorrow! I am financially not in a place where I can afford to be smoking and have been increasing my running, so why not help my body out and quit! Any advice and tips would be much appreciated :)

Day 56 and I didnt have a smoke with my friends

avatar-icon

So after being very nervous about catching up with my friends, we had a few drinks at home and... I passed!

Every time my friends and husband would all go outside, I would stay inside and clean to keep my mind occupied. Phew!!! That was a really hard test, but I am so glad I overcame it. I know there will be more trials, but so far so good.
