4 years smokefree today


Smokefree days: 1,461
Total savings: $14,244

Wow how time flies when you’re having fun aye! I had a reminder on Facebook that today was my breathday so thought I’d come and checkout my stats!
To everyone starting their journey, utilise these blogs as much as you can. This was what made all the difference for me quitting for the last and final time! And just so you know, even after 4 years I still get the odd craving or urge to reach for a cigarette so don’t beat yourself up if you still do too. Happy breathday everyone! Hope you’re all doing well in your journey!

Two years smoke free! Wow how time flies!
so much has happened in that time but it feels like just yesterday that I was still smoking. Even now, I still feel the urge to reach for a cigarette sometimes especially when I'm stressed or drinking so it still is something I have to stay conscious of but its no longer a struggle.

Hope everyone is doing well on their quit journey :)

I haven't checked into here in a long time! Getting close to that one year mark omgggg I never would have thought I would be able to do it! Hope those who quit around the same time as me last year are still going strong and if not that's cool too. All in your own time aye :)

hope everyone is doing well in their journeys right now! I gotta say, even at almost one year quit I still get the urge to pick up a cigarette when I'm around them sometimes or think about how gooood a cigarette would be esp when I'm feeling really stressed! I'm a non smoker now though and I just have to keep reminding myself of that lol

Almost at the 6 month mark! Woop woop!

Anyway, I've been dreaming of and thinking about smoking a lot lately. I feel like I'm craving but I just keep reminding myself that I don't smoke anymore. Lastnight, I dreamt that I stole a cigarette from my mums handbag and hid under their house smoking it lol it felt so good in my dream and when I woke up my first thought (as it used to be) was to go out for a smoke. It didn't last long, but I find it weird that even after this long it still plays a big part in my life.

Hope everyone's quit journeys are going well! :)

When do we become non-smokers

Smokefree days: 114 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 1140
Total savings: $969.00

So I was just wondering, are we always going to be"quitting" or is there a certain point or specific number of days that would qualify us to be called "non-smokers"?
Whenever I'm offered a cigarette now I always say, "I dont smoke ANYMORE" but do I have to let ppl know I used to smoke or can I just say no thanks and leave it at that?

I kinda don't feel like I am truely a "non smoker" yet because I still get cravings and I still think about ways I might be able to sneak a cigarette in without anyone knowing! Lol

Anyway, I hope everyone had a fabulous xmas and best wishes for the new year! :) :) :)

perfume didnt fool anyone but myself

One thing I've really noticed since quitting is how smelly my smoker friends are! (no offense to them lol) No amount of expensive perfume can mask that distinct smell and I know I was guilty of trying to do that after nearly every cigarette during the day.
Not only do I really love the smell of my hair now I noticed my perfumes arent running out so fast so thats an extra plus for the bank balance also! :)
Today I felt like I was dying for a cigarette ....until my friend sparked up and I caught a wiff of it lol
