Stats Update 1627 days smokefree


Smokefree days: 1,627
Total savings: $60,524

$60k. Thats a nice car that I havent smoked over the last 1627 days! And the good thing (and what others should take comfort from) is that I hardly evr think about smoking now, and when I do, it is only with pitty when I see someone smoking, not envy. I really couldnt imagine ever sucking that crap into my throat.

Keep going everyone - it is so worth it.

April Fools Day equals my third breathday

Smokefree days: 1096 days
Cigars NOT smoked: 6576
Total savings: $41,100.00

Three years ago I made a decision that was not an April Fools Joke. I gave up smoking for the last time. I had tried any times before, but this was my sticky quit. I opened up the door to my new life and took a big hopeful step in. Since then, I haven't looked back. Life is better not smoking. It can be done - if I can, you can. Keep going, life becomes normal with the fags. I hardly think of it anymore, and could never think of myself smoking. It was one of the hardest things to do at the start, but now it is done, the sacrifice seems so small, and benefits so substantial.

Keep fighting the good fight.

Clicked over $40k in savings. That is pretty insane! In actual fact it would be more the. That as the prices have gone up in price a few times since then.

That said, money is not the main motivation for me on this journey. The life benefits generally are more than sufficient for me.

Keep up the good work team.

Stats Update 1000 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 1000 days
Cigars NOT smoked: 6000
Total savings: $37,500.00

Look here then. That's just amazing. One thousand days ago I reclaimed my life, restarted my journey and took control. Man it was hard. I struggled quite a bit, and failed a few times previous to this attempt as well. However, by sticking with it, this has stuck with me, Now, one thousand days on, the thought of me smoking is as foreign to me as the thought of my flying to the moon.

What was the difference? You have to want it bad enough. Keep focused and remain positive. But more than anything else, you have to remember that all you need to do is not have that first puff. If you never have that first puff, it is really easy not to smoke.

Keep going quitters. The support on here helps a lot.
