I had one cigarette yesterday. It was the last in my packet. I even went to the shop for a few things and didn't buy a new pack!
So today is my first day smoke free .... for now. I am pretty confident I can last the day. When I see how easy it is on Champix to be able to be fine with this and not feel anxious about what I'll do with no smokes, I can do it again tomorrow, and the day after and the day after that ..... watch this space....
Just over 10 weeks Smokefree now and boy has it been a big roller coaster ride but still remaking it ODAAT!
Just realised I never got around to thanking all the regulars who comment with their helpful advice and all the others that pop up here and there...I honestly feel like without all the suggestions and feedback as well as having this platform to vent as well as hold myself accountable to e wry one that I would not be where I am now!
People all around me point out how much healthier I’m looking and my skin looks great as well as my teeth looking so much cleaner. I have energy and don’t cough all the time...I’ve not been sick this year which is a first and of course the amount of money saved that I can put towards my kids is incredible.
So thank you to everyone for your help and to everyone starting on their journeys -you can do it just take it a day at a time and don’t put too much pressure on yourselves...I’ve lost counts of my attempts over the last few years and it does take time to get that “sticky quit”!
Had to have a tooth pulled last night, not the most fun I have had after work. But seeing the damage to my teeth that smoking has caused is really helping me not want to go buy a packet. Still taking my Champix day and night and I had my last smoke this morning, had fully intended on getting a pack to continue weaning off while I take champix, but I dont seem bothered about getting a pack or not.
Smokefree days: 2,727
Total savings: $44,286
Just liked my numbers today.
Nauseating to think of all those sticks I smoked.
To all of your starting your journey just NOPE and ODAAT and soon the days will turn to weeks then months. It is so worth the hard work at the beginning
I'm 36 hours smokefree have had a few struggles today but managed to hang in there keep thinking I'll buy some then have remind myself why I'm doing this for my health bank balance and for my 4 children who hate it wen I smoke so bring on day 2
I'm struggling too stay smoke free it's been just under 24 hours since I had my last smoke I have vapes but there making me feel sickly I'm tempted to go back too smoking but I also dont want too. I have to remember I'm doing this for my daughter
