Absolutely. And how nice it was to get to the office this AM without having had a cigarette.
And to go to bed last night without stinking of smoke.
Focusing on the positives on day 2 :)
Oh my! U are right on it.
no cigg smell going into office, no cigg smell going to bed!
no worries of bumping into someone on the way to work in the morning and start a conversation as I am always worried about my stinky mouth!
damn relatable to me..
Hello, I was reading through the OCTOBER thread and came across your message. I totally identify with your sentiment that giving up smoking is the hardest challenge you have met. Me too, and I have had quite a few quits and this time I am just on two months. I even threw away a 2 1/2 year quit once. You have come to the right place. This forum is so informative and accepting. I wish you the best with quitting and with your health. My daughter has emphysema and is only in her 40's. Smoking is a wicked thing really.
Hello Lynn, I hope and pray for you that you can quit. I was just scrolling through the October thread and saw your message. You sound determined. Stick with the forum.
Totally. No wearing a separate jacket and then obsessively washing hands so you don’t smell!
Well got snowed out of the mountains early. Left home drive 700 miles, did some 40-50 miles hiking up and down the mountains with no chest tightening or feeling short of breath. Get off the mountain and start contemplating the drive home and chest been heavy all afternoon. Thinking now it may be anxiety, but don't know what I have to be anxious about. This started couple weeks before I decided to quit and the reason I quit. But anyway, yeah I up to 11 days, almost done with 12.
12 days quit and hiking 40-50 miles? That’s outstanding. Way to go!
finishing a paltry day 2 :)
Thanks but my brother and I have decided we are getting to old for this. Legs hurt back hurts..lol
2 days means your serious, we can do this.
I chew out my addiction like it's standing right in front of me, outloud as much as possible. Your mind tends to believe what you tell it, whether you believe it at the time or not. Keep reading, posting, & smoke free.
N.O.P.E. not one puff ever
The miles were over 4 days
Hello Debbie This is 48yrs.smokin Well i'm starting in this forum not knowing what and where to do things. Guess I'll start bye saying that I'm on my 9th day of the rest of my life being smoke free. 1st time not smokin in many years. I'm 61 had a health scare from the Doc laying it out on the table. With no bluntness about it told me Keep smokin and I'll see you again in here on short order or I Maybe not cuase you will not see any 1 6 ft. under. Took that with my 3yr, old grandson to get me in the mood. So threw smoking cessation classes at local hospital and Your forums that I found and read alot I am on the road to being smoke free. What to do with this now? I'll ppush some buttons and hope it goes to the right places. I'm not computer frendly and it's the joke that nobuddy lets me near there electronics cause I always mess them up!!!!!!!!!
