Well done!!  You must be starting to feel this win!  You are past the worst of it, now you must guard your quit from all temptations.  DO NOT GIVE IN - ever again.  Remember - not one puff ever is a lifestyle choice for a lifetime. 

Well Done!!

The feeling of being a smoker is finally fading, but NOPE rule is with us to stay!

I am doing good and still happy to be a non-smoker!  It has gotten easier and cravings are fewer between, but when they come, we must remain diligent and strong. So good to hear from you and hope you are doing great!

Hi March-21 quitters. Checking in on my half year mark and probably similar of yours.

Reflecting on the journey so far I can share that the best benefit for me is seeing the world clearly, without fog, feeling the emotions to the fullest, no more cheating with nico-buddy. I got back not only my health, but my real life, accepting all that comes with it.

Leaving this here to remind myself that this is a great place to be. It’s not the end, but it’s so much better already.

Sending positive vibes to everyone who needs it sparkles

Congratulations to you on 6 months!!!  I am still going strong as well…about to hit the 200 day mark. I am so darn proud of myself and even happier to be living a healthier life overall. It’s amazing how much better physically and mentally I feel…freer and more self-confident. Cravings are rare now, but I do still have some faint ones here and there, but they are easy to dismiss with all of the benefits I feel and recognize. 
 

Besides that, my life has been more stressful then ever…my middle son left for college and is causing my anxiety to go through the roof with some of the choices he’s making (and I can’t seem to control or stop) and my 37 year old brother was recently diagnosed with heart failure with a life expectancy of likely under a year without a transplant. Talk about stress…and still I know that smoking is not my friend and would not change any part of those situations. 
 

stay strong all of my non-smoking friends and continue to make good choices one day at a time.

Hi Tanya, sorry to hear about your stress. How are things with your middle son in college? I think it’s beneficial for you and him when you don’t smoke. This is part of learning to be smoke-free and you passed tough exam. 
So unfair and sad about your brother,.. I hope he can get the transplant asap! Hugs,
