Hi October Ex-Smokers,

I just passed my one year anniversary. Last year at this time I couldn’t even think in terms of weeks or months and definitely not a year!  But the days went by and turned to weeks, then months and finally I have reached a year smoke free. Smoking is just a passing thought now. When I see other people smoking now I feel sorry for them. Smoking truly is a circle of addiction that is only broken when we stop feeding the nicotine monster his “fix”. 

This journey may not be the easiest one you take but it will be the most important one towards a better life. 

I came across this poster online and it really helped me a lot to keep this in mind....,

Welcome Dan and congrats on your decision to get rid of this addiction.  Settle in and read everything you can about this addiction, it will help you tremendously. Post often, stay in touch with all your quit buddies, it keeps you in the right frame of mind. Don't let yourself miss something that will destroy you, rejoice that you are getting free.  Wishing you all the best.

Of course it had nothing to say for itself, because it knows I'm right. ;)

Congratulations! That’s a wonderful accomplishment.

You inspire people like me who are just in the beginning of the journey. Sometimes it does feel like time is moving soo slowly. But as you said,  I’ll never think of smoking as anything but an addiction trap again.

Jupiter58,

I'm doing ok. It's been hard. Sometimes I am amazed that I just might be able to do this. More often I feel horrible and want to just smoke again.  I am still chewing gum alot.  At least it's better than the smoke. My chest has been feeling so much better.  I think what is really helping me not to light up is the memory of when my chest hurt all day one day.  It was so scary.

The other day I was really happy and surprised when i woke up NOT thinking about a cig.  Yay.  One day at a time.
