How are you doing, Michaela ?  Thinking about you, Hope you are well.

Hi, Brenda. I was thinking about you also. 

Yesterday I  tried to stop nicorette gum, but I think I did it suddenly and was not good. I will try again in another manner. 

I can say I am good with no desire to smoke. 

One month 5 days smoke free

You’ve got this!   Keep looking forward. You do not want to start all over again on day one. That is the worst day by far.  I know you still feel like somebody has taken over your mind,body and soul but it is just your receptors screaming for nicotine.  They will shut down but it will take time.  Breathe and distract.  

All the best.  

Smoke free 19 months.  It is true peace and freedom.

So true. This is what I keep telling my self over and over. One day on this group we will talk about other things than cravings. I am looking forward to that day. Peace is all I want. And I can tell you that there are days I am already happy with my self, happy that I breath better and I am healthy.

Proud that I am smoke free.

Alright, alright, alright. Someone else also got an app. Pretty encouraging for me. Especially the money saved and life regained. It's going to add up quick. Brag about it to your family and friends that support you. That helps too. I'm going on 23d, 8h, and 39 min. Says I saved $221.93 but I know it's more than that. Keep it up. Kick that cigs butt.

Today is hard. I am off nicorette gum and I feel  out of my body.  I slept hours and hours. I am afraid of what will be in the future, what if I will fail as I did last time. Lots of worries!

8 hours  free of nicorette gum.

one month and one week smoke free.

I am doing good.  Seems each week that goes by I feel a little more comfortable with myself.  I have only occasional thoughts of smoking each day, but they are quickly gone. I really think my change in attitude has made a huge difference in this quit.  Still a work in progress, but I am enjoying the journey.  Today I passed over 100 miles on my bike odometer, unbelievable !  I have not smoked 1838 cigs,  I am 1 month 2weeks plus free and saved $367.63.  When did I ever have the time to smoke all those and where did I get the money ?  confused  Anyway, trying to keep it positive.  How about you, how are you doing ?
