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.

Confession: I’ve let my 2 quit smoking apps run on for months at a time, checking out the stats...as an imposter.

Hey Mars, 

Welcome to the team!  I totally did this too!  LOL!!  I can't believe what a great hold this addiction has on us.  It's like the real us wants freedom so bad, but the addict us just does weird stuff!  I'm super glad you're here.  Its a great place to be. :)

I did it too. But it made me think good of the amount of money I was spending.

LOL!  That's a good thought!  Yeah, its amazing how much we're saving.  I never thought about it before, but my family is in a better place financially now that I'm smoke free.  All the blessings...

Anybody having trouble sleeping since you quit smoking?  It is very common to have problems sleeping in the beginning as an ex-smoker.   Check out the sleep music available on U Tube.  It helped keep me together the first awful months.  There is even an 8 hr one that i loved.  I played it every night for 4 months before I no longer need it.
