Sh*t! has it really been so long?

Errm i was just cleaning out my bookmarks on my computer and i realized that i hadn't been here for a while. I quit on the 2nd of November and have had no slip ups cold turkey. I do think about smoking quite often, but more as "hmm i wonder what they taste like" kinda way. I'm glad i quit and i defo feel the benefits. Id say the only drawback is that i do drink more but, i cant put that solely on the fact i quit fags; even if i do its not at binge drinking levels. I'm not typing this to show off, or even ask for a pat on the back, but more as a way of showing people that their is a point you reach when smoking doesnt actually mean anything to you anymore. This is coming from someone who would pick up used butts on the floor, roll up the black tobacco and smoke it! :eek: That was disgusting i know but if i was broke i still needed my fix. Its a horrible addiction - worse than any illegal drug. What im trying to say is stick in there cus their is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Oh by the way, happy non smoking day!

    Thanks a lot for this post, it's really good to know there will be a day, not too far in the future, when smoking will mean nothing. In the past, I too have been known to create a roll-up out of butts (from an ashtray, not from the floor, I hasten to add), so I guess there's hope for me yet.

    And even though you didn't really want one, have a pat on the back anyway, and WELL DONE on your quit.

    Onward and upwards,

    I have been quit for 2 Months, 1 Week, 1 Day, 3 hours and 52 minutes (68 days). I have saved £359.80 by not smoking 1,363 cigarettes. I have saved 4 Days, 17 hours and 35 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 04/01/2008 11:45

  • Well done and you do deserve a pat on the back, everyone that quits deserves one.

    Its a battle and a fight at times but each day that goes by gets easier and easier till you almost forget your trying to quit and realise you have quit!
