Today is 9 Callender Months

Hi Everyone

9 months today and feeling really great it just keeps getting better

Thats 273 days since my last fag

I have saved £1,869.52

By not smoking 6,823 cigarettes.

I have saved 3 Weeks, 2 Days, 16 hours and 35 minutes of my life.

My Quit Date: 17/11/08

To say I am chuffed is an understatement of how I feel right now

I know I've said it before and no doub't will say it again but I smoked for over 50 years so if I can quit anyone can

    I bet you can see the penthouse on the horizon!!!:)

  • Congratulations Marg on 9 Calendar months!!

    Marvellous Achievement.. i'm glad you've put how many cigarettes you haven't smoked, but have you considered what that also means?

    6,823 Cigarettes not smoked.


    Lets presume that one cigarette is 3 inches which you would have smoked each one.

    3 * 6823 = 20469 inches.

    Lets convert that to something else:

    0.32312778123 miles (thats over a third of a mile not smoked!)

    519.9126 meters (or over half a kilometer not smoked)

    51991.26 centimeters

    well an olympic sized swimming pool is what? 50 meters in length.. 519 is more than 10 lengths of this Olympic Sized swimming pool.

    And that is presuming its just a 3 inch cigarette.

    Frightening isn't it?!


    If it took you 2 mins to smoke one, that would be over 227 hours spent smoking 6823 of them. (over 9 full days)

    If it took you 3 mins, thats over 341 hours spent on 6823 (over 14 full days)

    If it took you 5 mins, thats over 568 hours spent on 6823. (over 23 full days)

    Well done you !!!!!!

  • Hi Nog :D
