100..or 101 Days! Wowzah!!!

I posted this in the 3 mont room - going mental!!!

Hi all

I think I'm on 101 days (it was 14 weeks Monday just gone) - obviously giving up smoking has affected my maths!! Couldn't post yesterday was too busy.

I seriously cannot believe I've reached this point - 100 (or 101!!) days without a cig! Brilliant!!! And it does seem to be getting a lot easier and I'm now going for quite long stretches without even thinking about them. Athough I am not going to become complacent.

And today London Underground decided to have one of its crappier days - so I walked through 2 of our lovely parks this morning. It was a beautiful morning - I was listening to some funky choons on my ipod - and I just breathed! No coughing...no wheezing...no crackling. Just big breaths of clean fresh air. Must say it felt tremendous.

Again - thanks to all on here for your support and for sharing your experiences.

And to others who may be facing difficulties with their quit - stick at it. I never thought I'd get to this point - or that it may be viewed as "getting easier". But as someone who's now here - it does!

  • All

    Thank you so much for your replies. Its people like you that have kept me going.

    MAH - never thought I'd say it - but yeah the changes are great now.

    Jase - Ha! Cheers for that. Think all the oxygen is adling my brain.

    OK its Friday - looking for some delicious for lunch - then am off out for big pints tonight - and I love the fact I can do that without worrying about cigs.

    Hope you all have a good one!!

  • Congratulations on reaching, and passing, what will be the first of many century milestones.

    Reaching 100 days quit was a big moment for me, and I've seen many others say the same. When the day count is into 3 figures it seems to add authenticity to the quit somehow. Well, it did for me!

    Well done to you, and keep on keeping on.
