ooh 1 month!

Hey people. for those that remember me from about a month ago well im back. I had to go with out the internet for a month for technical reasons! but im still here and still quit :D Im on 1 month and 11 days. feeling good still not used to not smoking but hey i smoked for a long time, im guessing its going to take a long time to get used to not smoking.

Edit:

I do find myself in a strange situation though. I quit purely for financial reasons, that was the only reason really. But that has been sorted out for the forseeable future. So i find myself quit with my reason taken away yet I don't pick up a smoke I guess deep down I really do want to stop smoking no matter what my reasons.

  • Good for you, you stayed stopped even when you didn't have your forum support. keep going now you are here we will help you get to where you want to be. Lots of people stop for one reason but stay stopped for another, the other being life.

    Hello - and well done on you 1 month and 11 days - and without forum support! Cor - thats good going.

    I know what your mean about your reasons. I gave up because I shattered my shoulder and the doc said that I needed to not smoke for 3 months for it to heal and repair itself. If I did smoke it may not heal at all.

    Early on in my quit I just thought after 3 months I can smoke again. But then all my thoughts changed - I went from "needing" to give up to "wanting" to give up and was determined to continue which thankfully I have.

    You seem to have a good idea of what you want. And think - if finance was you're original reason you're going to be quids in if your situation has improved.

  • Well done Karas that's great keep it going Big Hug

  • Well done keep up the good good work.

  • Well Done Karas!!!

    Thats fabulous going!

    You should be ultra proud!

    Boing boing boing!!! :D

  • I'm very sure that other reasons to be free from the nicotine addiction will present themself to you in time, you may not totally realise it now, but you will see many positive reasons to be quit as time goes by, and all you have to do is stick with this game-plan.

    Even if your initial reason is gone, set yourself a new goal on the time-line anyway and aim for that... 4 months is a good starter and then take it from there once thats reached.

    All i know is that had i have had the knowledge 15 years ago that the one cigarette i was smoking then would lead to over £32000 of total spending across that 15 year gap i would have probably thought long and hard before lighting that first one.

  • I’m really glad that you’ve quit

    Cause in the past you’ve smoked some sh**

    Smelly Hair Hands and Breath

    Shorter Life but longer Death

    Up the hills you’ve got no puff

    Smokers cough that makes you rough

    So pass each day without the weed

    Cause only then will you succeed

    So Bravo to all that now don’t smoke

    Cause early Death is sure no Joke

  • congratulations on 1 month karas. Heres to the next one :D

  • Hi Karas

    A big Congratulations!! One month is fantastic!

    I quit becasue I felt I had smoked so long that any more and it would kill me. I really was frightened.

    However, having saved a lot of money already in just this first month, I find that very motivating to keep going!

    I make a big deal about spending that money every week, and always on something I would have likely gone without when I had to worry about paying for smokes!

    All the best!
