Day 28

Yep hit day 28 today also be 50 tomorrow so I kept my promise that would give up by 50.

Feeling kinda good a lot happier now that I know I am nor a smoker anymore.

Even though i enjoyed the pleasure of smoking or nicotine gave me I was never happy being a smoking feels a bit like losing a close friend but time will heal I guess.

Still get about one or two craves a day on some days some quite strong use counting down and deep breaths to get over them

I have not spent £168.00 from not smoking 20 pack a day drinking also gone down just at weekend's now.

I feel I can breath a lot deeper and walkup steep hills a lot easier not sure about the skin thing guess that's one for the gals not easy to see in dim light of winter.

Just did a quick calc if one smokes 20 a day that is about a half mile of cigs a year.

I guess my journey has only just started.

What a fool I have been.

Hope everyone still feeling strong

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone.

Think I might need a bit of blade runner tech to get another 50 out of this abused pile of old bones giving up smoking is a good start I guess.

Stay strong everyone.
