Just had a thought about how long it had been since I quit so took a look on my quit counter. In 5 days it will be 6 months! Thought I better post it now before I forget.
Can honestly say I almost never want to smoke anymore and delight in doing so many things without the worry of getting in that smoke!
I treated myself to an across country flight (no problem now going 6 hours with no smoke!!) and had a wonderful time.
It is winter now and it is great having all the windows shut and the fire warming the house. So different from when I went to smoke in the very cold back room with the window open!
My skin has really improved, colour is good and for the first time in 45 years I do not have acne...it had been those nasty smokes the whole time!!
I have treated myself to an exercise bike and a cross trainer. I work out 1 hour most days, and I also go to a boot camp fitness class (will start again as soon as it gets a bit warmer)! It is fun to feel good and want to get up and get going!
Did I mention the money I have saved, 2 packs a day times 6 months..yep that is a lot of money I now have for other things! Shocking I was spending all that money on killing myself!
So to sum up how things are today, 6 months into being a person who does not smoke....... I feel totally happy!
I'll check back at 1 year!
