I never thought I would be celebrating 6 months quit but here I am, I can now walk up stairs and hills without my heart trying to jump out my chest as I try to catch my breath. I walk for at least 30 minutes every day,sometimes more,still drink lots of water and gererally I feel better than I have in a long time and I have never had the cravings to smoke for about at least 3 months.
Sounds like a "but" I hear you saying! and you would be right as I still seem to have slight depression periodically once or twice a week,I do believe that you can suffer withdrawal issues for about a year, has anyone else experienced symptoms for this amount of time?? I did try StJohns wart till someone told me they are addictive and stopped taking them after a couple of weeks, but hey Ho on I go to the next staging post at 7 months and once again I believe that this site and the people on it helped me to this point where I can say that I am a non smoker. Special thanks to Jamange
Stopped CT: 18th December 2009 after 35 years smoking
