OMG thats 46 weeks!!

Well i logged in to this site way back when i was just giving up and lost my log in details and all that blah blah!!

So anyway was checking out my calendar and its been 46 weeks since i gave up and not one has touched my lips.

I am still suffering with my asthma which i was really hoping would clear up once i gave up but it seems not......but over all its all good.

I dont smell anymore and i can smell again :D

How is everyone else doing?

  • Well done squid, almost a whole year for you :D

    Hopefully your asthma will settle eventually, has it improved at all since you stopped?

  • well done you-it is such a good feeling isnt it?:D

    wonder if asthma is not getting better cos of pollen count and allergy time now?

    sure it will improve loads soon .

    seems to be a lot of hayfever around at the moment. nasty :mad:

    see you I hope around 100 day post. x:D

  • Hi everyone.

    Well to be honest i never thought i would make it this far because i have a very addictive nature! It was a toss up between my two addictions fags or the gym...the gym won :)

    We dont have such a pollen problem here, its the middle of our winter and we have snow ;) I think i just have bad asthma and if i hadnt given up i would have died early for sure. I still take three puffers 4 times a day, plus extra when i need it, but because i go to the gym most days i have very good lungs when i am well, and i keep doing a little more just to keep well. Which makes being sick worse then anything.

    On the plus side our new budget has been set and on the 1st July a packet of 20 fags will now cost nearly £6.

    With the money i would have spent on smokes were hoping to go on holiday next Jan. That will be an experience, flying without the panic, going out for a meal without the rush, oh i cant wait.

    I do think though once you get past a certain time, you almost forget that you were ever a smoker (most of the time).

    But there are times of stress when you instantly think "SMOKE" but it soon passes.

    I will skip into 1 year in 43 days, whats that all about :D
