First of all it's great to be back, and really great to see so many people who I know still here and still quit. Also great to see so many new quitters around - this place helped me massively over the first 15 months or so and it will help you all too
But - Yep, it's 2 years today since I took my last ever puff on a ciggy.
And what a difference it's made, I'm hardly the same person.
I'm bigger (note I didn't say fatter) - 3 stone heavier, 6 inches on my chest, 3 on my neck and 4 on my waist.... but I'm also much fitter and was a skinny little runt beforehand anyway. I look much better.
On the subject of fitter, I have cycled over 2000 miles in the last 2 years and walk lots more too.
I would have never got back into that as a smoker.
Wallet is a bit heavier too, of course.
But the biggest change is in my attitude, knowing you can do something as life changing as quitting means you feel you can take on anything
Anyway, do I still want to smoke? No. Not for 2 years - I didn't want to, because if I did I wouldn't have quit. Do i still think of the ciggys? Occasionally, but only occasionally - but I don't want to smoke, so it doesn't matter.
If you really don't want to smoke, then don't.
It's not always easy - but stick to your free choice not to smoke and not your enslaved choice to light one up and you will get there.
