starting my one month one day

Morning all

Today is exactly 1 month 1 day since I gave up the smokes.

I am loving the feeling of smelling so fresh.

I can now get in the lift at work without grossing out the other people .

I can breathe taste and most important feel better than I have in a long time.

don’t get me wrong the last month has been hard but not as hard as previous quit attempts.

I personally think cold turkey is the way forward.

I still have cravings from time to time but nothing I cannot handle.

I really honestly think this is it for me on the smoking front now

have a great Monday morning and a smoke free day

xx

  • Well Done!!

    I'm on day 9 and browsing the forums for the milestones still ahead of me.

    I feel just as you do - so chuffed with the freshness, and pleased with my breathing, taste and feeling of well-being.

    I am confident I will stay off the smokes, and I can't wait until I reach my first month.

    Thanks for posting, thanks EVERYONE who posts on their milestones - it is such an inspiration to us newbies - I'm sure everyone who joins this forum looks ahead for an insight to the ups and downs that we will meet on the way.

  • Well done Gary!! A great achievement!!

    I'm only a couple of days behind you. Save me a nice seat not too near the band :D.

  • don’t worry I am saving you a big comfy chair next to the bar .

    also i exactly what you do i love reading people success posts , it makes it more believable in you save to prove that you can actually quit .

    just keep going and the days weeks months and hopefully years will fly by

  • Well done Snow - that's excellent one month and one day - like Ant says its great seeing milestone posts by people ahead of you in the quitting - it really does help. I'm on one week and one day and feeling pretty good considering, I'm Cold Turkying it too. YEAH!!:p

    Snow - your approaching your 3 week milestone soon I see so well done too, in fact well done everyone!!!!:D

  • congrats that's awesome!!

    I was just sneaking at the calendar this morning to see when I can say one month :)

    Cold Turkey seems to work for me so far. All the other stuff I have failed miserably on.

    Friend of mine is hooked on nicotine gum for 5 years now :( not sure if that's any better than fags really.

    Hi NotMe,

    Good to hear you're going well on CT :).

    As for your friend, well obviously the ideal is to be totally free from all forms of nicotine, but I'd say gum is definitely preferable to cigs. You're not getting all the carcinogens, stench and mess!! And it's cheaper!

  • Well done Gary, great achievement :D

    congrats that's awesome!!

    Friend of mine is addicted to the gum to. She goes through 15 pieces a day :eek:

    Cold turkey is definately the way forward (for me anyway NRT didn't work for me) its been so much easier this time, may also be because we really want it this time
