That's it!

Hi All

A bit late I know but 3 months completed now and into month 4. As I quit on the 31st August I rounded it up to the 1st for the months that don't have 31 days.

According to my quit app, I have quit for 92days, 21hours. Saved £638.55. Not smoked 2321.99 cancer sticks. Since I have quit 890630 people have passed away in the world due to a smoking related disease.

TBH I don't look at people smoking anymore and think 'it's not fair' it's more of a case of 'ah bless them' there out there in the cold and I'm in the warm. I don't want to sound patronising as I know when I was a smoker, I would have hated a 'reformed ex smoker' thinking like that but I think what I'm trying to say is I do have thoughts about them some days but I do have no desire to smoke. I'm an adult and can function and get through life without smoking, in fact without smoking I can enjoy life more as I'm not being controlled or timing the next smoke. It's kind of like learning a child that they can get through without a dummy or comfort blanket (if that makes sense)? Besides I would never want to go back to day 1 again, I love my quit and care for it :)

I don't post too often these days, I'm more of a lurker but I haven't forgotten you!

I hope you are doing OK and stick with it all it does get loads easier. I never believed it when I was told it but it does.

Keep smiling and be happy

Luv to you all and THANK YOU

  • Well done on 3 months Tinks, some scary statistics as well. Enjoy staying in the warm, all snugged up without the aggravation of having to 'pop' out every now and then, you have every right to feel smug. It's not patronising at all, even the smokers pity themselves for having to do it and we've all been there and done that, to turn a corner and feel good and positive about not smoking is brilliant.

    Keep enjoying the quit,

  • Hi Tinks!

    A massive congrats to you for not only the 3 months but for reaching that point where you see cigarettes as something negative in your life rather than something that embellishes it.

    I think the same thing about smokers, specially because I'm one of these people that can't stand the cold... yet I used to brace myself and pluck up enough courage to go outside and do something which I thought I WANTED to do... when really if I think about it I was miserable doing!

    So great to see you feeling so great... I can't believe I'll be posting in the 4+5 month bit soon!

  • Hey Tinks congrats - I've just done my 3 months too!!! In fact there's only 2 days between us!!!!

  • Hi Tinks, So glad you have got to three months, that's a great quit milestone and things as you say do get easier and easier.

    Before you know it you will be climbing those stairs up to the Penthouse, hope your legs are up too it cause we know your lungs will be.
