No Smoking Day

6 Months ago today

I went to see my Dr about stopping smoking. I smoked my last cigg at 10pm and have not had one puff since. There has not been one moment that I would have smoked again. Yes I have had cravings, but EVERY craving I had made me more determined not to smoke.

If you had of said to me 7 months ago I would be sitting here a non smoker in April next year I would have laughed at you. I never thought I could do it. Until that day I got up and thought enough is enough. I don't want to smoke anymore and haven't since.

If I can do it, after 25 years of smoking, so can anyone, you just have to believe it !!!

For the last 6 months 0 hours 6 minutes I have been smoke-free,

Thats 2,548 cigarettes not smoked :eek:,

£616.62 not spent,

and 1 week 1 days 20 hours 20 minutes of life saved

Hi Sian

Everytime I have hit a wall and posted, you have been around to lend support and guidance. I am truly pleased for you keep up the good work!!

Hope you celebrate with lots of wine :D


you must feel so good about yourself ,well done . Hope you are going to treat yourself :D


that really gave this newbie hope! well done you.

and thankyou x


Thank you for your kind messages.

I am over the moon. I think it really hit on sunday when I was out over the allotment all day and smoking didn't even enter my head. Only when a lad was trying to start a bonfire for his grandad and needed help with the light did it occur to me that I thought about it at all.

To any newbies it is so possible to do. It may be ard at times but the other side of that is so good. Don't try to do too much in one go. Take it one minute, one hour, one day at a time. That was my mantra at the start and look whats happened, all those minutes hours and days made up six months !!



Congratulations :D


Well done Sian, its a great feeling.
