Hi to all, I have stopped smoking nearly 2 years in February, I haven't been on here for a while because I really haven't thought about smoking at all but now I feel I should give something back to this forum that really helped me in the beginning when I was struggling. It really is worth the longing the wanting the yearning for a cig, in the beginning it is hard you think you will never stop thinking about them but you do, you really do. I smoked for 35 years and I thought I would smoke all my life, but now I am free how? I didn't want to do it any more I hated the smell and every thing about smoking It is so anti social now. What I am saying is folks if I can do it anyone can!

Congratulations on quitting smoking.:)


Great to hear from you Betty Boop, and happy to know you will soon be at the two-year mark! It's amazing how little attention we think about smoking after we've been through such a long period of 'quitting', isn't it?

I can only echo you by saying that I'm really pleased at having managed to get rid of the habit and all the negatives it brought into my life.

It may seem like a long and difficult journey, but it can and has been done by many people before, and it does pay rewards in the long run. The key is to keep your eye on the long-term ambition and take one day at a time. At some point, it will no longer be an ambition, but a way of life.
