5 Months Smoke Free

YAY 5 months ago today was my first smoke free day :D :D

Since then I have:

Not smoked at least 3,026 fags

Saved £1,210.40

Given myself 12 days, 14 hours and 36 mins longer to live

I don't stink of fags, am not paranoid about breathing fagbreath over people or worrying if they can smell fags on me :D

I love not worrying about where I can smoke, no more diving out in the rain to smoke as fast as I can manage (which was very, lol), not wondering if I needed to buy fags - or if I had enough!!

And as far as kicking the e-cig goes, I'm getting there. Am still at the "feeling lost and down" stage with that but know from kicking the real thing that it's only a stage I'm going through.

Next step, lose the weight I've put on :eek:

    Way to go girl:). Well done, I know you've had a bumpy ride on this quit smoking rollercoaster, but my goodness you've came through it all on top.

    I've said it before, this is definitely 'the one for you'. Well done:)

    And despite the struggles you've had, you are always such an encouraging and supportive member of the Forum too:)

    Aww thanks Fi, that's really nice!!

    It's not been easy, but in a way that makes me more determined 'cos I don't want all of this to have been for nothing and definitely don't want to do it all over again!!

  • What can I say - YOU DA WOMAN!!!:D:D:D

    5 months is massive hon, one more and you'll have half a year in your pocket - how amazing is that?! You're one of my forum heroes and a good pal into the bargain, well done our Gemma, you're a star and we all love you to bits!xxx

    Aww thanks Kat!! *Higs fives*

    I definitly wouldn't be here without you - and I owe you for last Saturday dragging me away from the e-cig!!

    Talking of which, have just been to do the weekly food shop and have dumped both e-cig batteries in the battery box - so no chance of smoking that any more :D :D :D

    OK half of Lidl wondered why that girl was grinning inanely but it feels fab :o :p :D

  • Cool Gemma-Lou!

    Personally I'd have disposed of the batteries by either throwing them from a cliff top into the sea Tom Cruise Top Gun style, or burying them somewhere with a signed note saying "buried with my habit in 2013" or something like that...

    You did the responsible thing tho' :cool: As I said, congrats on 5 months, another line in the sand drawn....and crossed.... x :)

    Thanks Sophie!!

    Am doubly proud 'cos I have got really close to caving in and smoking but haven't (that's down to this place, am sure of it) and on my 5 months day binned those damn batteries :D :D

    How are you getting on? x

  • Massive well done Gemma-lou, you've not had an easy time lately but you are getting there.:cool:

    Please stick with it as the older you get and the more years you smoke the harder you will find it is to quit.

    Stay strong:)

    Thanks Netti!!

    Am definitely going to stick with it, I quit for 18 months back in 2008 when I was 24 and that short time ago was much easier than this so really don't want to quit again later on :eek:

  • Very well done Gemma. Only one more room before the penthouse:D:D:D
