Anything is possible


So very soon I will be hitting the one month mark and I have to say I can't believe how fast it's gone by.

If I could pass on one piece of advice it would be to remember that nothing lasts forever. In the beginning I used to think I would never get over the craves or be able to deal with stress or get drunk without having a fag. But I got through them all, felt bad at the time but I ALWAYS felt good again not long after.

I've gone cold turkey and its worked for me, I wanted to get off nicotine straight away and deal with the fall out all in one go. Now don't get me wrong I know I will still have hard days but I know that I will never put one in my mouth again. I am addicted to nicotine and no matter how much that little voice nags at me inside my head I won't give in. And that's the key, to remember you're stronger than any craving, tobacco branding or social pressures.

I read something today about lung cancer and it made me feel physically sick that I could have potentially already done the damage that means I'll end up in that hospital bed one day... If that isn't motivation I don't know what is.

Well done Kim!!! And to do it COLD TURKEY as well - that is fantastic and I'm very envious!!

Kim that message resonates with me, blooming well done. Really, that's great stuff and a great post to prove it, you should be proud :)

Fantastic Kim!!! You sound so positive! Good knowing you are a nicotine addict and that even one puff can get you hooked again! A lot of people get sucked right back into smoking by thinking they can have one and be fine. Just keep thinking NOPE!

Thank you for your kind messages everyone :)

We should all be so proud that we've broken away from that disgusting habit!

I'm hoping this positivity stays with me. Have a great smoke free day :p
