I'm back

Well I'm back after my relapse back in late August, and am now 25+ days into this quit after getting straight back on the wagon, even starting to forget about smoking altogether for 12 ~ 24 hours at a time now.

My life has also changed dramatically since quitting with so many benefits, Here are just a few :

Not having to bow down to the all important king slick nic everytime the beggar calls.

Being able to run a mile for the first time in 8 years non stop in just over 8 minitues.

No more being lethargic every single day :o.

Fresh and minty breath and nice smelling hair and no more yellow fingers and teeth.

No more severe heartburn every day :D.

And these benefits are just the tip of the iceberg for me :)

Anyway I hope I don't sound like I am rubbing it in or bragging as I am not meaning to, I just want to share a few of the benefits to the new or will be quitters, if you quit smoking and stick with it. :)

  • Hurrah and well done, MNSNM! :D

    It's not bragging at all.....it's celebrating the wonderfullness and the freedom of not being chained to that stinking little weed any more! Kick him even further away with a well aimed boot up his ass! :D

    The more good stories that are posted here, the more would-be quitters will see how great it is to be fag-free and that's got be good!:)

    Hey Val :) That's what I thought, Just want to give something back to the amazing forum which was the inspiration for me to quit in the first place.

    You finding it easier now Val? :)

  • I'm finding that it all depends! On a general day-to-day basis I don't really miss them much. But if something is really winding me up, then I want one as badly as I ever did, so I have to try and find some other way of coping with the "something". :(

    So, it's not a walk in the park. There are bad times as well as good times. I just try to learn as I go along and I tell myself that if I am to be a non-smoker then I have to deal with the hard bits as well as enjoy the good bits. It's a bumpy old journey and that's for sure :eek:, but I'm finding that I can cope with a lot more hassle now, before the craving for a fag rears it's ugly head.

    But, as you mention in your previous post, the benefits are fabulous........feeling much more alive and fresh and healthy, lots more money; it's really, really worth pushing on through the bad times and they do get fewer and further apart as time goes by! :)
