Some insight to the future

Hello Freedom Fighters,

I thought I would 'touch base' just to say hi to newbies and oldies alike.

I know how helpful it is to get posts from people who have quit for some time now (and I see myself in that bracket)

So I am running towards my seventh month, so how does it feel? well, I have no real urges anymore, I sometimes 'miss them' (I Know ridiculous) but I see myself as an ex-smoker and not a non-smoker.

I live with a smoker-a heavy smoker, he smokes in the kitchen next to the open door-so I regularly get a 'whiff' but I hate it-I don't want it, I dont urge for it, I don't need it...it is a lovely place to be-I feel comfortable and happy and relaxed.

I am more confident, I smell great, I have saved £1650-and just booked a 3 week break to Croatia-cash with my savings.

So....you maybe on day one, or month two...but you will soon be here-in my world, a non smoking happy world (and believe you me I was a 20 a day loved to smoke woman) but now I am richer,smell great, feel free-IT IS WORTH THE HASSLE-STAY STRONG XXXX

  • Hello Helene, I choose Croatia, because I have never been, and I like to dive ...heard the Istrian riviera is beautiful, for sailing and diving..hence the choice xx

    Yes Debbieh..I had already won the 'head battle' before I started the fight for freedom-I hated smoking the last few months before my cessation, and thats' the key:o...I cannot wait for you to be there....:)

    Thankyou Haze xxx

  • Brilliant post thanks for taking the time to share your story :D:D xx

    I wanted to, because your quits are becoming just as important-I hate the fact that this addictive drug has slowly been killing us all this time-keep it up-it is so worth it x

  • Great post and very encouraging to new and (not so new :)) quitters.

  • Thank you Sweet B- that was a wonderful post. :)

    I hope you have a fab time when you go to Croatia. I've heard it is very beautiful. You must take lots of pics you can share with us when you return.

  • Good work. Especially sharing a house with a smoker. I still miss them (well not so much fags themselves but the ritual involved with smoking them) occasionally, but no urge to have one again, that's for sure.

  • Double respect, CT and living with a smoker! I found the stench coming off my OH quite nauseating, how much of that was down to champix I don't know as I'm sure I would have caved if I'd have gone CT - Well done that woman :cool:

    My only vice is red wine now....but one cannot be too good can one :D

    You are welcome Susan, I just want to spread the word and give people alittle insight what its' like to get this far, I can remember feeling 'loss' and thinking I will never feel the 'same' again...but I actually feel happier, more relaxed and more 'me' (if that makes sense) xxx

  • Another fantastic post Sweet, it's great isn't it to reach the point where smoking no longer appeals...the fact you did it CT and with a smoker in your midst :eek: still impresses the hell out of me :D
