Tomorrow is my 2 year anniversary of no smoking. OMG never ever thought I would be able to say this!!!:eek:
I had smoked for about 40 years and was anticipating dying a smoker. One of the biggest shocks looking back is how I smoked for so long without being able to give up.
Don't get me wrong, it was difficult to begin with but once you are over the initial few weeks and you get your mindset right, it becomes easier and easier, honestly.
I am writing this today because I am back in work tomorrow following a very nasty throat infection. At least two people have said it was because I'd given up smoking. AMAZING logic given its been 2 years and yes, you are right, they were both smokers! The truth is more likely to be because I smoked for all those years.
I am in a very happy place at the moment. My OH has also given up for about 6 months and doing great. We are going on a cruise in May for his 60th and we won't have to worry or feel embarrassed about trying to find somewhere to light up. My youngest son is also trying his best to quit.
This forum is invaluable so keep using it, it helped me immensely.
Good luck to you all wherever you are in your quit.
IT REALLY CAN BE DONE
