Oh my gosh, I haven't smoked for 18 weeks. It's gone so quick. According to my phone app I haven't smoked 1523 fags and haven't wasted 6 days, 8 hours smoking!!!
Have also saved £154.11 which is not a great deal as since switching to roll ups (after quit failure in 2007) I cut down loads.
For those of you following behind me and struggling, I struggled too, I have had falling outs with family members, stress at work, ongoing trouble with my teenage son & the police and I thought at the time that I could not cope without smoking, I had rages, tears, moodiness and could have quite easily also had a tantrum which is, quite frankly, ridiculous :eek: Sleepless nights, coughing and bleeding gums too.
Now I'm so pleased I didn't give in as I cope with things now without the nicotine crutch, which wasn't ever needed in the first place and I'm genuinely happy that I don't smoke any-more. I now sleep better than I ever have, the rages have gone and the bleeding gums are improving.
I know I can't ever smoke again, not even just one. Just as an alcoholic can't have just one drink because smoking is an addiction to drugs. I accept this because of all the good things, all the benefits of not smoking.
Good luck everyone, including any Stoptober quitters. It isn't easy, but it gets better fairly quickly. :):)
