One year quit for me today. Gone pretty quick really - especially the last three months.
For me the 'magic bullet' was giving up booze for the first six months of my quit. Before doing that I was trapped in a cycle of give up for a few days / weeks, then out for a few beers, crafty snout, game over.
I feel a lot better physically and I've really noticed the difference financially. I had a ten day holiday in Dubai that was paid for by money that I didn't spend on fags!!!
For years I wondered whether I would ever be able to quit but if I can, anyone can!! For anyone struggling in the early stages of your quit - just grit your teeth and hang in there, it does get easier!
All the best fellow quitters.
