Today is 14 weeks and 1 day since I stopped, the longest period since I started forty years ago. I have been holding this date in my mind for a good few weeks now, willing myself on to get there. Now I've reached it I'm feeling very, very pleased but am aware it could become an anticlimax. So, I'll go back to using the months as milestones for now. Some stats: reached a 5km running distance in 35 minutes, and now need to bring it under 30 minutes (that might take some time. Running for 20 or more minutes without walking is a big challenge for me. My lungs do not feel good, but....); £891 not spent on cigarettes. Still broke though! I must be rewarding myself far too often. 14lbs increase in weight - that is my new challenge. I want half of that healthily gone by mid-July.Being amongst other smokers at times is not causing problems. Yes, it's a good day. And thanks to everyone on here who is posting words of encouragement or simply reporting on their journey and success. Really beneficial.
