A century smober !

100 days NOPE…… totally smoke sober. Free and can’t be more thankful that my life had changed in such a way that it feels like I am living a new life.

Am I a century wiser ? ?........ Not sure but I have learned that to make a smoke free living is to make a new life. The normal life style carried on and did not change to adapt to my new style of living. My smoking friends still smoke, my smoking peers still smoke and there is still cigarettes for sale in supermarkets and filling stations.

In the beginning they would put out a cigarette when I am close it is now normal to continue to smoke. I do not know if I am just over sensitive but it seems that they are testing me now because I know deep inside they also want to quit and can’t believe I succeeded this far. Well..... I am damn proud of myself and seriously chuffed that I could kick the “Nicodemon’s” ass for a 100 days continuous !!!!

So my conclusion for us quitters to stay smoke free we need to adapt or die (Fall back into enslavement) I know that I must be on a constant lookout for the triggers and not to let my guard down. It won’t help to run away and hide in a cave although it would have been nice for a year or ten.;)

I must live my new life, where I have been given a second change, normal and just enjoy every moment of it breathing without a wheeze, smelling the wonders of nature, tasting all the tastes and do not cough myself out of breath practising my favourite sport. I am FREE !!!!!!!!! :) :)

Well done you. I think the freedom from the tyranny of nicotine is the best thing about giving up.


Unbelievable journey to get rid of the entrapment Sharon...... But enjoyable in some sense looking back of course...Whilst in it, it was horrific !!


Congratulations on your well deserved success. It's so good to know that there actually is light at the end of the tunnel if only we can stick to our guns and wean ourselves off our nasty smoking addiction. Respect to you Hercu - a fantastic achievement that I hope I'll manage to aspire to.:)


Great to see you happy about your quit. You've done really well and ofcourse you should be proud of what you've accomplished. It's no small feat. I wish you many many years to enjoy tis new lifestyle choice. Well done.
