I would like everyone's outlook to this. When your quitting or when you feel you've quit. How do you know how long or when. Do you become a non smoker or an ex smoker. I know everyone's feelings and perception to this will differ massively. I am very interested to how we all feel. Some people have never lost some part of their life as a smoker. A friend told me 10 years after quitting every now and then he feels his top pocket for his smokes but then says he doesn't know why as his not craving for one. My husband 20 years ago put his smoke out and said I give up I'm not smoking anymore and never really had any cravings. I quit smoking and then was doing the sneaky ones once for 9 months, then thought Bugger it these cravings are never going to go away. DER Jenny you keep feeding the nicotine demon with all those sneaky ones. Everyone is different how do you feel non smoker / ex smoker. Any other peoples stories?
