21 again!!

21 again!!

Today, 21 months ago, in the early hours I stumped out my last cigarette and never looked back - it has been a roller coaster of journey but worth all the blood, sweat and tears to be here today sharing this and so happy to be smoke free - a lot has changed in my life during this time but luckily and thankfully mostly for the better.

For those early on in their quits, you will be here sooner than you think as the time passes by so quickly once you get your first month over you, just take each day as it comes, embrace being smoke free and never let your guard down. Enjoy the good days which soon outweigh the bad days.

My stats for each milestone continue to get better and better as I continue to reap the benefits and recover (last stat is my favorite!)

Your Addiction

You have quit smoking for:

1 year, 39 weeks, 0 days, 5 hours and 14 mins.

You Have Resisted Over 15,982 Cigarettes Since You Became A Non Smoker

10,126,398 People Have Died From A Smoking Related Illness Since You Quit Smoking

You Have Saved Over €12,785.86 By Quitting Smoking

You Spent Over €151,001.67 On Cigarettes While You Were A Smoker

You Will Now Live 122 Days, 4 Hours, 0 Minutes Longer On Average

Thank you rose001 I promise, it does / will get easier - you will be 6 months next month and think that is a turning point in our quits, half way to the penthouse and 1 year milestone so the strength and determination will be fierce, you will and can do this :)
