Almost 4 months smoke free

Josie12181 Year Smoke Free

I have not posted in a long time so I figured I would just update my status. Happy to report I am 5 days short of 4 months smoke free. I never thought I would be able to do this after being a pack a day smoker for 36 years. Life is good!

It's shocking to really put the addiction in its place. You're doing great. I'm sure you've had some rough patches and those will happen, but wow- almost four months. What keeps you most motivated after all this time? How do you feel physically?


Great to hear from you Josie1218 and glad you are plodding along nicely, well done :)

Yeah!!! Am a month behind you. Smoked 35 years and didnt think i could either. Would you share the benefits of 4months compared to 3months? Am struggling a bit bc i e seen little benefit yet. Sick 2months of quit. Have another disorder this could be complicating so am searching for every benfit to remind myself of.

It is important to remember that it takes some people longer to see the benefits than others especially if looking out for them, I thought I would be fit as a fiddle as soon as I stopped but it doesn't work that way, it is a slow gradual recovery and repair journey but the remarkable thing is the body does and will recover and its up to you how you take the recovery, for me, I embraced each day smoke free
