Two years!

I've made it two years! Quitting was one of the best decisions I've ever made. In the time since I've quit I've lost weight, gotten in shape and can now run up to ten miles! My heart condition is gone, and asthma is much better, typically only have a flair when allergies are bad. I've gotten my finances in order; it's easier when you have $10 extra per day not going to smokes! I'm just more productive overall. It's amazing how much time you have when you aren't wasting your life smoking! For those of you starting, it is hard, but it is so worth it. This is the best gift you will ever give yourself. Happy New Year!

Wow I wish that had happened to me ! I just got fat, didn't really notice the money after a month but I'd hate to try and find the money to buy cigarettes with now. I can agree on the lung thing though, our lungs aren't designed to have smoke put in them every 45 minutes

Good luck with the future !.

Well the weigh loss wasn't without a good deal of effort. I'd lost 40 pounds prior to quitting. I gained some back at first. Probably about half what I'd lost within the first year. Then I lost it again along with a bit more, and got in shape. It was a journey for sure lol. Congrats on your quit as well! 7 years is great!!!

Thanks, lucky you !. I'm into bodybuilding and the extra weight helped me gain more mass but I gained alot of weight and then leveled out at a slightly lower weight, but I do weigh alot more than I did when I smoked.

Good luck with the quit though...
