Nearly a year since I had my last cigarette

Skyelady6 Months Smoke Free

Well I can't believe I'm writing this, its been nearly a whole year since I last smoked a cigarette and I've also joined WW and have lost 9lb in 4 weeks so I'm tackling the 3 stone weight gain now. So to all those starting out on their smoke free journey, you can do it, I was lucky with the aid of champix I went off fags quite quickly and have never suffered a craving, I've been off the champix for 9 months and apart from the weight gain I feel great. As I said I'm tackling the weight gain with WW as I'm rubbish by myself so having the app and access to recipes is great. So after 35 years of smoking I feel great

Well done Skyelady. That’s great news. I’ll be 3 years smoke free this summer. Champix really helped me (although the bad dreams and nausea wasn’t pleasant) I did not gain any weight as I continued going to the gym and the Allan Carr ‘Stop smoking without putting on weight’ book really helped.

Great to read your positive and motivating story 👍🏼👍🏼
