How are you doing??

reader20196 Months Smoke Free

How is everyone doing with all this craziness going on in the world? I was telling myself this week. That I am so happy that I quit smoking almost ten months ago. This would be a very stressful time to be trying to quit. Stay safe everyone.

Thanks for checking Reader. I am fine. Like many other people a bit stir crazy. Stay active (and quit) everyone. Not much we can do about it except follow the medical guidelines, keep busy, and exercise safely. And if we can, give blood or help a neighbor who needs it.

I keep thinking 40 years ago, no Internet, Remote Access, online food, Netflix. Of course no 24 hour dreary news cycle either. No matter how advanced we think we are, nature can always kick us in the teeth.

Be well all.

I'm fine, but on lockdown, and working from home for 12 weeks as my wife is on the list of people at a higher risk from the virus. I'm not finding it too bad to be honest but I must admit that thoughts of smoking have crept back into my head after over four years without a cigarette. I won't do it of course but it's definitely there, which has come as a bit of a surprise.

Yayyyy well done you, I am around 10 months too and don’t give it a thought these days! Who knew 😁

Great job! This whole thing makes me even more grateful that I was able to quit. Today marks 14 months that my lungs have been healing. If I were still smoking I would be even more anxious about the risks of this virus.

Thoughts of smoking have stangely been entering my mind more in lockdown but determined not to smoke again. Eight months without a cigarette, reminding myself of the money I have saved and that I don't need to go out and buy them. Keep safe everyone.

What a fantastic achievement, I tried and failed but I'm deciding on a new quit day I just haven't got the motivation, from my previous quit attempt I know the first day is the hardest.i don't even enjoy the cigarettes I smoke which is the most annoying thing about it.Quitting and staying stopped is my priority and it needs to happen soon....I want what you have( a cigarette free life👍👍

Hello Quitters, the main thing is keep trying. One of these days it will work for you. Sometimes we think we are ready but we aren't. Good luck and stay safe.
