Still going strong!

That's me at four months now and feeling very proud of myself. Starting to believe I can do this. Still getting some urges but manage to work my way through them and feels great when i realise I have got through another one. Also realised that I now go long periods without thinking about it which for me is amazing. I have never managed to get this far before. I feel so much better for stopping, my very ugly cough has finally gone. Wish I had done this years ago. For all you people out there struggling to quit, just believe....YOU CAN DO IT.

Hello, I've just reached 2 months with no smoking it is getting easier by the day but i wanted to say congrats to you and hope you are feeling the benefits , I'm finding that certain foods i don't like anymore as the taste buds have come back to normal, i had a big mac meal the other day and it was disgusting i found it far to salty, wont eat them ever again lol anyway keep it up your doing great :-)

Kizwiz 4 months is awesome and you should be very proud of yourself,you seem to be managing really well.I'll be at 6 months in a week or so and the cravings have all but gone now,I get the odd one but nothing that isn't manageable.I'm sure it'll be the same for you.Karyn,I went off Marmite and Branston Pickle,it's just really odd that stuff you really loved is now awful.Well done on your 2 months, a real achievement.You're doing great as well so just keep going one day at a time.

I also use the ecig maybe that is why I don't notice the change in my taste buds?

Also meant to say Juliann that I have found that using the ecig too much late at night can disturb my sleep so I try to limit it which has worked for me x
