One Year!

Yesterday at 10:21am was my one year mark. This 30 year smoker has not had a single cigarette or drag on a cigarette for one year and a day! I had a fit quitting even after I discovered e-cigs, but finally decided ok God, you gotta help me. He did and so I smoked that final smoke, picked up my exit and haven't looked back. I don't even think of them anymore. I thought at some point I'd have one because I loved smoking so much, but I don't think so. I love being free from the chains too much to ever go back even for a visit.

    There are so many people on here that have loads of great hints and tips for whichever quit method you've chosen so if you need anything please just yell :)

  • Aup Aliebee, a big warm welcome to our lovely quit support community :) Its great to hear your starting your quit on Monday :) just wondering if you have made a quit plan or not :o

    If not, then just sit yourself down a minute and when your comfy, I will begin :o

    Write a list of WHY's you want to quit.

    Think of when it is going to be the hardest times for you and try to think of a way to help you at these times :)

    Maybe think of a hobby that you could do, which would keep you and your hands busy :)

    Are you thinking of exercising - running, walking, going to the gym or dancing to a cd :o exercising has helped me a great deal :)

    Are you going to use a form of NRT to help you at them bad times :o

    What about joining a quit smoking cessation at your Doctors or chemist :)

    Snacking :o a lot of our members on here, including myself, find that snacking on things help us to get through :) preferably healthy snacks of course :D :D I found that when I first quit, ermmm, I couldnt go to the toilet :o sooooo, I started snacking on grapes, job sorted :)

    Maybe put the money you would have spent on fags, in a jar, this way you can watch it grow and grow, day by day and I tell ya it soon grows :) This is a great incentive for you to quit :)

    Well, I expect your nodding off now :o so I will leave you to it and good luck for Monday :)

    Pete :)
