2 days and counting

Hey guys and girls!

New member here and stopped a 17 year smoking habit Sunday just gone...Recently gone through a divorce after finding my wife was seeing someone else

I actually think it was a good thing as its made me reassess my health and future and realised that stopping smoking was essential if Im to move on and become happy again whilst also becoming attractive to find a new partner

2 days smoke free now and never felt better....Got more confidence now and not having to worry about my bad breath and smelly hands lol

Love this community and really inspired by some of the stories on here! Hopefully I can get to that level in time :)

  • Thanks for the positive words of support :) This is why I love forums like this, it really helps to get affirmation from others who have been through the same!

    Currently using a e-cig to help through the cravings but looking to reduce the nicotene on the next juice to low and then eventually to zero!

    Noticing the difference in the money Im saving now also, nearly £30 in 3 days, at this rate I can book a holiday in the next few weeks and finally not have to dread a long flight without smoking or puff up in one of those horrible smoking rooms!! :D

    On day 3 now and must say Im noticing a difference in my breathing and general mood!

    Gums are a bit sore but read on here that others are experiencing the same so guess I just got to ride it out and eat plenty of fresh fruit and veg!

  • you are doing brilliantly...just the knowledge that it does get easier and none of symptoms of recovery last too long...see it as a healing process :) :)

  • Hey smokefreebee GOOD ON YOU!!! What a fab mind set you have taken on board during what I'm sure was quite hard! Well done you my cap is tipped in yr direction! I'm going on 11 weeks ???
