2 years quit!

Hi all,

I'm now soon approaching 2 years quit! - Whoop whoop :-) (23rd of September)

I couldn't be more proud of this achievement. It was extremely difficult, but it was truly the best thing I could of done for my health.

I'm now able to 'breath' again! I'm also richer, healthier and generally a more happier person than I ever was when I smoked.

I still often pop on this forum and offer support where I can as I know first hand how painful giving up smoking can be.

The worst thing about giving up smoking for me was my breathing and anxiety issues I suffered, but believe me once you get though it you will never go back. It's like being reborn again.

I would like to thank everyone on quit support for their support in helping me quit. You all have a special place in my heart.

And I would like to especially like to thank Jillygirl. You are truly amazing and you're a real inspiration to me. I hope your feeling better :-) x

For those in this journey or now starting Stoptober. Good luck, if your need any help, shout and scream.

Stay positive,

  • Ian--I think I am having the issues you spoke about--the breathing--and I focus on it and it turns into anxiety and can hardly function--feels like a panic attack--I hope you get this and get back to me--Im a wreck worrying about this--I took breathing tests and did fine--so I don't know what this is--Thanks MmeT
