Hi everyone! ~ I'm 68 and live in Cornwall, UK. I have followed this support group right through my journey and now after 10 months, I can honestly say after many years, I'm a non-smoker. I had my last cigarette on November 2nd at 8.30am ~ I remember it clearly as it was such a milestone in my life. I had just run out of cigs and thought I'd need to get some more..However, I made the decision then to end this addiction & as I was about to move to a new home, decided that I didn't want to have a home which always smelt of stale tobacco. My husband died 3 years ago and my smoking initially got out of control, particularly as I was left in a dreadful financial mess. I did and still do occasionally use an E-Cigarette which definitely helped. If I found I was too edgy, I sat and read a book for half an hour until the craving stopped. In all honesty, I have found it much easier than I could have believed after 50 years of addiction. I'm a singer and my voice has improved so much. The smell of smoke from other people turns my stomach now ~ I had no idea I was one of those! Yes, I had some weight gain, but am now addressing that. I know I'd rather be a bit overweight than a smoker. If I can do it with all the problems I've had over the past 3 years, anyone can ~ Believe me. I have more cash now, feel brilliant. It's as if I've been reborn!
