Whoppeeee dee a whole year gone

Whoppeeee dee a whole year gone

Flipping heck, that year has flown by. I am amazed but now would like to poke all the doubters in the eye, not that I will, but am so chuffed as yesterday was my one year anniversary of stopping smoking.

I feel like I have reached a point that I need no longer worry about smoking again. I sometimes still dream about having a fag but know that I will never be tempted to put a cigarette in my gob again.

It has been quite an easy journey for me this time, on previous occasions of trying to stop the urge was too much. The cravings were terrible so I always went back to smoking, like I needed to smoke. I am now cured from the addiction and am happy and content to be free.

Why did it take me so long to really want to be free of smoking? I have no idea why I was read?. I have no idea why reading a self help book clicked with me. It doesn't matter how long it takes or what method you use, just never stop quitting as one day you will be happy and confident that you are finally free.

Good luck to all of you and if I could just help one person stop smoking for good I would be as pleased as punch.

A big well done to everyone who has embarked upon a smoke free life, whether it be one day or one week, the first step is the hardest one of all! If at first you don't succeed try, try, try, try try etc again!

Congratulations, I hit my first-year milestone yesterday. It's great when you see others standing outside in terrible weather just to get that smoke in. I remember being that person and it feels amazing to take a deep breath and thank god I quit. Congrats again, Cheers.
