Go me! Feeling good. No longer get pangs or miss it. Not sure what made me come here tonight just suddenly thought I'd see how much money I've saved. Can't believe I would've spent that much, can't imagine how I would've afforded it - wish I'd actually saved that money - imagine the holiday I could have!!!

Hi Quit Fam
25 weeks smoke free today. 7 more days will be 6 months (182 days)... quite proud of that :)
I finished work a bit early, been hauling timber on an older T880 Heavy Hauler Kenworth today, then went to the doctors and proud to tell her that Im nearly 6 months smoke free. She was so impressed that I got a stoptober badge, a smokefree toothbrush, a sticker and a rubber braclet lol.
Its so nice to see all the new quitters on here, kia tupato in your quit.. stand up and own it, take responsibility and pride in your quit, do it your way and be blimin proud!!!
Sending out love and strength to everyone.. also thinking of you GTMI.. hope your ok havent heard from you in a while. God bless n take care xx
day 9! double digits soon yay!
Beautiful day in Auckland today! And so far I'm on day nine but it is my second day off the gum and not craving a smoke..on day one I was thinking to myself I can do this bearing in mind after being a heavy smoker for soooo long that it was going to be hard! Now I'm sitting at day 9 happy and feel some what relieved that I'm getting through the hard days and just going to do grocerys and not having to wait on someone to go and get a pack of 30grams with papers and filters and not having to re buy lighters because either another smoker pockets it or I loose them 😂 ! I can really see myself now making this long term goal a reality and you awsome bloggers keep up the amazing work, the support from you all and my family and husband makes this journey alot easier!
Have a lovely weekend everyone! Make it a productive one while the sun is shining 💙
I sometimes run maths numbers to put things into perspective. I recently did one with how much my smoking was costing me over the last 20 years
Today, I was wondering how much *time* we spend having a smoke. So... again, assuming we are doing a pack of 20's a day (if you are buying a pack every day, you were a pack a day smoker).. and it may take around 7 and half minutes to go through one cigarette... and a day is measured at 15 hours (to give you time to sleep)
In a single year:
-- we would have smoked around 7300 cigarettes
-- we would have spent 54,750 minutes having those smokes
-- which translates to around 910 hours of our time would be spent having those smokes in a single year
-- that translates to just about 60 *days* you are standing having a smoke.. (based on 15 hour days)
-- which means, you are spending around 17% of your waking up time smoking..
In my 20 years.. I would have been smoking cigarettes vs doing something else for around 1200 *days*.. which is.. 3.3 years.. enough time to do a degree at University, learn a new language, make 3 babies, etc etc etc :)
I'm now looking forward to spending those 910 hours every year doing something more useful like time with family!
Into the 9th day and all ok,put my 1st patch last nite so am on lozenges and patches to cope,does make a difference,my stepdaughter (Amy) is a great help and she is giving up soon,she never smokes when i visit which is appreciated,hope everyone is well and enjoying the new life.

Good morning everybody,
Just yelling out quickly to say I'm still going ! Nearly half a kilo not smoked.....ewwwww.......
Been busy renovating my son's caravan. It's been fun, learned a lot of new skills and completely wore myself out.
But the result is stunning. The boy's over the moon as he should be :P
So, yep, money gone, needing some rest but wow the amount of energy I have when not smoking.....it's all in that caravan now hahaha
have a lovely day everybody :)
