700 days smokefree

BOOM!!

Have to say, it was the hardest thing I have ever ever done. I truly believe I was a drug addict. I cried, tantrumed, raged, hid out, got angry, weepy, emotional,and never mind the physical symptoms......break outs, bleeding gums, terrible constipation,sleeplessness, achy muscles vivid dreams, eat until my stomach hurt.....oh man!!! But I didnt smoke!! I even quit coffee after a while too. I am much stronger than I thought I was and now know I can do anything. If I can do it you can do it!! I smoked since I was 12 years old and I was a heavy smoker. I didnt go anywhere with out my smokes. I couldnt imagine in a million years I could ever be smokefree let alone not obsess about it. Now I dont think about smoking and I can be around smokers without a second thought (other than thank goodness I dont smoke)

Keep going, one day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time. Whatever it takes..just dont smoke! Youre awesome, you can do it!!
Smokefree days: 700 days

Stats Update: 651 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 651 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 9765
Total savings: $8,264.10

Wow, seems longer lol! in about 3 months I will be 2 years quit. Never thought I could do it. I tried that many times! Even made it to the 3 month mark a few times before falling off the wagon. And then one day I realised it wasnt going to get any easier and by sheer determination pushed through kicking and screaming and here I am. The kicking and screaming stopped a while ago thank goodness and these days the thought of smoking barely passes me. In fact in the freezing cold of winter in CHCH my partner and I have said a few times "thank god we dont smoke" as we see people outside in the freezing cold having a fag. Certainly not a lot richer for having quit but the bills are getting paid and we have extra in the bank, have been on a big holiday to Gold Coast and the kids have all they need and more so definately has made a difference financially. And we certainly eat well. (I laugh as my belly jiggles) I had a lot of side effects quitting, including insomnia, rage, being certain I was surrounded by idiots, uncontrollable random weeping, mouth ulcers, terrible constipation, breakouts, bloating, weight gain, headaches, depression, boredom, fidgety, loss of concentration and foggy head, achy muscles, bleeding gums (then got diagnosed with gum disease that had previously been missed as doesnt always show as a smoker). All glamorous stuff, and all totally worth it. It does come to an end eventually. One day at a time, or one hour at a time, or one minute at a time. Whatever it takes. Just dont smoke. And one day you will pop your head up and it will be 651 days! :) P.S Youre awesome! And dont you forget it!

Profile image alisont5 August, 2014

Thank you jellykelly, great blog and fab stats. Thank god the side effects come to an end and that its worth it in the end Good luck for your 2 years-hope your going to give yourself a little reward

Profile image sunray5 August, 2014

503 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 503 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 7545
Total savings: $6,388.20

Wow, really? $6388?! :) hmm, don't know where that went. Well some of it on my belly that's for sure :) I don't think about smoking anymore, and the overeating has tamed itself also. Took about a year. I put on 5/6 khaki after quitting, but i stopped gaining weight and can see I could lose it now. Eating definatley filled the gap for me, emotionally I think. I am a lot more used to feeling my feelings now, instead of having to squash them away with nicotine or food. I never ever thought I could do this, had so many attempts, I cried, tantrummed, yelled, raged, and i just kept not smoking. I have now even quit coffee! Another withdrawl session with that. Life is much simpler not smoking, it used to take up nearly all my time. I had gum disease from smoking ( more than likely from smoking) and it cost $1500 to treat that. Smoking is not attractive! Now my skin glows, I smell good, my breath is fresh and i spend a lot more time with my family. All I can say is, troop it out, stay strong, one day at a time. Because one day you will realise you are out the other side.

Hi JK
It's so good to hear from you. I loved reading your blog, I was nodding the whole way through ha (with agreement). I have been through the same process; smoking definitely supresses emotions, it's about finding other outlets.
Super proud of you. xx
