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.

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

Think about this Jelly Kelly & Susie. There could have been a massive celebration if you Jelly Kelly started 6 days later & you Susie, 4 days later, then we would all be exactly even.

Alas, Pop's has to come third. lagging 4 days behind Susie & 6 days behind Jelly Kelly.

Well done JK. on your very impressive 444 days, you too Susie for your 442 days & i will be content with my 438 days.

Haven't had the official OK from QL yet but I think they'll be okay with me adding to last year's stats. Remember to log in or I'll extrapolate your stats because I am pretty happy with the fact that you'll stay smoke free.

Total savings: $5,019.30

Did my gum disease treatment. I was sooo brave. The dentist was brilliant. 3 sessions. Didn't really hurt but was uncomfortable. 1 hour a session. Don't know if we can save my front tooth. Legacy of smoking people. I am an attractive just turned 40 year old and I may possibly lose a front tooth from gum disease from smoking. However so pleased I have had the treatment and my gums are healing.

Profile image thinandbeautifulL...22 November, 2013

so sad to hear what about an infill?

Profile image Blondene22 November, 2013

i love going to the dentist, that's awesome that you have done your treatment and its a good motivator to keep smokefree go you!!!!

Profile image Helen10122 November, 2013

wow wow wow great stats. Glad your on the mend with your teeth. I'm sure they will do what they can with your front ones. Stay strong and power on.

Profile image Lindam22 November, 2013

YAH,!!! Well done, huge congratulations.

Profile image Jassie23 November, 2013

Hi JK Congrats on 395 days - awesome.

Profile image jellykelly23 November, 2013

gum disease doesn't show when you smoke. It is very very common for people to discover they have gum disease after they quit. If your gums bleed after you quit and don't stop after a while, or you have gum recession, get them checked. They have to pull my tooth out, it has a very short root and because of the gum disease I have bone loss, so the tooth may not physically be able to stay in my mouth. It is loose.

Profile image thinandbeautifulL...23 November, 2013

;( im sorry jellykelly *hugs! they can give you a fake tooth right? my dad lost all his front in a car accident when he was 20 from being a boy racer and now goes to a place in otara they last 5 years and is $500 that's for the whole front bottom and top I hope it helps and they are good you wouldn't even know. I hope this helps :) xx

Profile image clarence the cat23 November, 2013

So brave of you to give the treatment a go. A false tooth would be Ok wouldnt it? Costly probably but worth it. Hope you're gonna celebrate your 400 SMOKEFREE days.

Profile image Sexymwahz23 November, 2013

395 Smokefree Days Jelly Kelly. Awesomness and all the best. That front tooth will not define your beauty. Just a great memory of your strength and inspiration to share your experience and knowledge with one and all.. Wow 400 doors are opening up for your celebration tomorrow ~mw(",)h~

Profile image Susie23 November, 2013

Loving the stats JK. Hope your front tooth is OK after the gum treatment you've put yourself through

Profile image rainbowfish25 November, 2013

Hey JK, even if you lose that front tooth, things could be worse. Imagine continuing to smoke and continuing to do damage to your gums, to the point where you couldn't just tuck into a delish morsel of food that required munching.
Yay for healing gums!!!
Congrats on your stats, practically at the four hundy now!

Profile image Julz198128 November, 2013

I have the same thing. They gave me a root canal in my front tooth so I do not lose it. Lucky we did not continue to smoke, teeth lost for sure x
