9500 i have not smoked "high five"
So my stats say 9500 smokes i have not smoked, i am now a non smoker, i no longer think of smoking, i no longer crave, i no longer have the nicodemon in my life.
I love not smoking! ♥♥♥
it does get better, it does fade into the background that you no longer have thoughts of smoking, be strong, and keep going! if i can do it, anyone can.
Congrats to you all for making better choices in life xxx
Holly Smoke or not to smoke thats the answer HIGH FIVE!!!!!!
453 days Cigarettes
As you can see ive been away a while, yes im still smokefree and what a life i lead now. I came back here because if i can help 1 person acheive a smokefree status i will truly be happy.
OMG all those days ago, it was hard at first and very overwhelming, i gave up smoking after smoking for 28 years!!! if i can do it, anyone can. I was so unfit and overweight and was truly starting to feel the effects of smoking, i took my life back and my only regret is that i didnt do it before.
I now exercise 6 out of 7 days, i walk between 5 and 10k and have now started running, i play netball and have actually got quite good at it! i could have NOT done this as a smoker! i recently had an operation and my dr was stunned at my resting heart rate, he assumed i was very fit and healthy!! before i quit smoking i was pre diabetic and had borderline high blood pressure that had to be checked regularily!
It can be done and its so worth it, I LOVE NOT SMOKING! It has changed my life, i am no longer dictated too by a white stick that was killing me slowly.
Its hard but it can be done, stay focussed and give it your absolute best, your life depends on it!
Good luck to everyone starting and well done to everyone on the journey to a better life!

Happy High Five Friday !!!
oooow 98 days 14 weeks smokefree, nearly in the hundy club!
Although i am this far down the track i still feel chained to the addiction. I have not smoked N.O.P.E but i still feel like im missing something? i am still using losengers so i dont feel free yet, the problem is, without the losengers i feel the need for something! I still have a trigger and that is food, i eat because i am not smoking, yet this automatically triggers a smoking thought! so its like a catch 22!!!!, the losengers stop me overeating but i only have a few left....ah im a little scared...
This makes no sense to me, i am over smoking, i am a non smoker, it is not part of my life, i do not feel the need for a smoke.....yet i feel vunerable still, chained ( has anyone got the key? ) how do i get passed this next step of no NRT? I think i am slightly addicted to losengers...
BUT! ♥ I LOVE NOT SMOKING, I LOVE SMOKEFREE LIFE!!! ♥
Happy Smokefree weekend everybody :)

For the Early Birds just leaving the smokers nest
Last night laying in bed i couldnt help but think of some of the newbies strarting there journey. Some of the post actually stayed inside me so i thought perhaps today i could just pass on some encouragement.
Week ONE is so hard and is the biggest challenge in my opinion. I think its due to the pure panic that sets in, the realisation that you have made this comitment that you are so unsure of. Your life as a smoker evolved around smoking, is dictated too by that little white stick.
24/7 all I could think about was smoking wether it was a positive Yay thought or a negative, i cant do this, its too hard thought. 24/7 Smokes Smokes Smokes. I couldnt concentrate on anything else. Is this what its going to be like, will this feeling go away or is this how hard the journey really is. My mind was going a little crazy i must say, "just one puff and i can start again" but this site had so many bloggers and they were all so positive, they were posting yay day 21, wow day 50 and even some 365+ with fabulous stats and stories. I felt these targets were so far away, that i wont ever make these kinda stats.
I had help, help that you can not buy, everyone on here held my hand and guided me through some of the toughest moments.
24/7 soon turns into moments and those moments are 9 times out of 10 small moments, waves of smoking thoughts but before you know it you have long moments of not thinking about smokes. After week one, will you still have a struggle now and again, Yes but somehow they are different and by this time you have started to realise some of the benefits and have some pride in how far you have come and so with the support on here, those moments can be shared and halved because you are not alone.
We are here for you, keep strong it does get easier :) I am on Day 90 :)
Slowly seeing the sunshine again :)
Well it has been a bumpy ride the last week but i have survived and happy and relieved to say i am still SMOKEFREE N.O.P.E! It was very close to being day one again for me, that nicodemon pulled out all the punches and i was nearly down for the count, i had a wobble and nearly lost my footing but against the odds I am in the lead.
The cloud is lifting slowly but i can see a blue sky coming through
89 days Yep the 100 is in my sight finally!
Keep going everyone, we can do this together, you have all be awsome as usual. xx :)
(((((((((((internet hugs for everyone on this crazy journey ))))))))
