I've finally reached the Millinium!
I can remember the first time I logged on to the Quitline blogs and was in awe of people who had quit for 10, 50, 100 days let alone 1000 days.
Seeing their stats motivated me to strive to post the same stats in the future as they had.
From day one of my quit I read and wrote blogs every day for months on end. So many inspired me (and I hope I inspired even just one) to succeed.
To list all that inspired me would be nearly an impossible task to undertake. Put it this way, if you commented on any of my posts (positive and even the occasional negative) I thank you.
There are a few special people I'd like to thank personally but in case I forget to mention anyone who deserves it I will not do so. However I'm sure you know who you are.
To all you newbies, I urge you to use this blog site often. You will get heaps of inspiration and advice here. Read blogs and write blogs. Commenting on others blogs not only inspires others but it also gives you a "feel good" feeling knowing that even just one comment you have posted may be the one that inspires and reinforces their determination to succeed.
I no longer need to be on the blogs anymore because I know for a fact that I will never smoke again however I will still be lurking though to see all your progresses and congratulating you on your major milestones. You can't get rid of AXL that easily lol.
As some of you know my mantra that I started using 1000 days ago was "I will not be beaten".
Guess what Nicodemon? After 38 years of being addicted to you I finally kicked your butt!
Take care my "quit family" and have a happy smokefree day😁😃😎

Only 60 more days till the magical 1000!
My mantra when I first started (and throughout) this quit attempt was
"I will not be beaten!"
I think it's time to change it to "I have beaten nicodemon!"
Have a great evening my "quit family"🐸🐸🐸

Flying to Wellington tomorrow for tomorrow nights concert. I've been waiting months for this day to arrive and it's finally here!
I've splashed out and spent $352.40 a ticket plus airfare and accommodation on top of that. I'll only be a few metres from the stage! This is my reward for being smokefree for nearly 900 days and I think I deserve this treat.
Have a great day my "quit family"😎😎😎

Some of you may know that I've eaten a lot of peppermints since I quit smoking. I was replacing the nicotine addiction with a sugar addiction. With the increased sugar intake combined with the slowing down of metabolism due to not smoking I've gone from around 73kgs (before I quit smoking) to 86 kgs when I weighed myself this morning. So I've gone from looking like a Scandinavian racing sardine to looking more like a plump snapper.
I feel great though as I'm fitter, happier and loving my smokefree life.
It's great to see so many "Newbies" on here lately. Visit this site often. Follow advice and inspiration given from your fellow "Newbies" and us "Oldies". Trust me, I couldn't have succeeded in quitting without it.
Have a great day my "Quit Family"😆😆😆
PS: I haven't had a peppermint for over 3 weeks.
