3 months today! Up 2 lbs, but breathing is much better, and my gums finally stopped bleeding. Keep it up friends!

Over 3 months now. Feeling pretty good. Still working on the bleeding gums, though.

How's it gong now, Wicsober?

I'm so happy to be a non smoker knowing it will give me a huge chance of surviving Covid-19 if I ever catch it...

Almost three and half years already!

How is everybody doing?

Re: 24 Hour No Nicotine/No Smoking Club ~ Part 13

That's awesome koala. I'm 9.5 months and had a smoking dream last night. It's been awhile since I've had that happen. I enjoyed the smoke in my dream, followed by the horror of blowing it. I was so happy when I woke up that it wasn't real.
I'm still chewing the gum, but trying not to beat myself up too bad about it. Ironically, they are saying smokers are not bearing the brunt of the covid symptoms. Something about nicotene possibly blocking the virus symptoms. Seems odd, but nicotene is the natural pesticide to protect the tobacco plant, so maybe?
The French, I think, are doing studies with nicotene patches I hear.
Absolutely no reason to start smoking. I love being a non smoker, and I feel healthier at 50 than I did at 35!

Yes, I read about this. They found that smokers were getting covid less in China and France. Ironically, i'm on the patch and have been for over 8 weeks. No cigarettes since 03/01/20!

Nice work Wisc. Glad to see you back at it. I just kept putting off the next one, and before I knew it I had quite a streak going. I ve not looked back since. Hope you feeling better with no residual effects.

Go for it Erratic!
I've saved tons of money since I've quit.
You can make it happen, cravings will be a thing from the past in a few weeks.

Hi everyone. On day 22 without smoking. Day 32 without drinking (was just a very light drinker but decided to just stop). Did the patch for 12 days and it was too strong. I was going to buy the lower dose, but decided to just go for it. Smoked a pack every other day. Can already tell a major difference in my breathing, sense of smell, and food tastes much better.

Day 26 and noticing appreciable differences each day. Use my inhaler less and have a larger lung capacity for sure. Also can already smell SO much better, even WITH the allergies I have.

Had 26 hours but got frustrated with my insomnia and procrastination so I smoked. I expected my body and motivation to change right away since I was no longer wasting time smoking two packs in 24 hours.

Talking

Hi Oglsby, and NYClifer. Its amazing how fast the benefits of not smoking happen! Great job.

Welcome back to quitting again Erratic. I have saved $4500. US in 11 months. That will be almost 20K in 4 years. Wow

Nice to see you back wiscsober. If I can do it, you can do it.

Keep posting, it really helps!
