Thumbs up One Year Today!

Yes, today, I have been nicotine free for ONE YEAR!

In fact, it's been exactly One year, 36 minutes and 0 seconds. That's 14601 cigarettes not smoked, saving $4,015.27. Life saved: 7 weeks, 1 day, 16 hours, 45 minutes.

I focused on behaviors. Changing long and short term behaviors got me here.
It wasn't always easy, but, it is doable. I smoked for 36 years. And I smoked, at my worst, over 3 packs a day! Cigarettes have been my longest relationship! They were always there for me. But, they weren't good for me.

So, today, I'm happy to say that I am really smoke free!

L'Chaim!
(To Life!)

Wonderful Teach!

Ayia, there are some great posts down in the nicotine forum. I remember one I posted about how I used SMART and the nicotine patch.

I slipped but back on the patch wagon...day 5 here

Thanks, everyone!

Here's my tips, http://www.soberrecovery.com/forums/...s-my-quit.html
hope they help you. One change, though. That is:
I am now One year, one day, 23 minutes and 8 seconds smoke free. That's 14640 cigarettes not smoked, saving $4,026.18. Life saved: 7 weeks, 1 day, 20 hours, 0 minutes.

Remember, you can DO this. It's all in the behaviors we choose.
And thanks so much for the support and encouragement you've given me...

Keep the quit and post before you puff!

Shalom!
