Two months, one week, three days, 19 hours, 14 minutes and 12 seconds. 1436 cigarettes not smoked, saving $574.41. Life saved: 4 days, 23 hours, 40 minutes.
After about 23 years or so of smoking.
I did it cold turkey with no drugs patches or anything. It was pure hell for a couple days. But that was it. It got better every day after day three. I know I will forever want and think of them. I am about to celebrate 11 years sober form a severe drug and alcohol problem. I still think if that all them time as well. I assume this will be them same.
The liberation form the binds of addition is truly amazing. although the obsessions still present themselves they are less intrusive in my daily life.
For me, once I wrapped my head around the fact that if I don’t smoke or use I have control over my habit everything had direction and meaning. I had a great reason to quit for MYSELF. I can make a choice to smoke I have control. If I do light up I lose control. It has control over me.
Congradulations to everyone.
You can do it take control over your life. Don’t let a pack of smokes make decisions for you all day. Free your mind to consider other things than the constant call of nicotine.
The best help I got from quitting nicotine was from whyquit.com
I just read info there when I really needed “one”. Thinking about nicotine is different than craving. So reading about the effects and others quitting rely helped.
