Hello, it has been a few days since I checked the forum out. I am celebrating 21 days nicotine free....I even survived a major move this weekend into a new house with no smell of smoke like my apartment was. I truly feel great about this whole quit....This guy and I was discussing how I quit and how he is quitting he spent $15.00 on a book...I spent less on juices and lollipops and used this site daily for the first two weeks, due to the move I could not check out online but, my thoughts were here when that urge to smoke arose. Fortunately, I do not have the cravings like I used to but, when I do I have the tools to fight them!!! My Milage:

It is truly amazing I have 30 days nicotine/smoke free today!!! I am truly amazed this month has been very stressful due to the things I have had to face.I broke up with boyfriend and moved him out, I also moved into a new house, quit my job on my 3rd day of quit, had my car ran into, lost a entertainer that I grew up listening to RIP Michael, attending 12 step meetings in a place where EVERYBODY smokes,not to mention the other little things that I had to just Let Go and Let God just like I did with this One day At A Time I had to let go. I am so glad there is a forum like this because this was also a big help with the stories that other people went through and the experience, strength and hope I recieved Thanks. Tonight as a reward I will be going shopping!!!! Do not know what I will get hopefully for my smoke free home but, I deserve it.I am praying for me and all the other people who want to quit and or stay quit. Together WE can do this.

Hello I know it has been awhile since I last posted however....I am celebrating 90 days today nicotine free!!! I have been really busy with my new home and now I am back to classes I just don't find the time like I used to to post but, this is a day I did not ever think I could achieve. I have had some mighty TEMPTATIONS but, I still did not break down and smoke. Although some days are hard for the most part it is a rewarding journey and hopefully with prayer I can continue my journey. If you think you can't do this YOU CAN....One day at a time and sometimes for me it was one minute at a time, whatever it takes just DO IT!!!

Hello everyone, I am proud to say I have 100 days nicotine free today!!! I did not think i was going to make it, I went from my hometown to a city an hour with a pack of My brand ciggarettes under the seat. I had every intenion of smoking but, through grace I did not, I gave the pack away but, the next day I bummed a smoke put it on my entertainment center and talked with it throughout the day.Was going to smoke when I got back from class and meeting.I did not....WHY? Because when I was at school I had an asthama attack going up the stairs....Funny how a dose of reality will jerk you right up. Needless to say I really needed appreciate my new found freedom. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers because, I need it.

Hello it truly has been a struggle but, Today I have 120 days Nicotine free. I started off cold turkey and with the help of some good friends, bananna candy, and hundreds of lollipos I am still doing this. I do take this one day at a time. I have not ever made it 120 days before I got to 90 days but that was 2 years ago. I know if I stay prayed up and talk about when I want to smoke I have a chance. Thanks for being here for me.

Well, I had quit for 8months and then picked back up on March 1st for really no good reason. Smoked until the 16th and came down with broncohitis then afer 12 days I picked back up but, it has not been the same it just doesn't reel right and now my chest started hurting again. I would really like some support especially from those who quit for months then picked back but, started their quit again. I have been beating myself up over this.But, I am ready to go through this 72hour withdrawal process because, I just lost a friend last Tuesday from Lung Cancer. Any tips, points, words of wisdom, encouragement or anything that you throw my way will be greatly appreciated, Thanks 1:14:54 AM

Hello fellow quitters, I am back again after smoking since March 1st. But, I smoked my last ciggarette at 11:37pm last night and I mean to stay quit one day at a time. I had stopped coming to this forum and I know that it is important for me to stay focused and involved. I got told Tuesday that I needed to quit my right eye was hemorraging around my focal point and fluid was building up but, the doctor asked about smoking and he proceeded to suggest i quit smoking. Well, this is the second doctor for different reasons to tell me to quit so, I have to I did this before for eight months so I know that it is a possibility this life with out ciggarettes. So, again any replies I would greatly appreciate, suggesstions are welcome. Thanks for being here for me My Mileage:

Hello fellow quitters and it is day #2 for me. I am so grateful that the worst part of this journey is almost over with. I am very grateful that this forum is here to express myself on. I have posted on there twice and noone has answered at least here I get feedback. Today earlier it was very hard for me, I was at the store getting ready to go in and buy ciggarettes but, thinking about SSC and the people that rely to me I didn't want to change my quit date AGAIN. Plus, I can't do that especially if I do not try to reach out to others and let them know how I feel. Well, Thanks for being here for me and hopefully I will see you soon. My Mileage:
