Quitting Smoking Update

Hey BTers!  I figured that now in this period of insanity as we all get revved up for the big sale, it might be a good time to update you as to my progress.  I have been smoke-free for 45 days.  I feel better, I look better, I've saved like $300.  I'm pretty psyched.  I still want a cigarette every day, but the period each day when I'm pining for smoking is getting smaller.  Many days it's just a passing thought.

 

I think this will probably be my last update about this and I just wanted to say thank you BT, I could not have done it without you.

So happy you decided to quit. I love being smoke free and its nice not to have that smell on my kids and in everything I own. It gets easier the longer you go. If you have gotten this far I know you can stay quit...Just imagine that haul you can make with your savings.

That is wonderful Meg82 , my BFF also quit smoking this year, and it does get easier as you've noticed, the hardest part is in the beginning/start. One of the things she mentioned is being able to enjoy smells again, as it made her sense of smell stronger when she quit and the taste of food improved. Major Kudos, you're doing what a lot of other people wish they could do, and hopefully one day will do. <3 :smileyvery-happy:

This is an awesome thing to come back and see!  I know I wondered how you were doing a couple of times during my mini-sabbatical from BT.

You rule!!!!  Congratulations on making such an incredibly difficult but absolutely wonderful decision - it's definitely a massive struggle from what I hear, but you will never ever regret it.  You're giving yourself such a beautiful gift by quitting and I applaud your strength and candor sharing such a journey with us!

YAY!!!! I'm so glad to hear, Meg!!!! Keep it up and I know you're going to be doing even better at this! $300 in savings is so much and I know it'll be put to good use for the holidays!

 

I'm so glad that you FEEL better! So much of the battle is internal and mental, and the fact that you're able to feel good about yourself and this undertaking just reinforces you all the more!

 

Kudos to you!
