Little over 7 years. No interest in smoking. I see people and feel sad for them. Its a shame we ever did this but a guess it had its time. So glad I got some friends on buddy book from here and got to squeeze a few chicks in person. The eggs are a good group.

 

We are a weird group and when I check in there is always another weirdo who joined. Bunch of window lickers who common thread is ending something stupid we all did. Thank goodness there isn't groups for my other habits. There probably is but I'm not looking 

 

Keep marching, head forward and take one step at a time. Don't look too far ahead and enjoy the process. Embrace the suk.

It is so good to see that Bakon has a 7 years quit.

 

We quit at aproximately the same time. My feelings about smoking at 7 years quit are the same as his: "No interest in smoking, and I feel sorry for people who continue to smoke".

 

If you are still smoking and reading this thread, remember the title of Bakon´s thread: "Starting now....."

 

It is never impossible to quit smoking, and you can start RIGHT NOW.

Eight years----finally the group remembered my quit date and I almost didnt. Someone on buddybook has quit date a week ago and reminded me. SO I have no desire, dont miss it, but dont see it as much anymore either. Used to hate the smell, still do. Can spot a grey walker-the color of skin of smokers, about 50 yards away.

 

As for benefits ---all of them are work the effort. Smell, taste, teeth, lungs, and even being heavier. Just more of me to love. 

 

Hope all my quit buddies are good. See yinz around....

Find your Why. Why do you want to quit? If you're not sure, keep digging, keep asking. 

Seven years, I'm looking forward to being here to celebrate it. First I have to celebrate years 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 

At least I'm at 1 year and counting.  :)

Hugs to you all

Excellent thread @bakon! Really brought those first couple of months of my own quit to mind. You have a solid quit. This thread has probably helped and will help so many newbies! I sure hope they find it and read it. Thank you for your diligence in logging your journey. 🤗

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
