I am FREE - 90 Days, 2,168 Hours, 130,092 Minutes, 7,805,550 Seconds (Give or Take)!!!
My circulation should be greatly improved. The same is true for the texture and color of my gums.
Any coughing and wheezing has improved by roughly 65% so far. The weird thing is that I never really had ANY coughing and my lungs sounded great with no wheezing!
Money saved so far: A little over $1,057 (and I am actually putting this money into a savings account for a rainy day).
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 2,710
Life regained (in days): 22
Time spent NOT smoking (days): 9
Cravings - I haven't really had any, but know to watch out for them.
I have had more habitual thoughts recently and it gets bad after meals, when I feel like I need to get away from a situation, or after I worked very hard at something and want to "reward" myself. What keeps me strong is positive self-talk. I tell myself I don't do that anymore! I don't EVER want to go back to Day ONE! I don't ever want to lose all of these days WON I have built up and start over! It really does work. The thing is, these are passing thoughts and don't occupy too much of my time, but when they hit, I am not caught off-guard per se, but bothered these thoughts even enter my head.
Weight Lost since quitting: NONE! I got my eating back on track and have begun to exercise more.
