I don't see 300 days of not smoking. I see 65 days until I am part of the 6% Club! I can say confidently, I will not smoke today, no matter what. When I started out, I wasn't sure if I would make it or not. I thought positively and told myself I would, but I honestly didn't know.
I don't have anything profound to blog, really. I celebrate everyday I am free. I live by a few catch phrases I learned here and listen to the Elders. They are wise. They are truthful. They are honest. The support from this community is real. I am truly grateful to many - to many to list.
I am FREE - 300 Days, 7,200 Hours, 432,686 Minutes, 25,961,181 Seconds (Give or Take)!!!
Money saved so far: A little over $3,516 (and I am actually putting this money into a savings account for a rainy day).
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 9,014.3
Life regained (in days): 75
Time spent NOT smoking (days): 31
Cravings - I honestly cannot remember the last time I had a craving which is a bit scary.
What keeps me strong is positive self-talk. I tell myself I don't do that anymore! NOPE. SINAO. One step and then another will get you where you want to be. the only way out is through.
Weight Lost since quitting: 31.2 pounds! I am lifting weights and working out 3-4x per week. I lost all of the weight I initially gained and now am losing MORE!
I will make it to the 6% club. One step and then another will take me to where I want to be. The only way out it through. SINAO. NOPE.
