I am 91 days cigarette free and am now on my own. This is the first time I have felt like I could do it. I still have my days when I "miss" smoking but it usually happens when I do something that I haven't done in a while that I used to associate with smoking.

I went to a movie on the weekend for the first time since quitting and I really wanted a cig after we came out - I used to do that - you know that OMG, finally I can have a smoke - moment.

I haven't been taking Champix (that's what it is here) now for 2 weeks. I was having some mood swings I didn't like at the end, so I cut down to one pill a day and then finally just stopped taking them.

I started exercising not because I feared gaining weight, but because this is the best that I have felt in a really long time. I was a smoker for 22 years. Quit once for 1 month and tried again but cheated all the time. I have not cheated in 91 days :o)

I did something this time that not too many would recommend. I kept my pack of cigarettes. The reason - I quit while I still had cigs in the pack. I would have never done that - that was my excuse...."can't quit now, I still have cigarettes." Then I would bum them because "I'm quitting, I don't want to buy a whole pack." Then I would end up buying a pack. I had 17 cigarettes left when I quit.

I really think that I have done it this time!!! Very glad I stumbled across here.
