Cigarette free for 7 weeks

Well, I've been threatening for years, but I'm finally done. It's been seven weeks since I've had a cigarette and I feel like a totally new person. Lungs clear, sinuses clear, taste buds... tasting more, sense of smell becoming sharper every day. I actually can't even stand the smell of a cigarette now. Just truly got tired of being a slave to it and put it down. I'm vaping as a crutch, but I've weaned the nicotine level down to zero already so that part is at least out of the way. Just wanted to share my triumph real quick. It needed to be done, I'm just glad that certain things led to it happening and I found the strength to stand behind my decision like I did. Thanks for listening to the rant.
Carry on, and see y'all in Kerville

Congrats form another ex-smoker! 8 years for me now and bought myself my first new Harley as my reward when I decided to quit. Best thing I ever did for myself and my family.

Now if I could just give up the drinking, nah

Congrats! Keep busy and you can work your way through it. You are making the right decision and kicking a bad habit that steals your cash and health.

Keep up the good work!
It gets easier as time goes on, you need to quit the vaping too it could cause a relapse. 1/2 of the smoking habit is doing something with your hands and vaping is still keeping that part of the habit going.
I was a slave to nicotine (2 to 3 packs a day) and quit 11 1/2 years ago cold turkey and it is the best thing I ever did.
