Congratulations on both your interest and efforts to quit using nicotine. Stopping the use of nicotine for me has been the start of the best parts of my life. It is wonderful not to have to think about when I can/can't smoke, where I can/can't smoke, or how many I will get to smoke. How do I smell? How's my breath? Do I need to wash my hands? And do I have any gum? Are questions I no longer give a thought to because of a smoking habit. Wheezing at night, shortness of breath and low energy are health problem alarms I no longer have. For me I have answered those alarms by quitting.
I was a pack a day user for 26 yrs. My quit is extremely valuable to me. It is both the goal and the prize. It is worth my every effort. I realized nicotine use is a choice. I choose to only not use it.
I have been quit 3 Months, 2 Weeks, 22 hours, 20 minutes and 48 seconds. I have not smoked 2,118 cigarettes (that's allot a smoke!). I have saved 1 Week, 8 hours and 30 minutes of my life. I WILL N.T.A.P. THERE CAN NEVER BE ONLY ONE!
