I have now passed my 1000 days mark and nearing three years of smoke free. I rarely get craving any more, and my health and lungs have improved so much to a point that I can run 10kms at my own pace 3 times a week. I have also saved over $10k+ easily over these years, as well can handle my emotions in different ways. I have smoked for 10+ years half pack to pack a day, and worked on my quit for 3 years, before I got it correct, which is never another puff ever. My message for all of you who are starting this quit now is never ever give up quitting. Learning to quit is like learning to ride a bicycle. Slips are part of the quit, don't get discouraged when you relapse, just go back to your quit next day and eventually you will learn to quit forever. If it will help your quit smoking then eat as much junk food as possible, watch as many movies, surf the internet, etc. Nothing is as bad as smoking, and losing weight or adjusting your screen time is easier than quitting smoking. Also, you need to work on improving your habits support your quit as some bad habits you developed over the years act as a trigger for your cravings.
