    Hi Friends, I have reached my 900 days smoke free now!! Closing in on the 3 years mark. :)  I saved over $8,000 just in smoke in these 900 days.  I used to smoke half pack to a pack a day prior to my last quit. I get absolutely no cravings now. I am now living the normal life as a non-smoker, and no longer smell like a cigarette the whole day.  We can do this!!! Just keep trying.

    Jeyan,

    Congrats on 900 days being a non-smoker! I just passed 90 days and am feeling proud of that, at 900 days you must be thrilled to be living the good life. 

    You know, posts of yours, and some of the other long-time 'non'smokers', were and are a real incentive and motivator for me. I always thought that if your did it and don't miss or crave smoking, then I can do it too. 

    Now - go out there and plan a real big celebration for 3 years and let us all know how it goes.

    jeyan,

    Good for you! I hope that you have some great plans for these funds, if not to watch your savings grow.

    Here's to 900 more days.

    turningpoint, when I stopped smoking - it was hard as hell. So the only thing that helped me to stay "alive" in that situation is home exercises. I mean physical workout. I bought an inversion table and it is one of the best purchases I've ever done.

    Hi Jenna, I enjoyed being a non smoker, not smelling like a cigarette the whole day, being free of addiction, not having to lie to loved ones that I didn't smoke when I did, health improvements, etc. :)  Quitting gave me so much confidence, that I slowly learned to run 10ks at my own pace, smoothing I always though I could never do even when I was in the prime of my shape in the teens and the early 20's when I didn't smoke.

    Hi jeyan, 

    I love how you keep track of being smoke, 1000 days being smoke free coming up! 
    Great to hear how quitting smoking is giving you the confidence to do other great things, such as a 10 km!
    Way to go!!
