Quit Smoking!!

I've stopped actively checking this Tracker   I haven't had a cigarrette in over a month and I barely think about them.  When I do think about them, I don't miss them.

I don't feel like I'm in any danger of reverting to cigarrettes.  For whatever reason my resolve to quit stuck this time; and I could not be happier.  :)

I know that my organs still have a long way to go to fully recover from the damage I've done to them with the amount of smoking over the years but, in just over a month, my lungs already feel so clean, not to mention my now heightened sense of taste and smell! I can also feel a big difference in my circulation; I mean to say that I can actually consciously feel the blood flow in my veins.  Is that normal? I don't know; but definitely neat!

This should probably be my last journal for this tracker.  

I'm a non smoker now.  I don't need to explain it any further than that or give that notion any further attention I think. :)

Over it

I'm so over cigarrettes that I've completely forgotten about this tracker for the last few days.

I can count on one hand how many times I've thought about having a cigarrette this week, and those times were very very mild.

The strangle-hold is gone.  I'm not a smoker any more.  :)

quit smoking

..I think that, at this point; one day away from 4 weeks since the day I quit smoking; and very little withdrawl symptoms that have manifested since then; I can safely and with confidence declare I am no longer addicted to cigarettes. :P
Even when I think about them, I don't miss them.

Almost 3 weeks

Jun 03, 2011 - 0 comments

One day shy of a full 3 weeks of not smoking...... and I can't believe how easy it's been!

There is a very noticeable difference in my health now. My breathing, sense of smell, energy & endurance levels have all improved, just to mention a few of the changes.  

Quittting has definitely opened the door to a completely new lifestyle.  I'm finding I have more energy than I know what to do with and so inevitably I've been searching for ways to burn off the access reserves.  Anything to keep happily busy.

Running seems easier & easier each time I go which I'm very pleased with!  With any luck I'll be able to find (or form) a group to go on hikes with this summer and paintball is always in the back of my mind.  

This is the best I've felt in years!  And I'm only getting started!
