Cool Two Weeks Smoke-Free

Today marks my two-week smoke-free anniversary.

I realize that two weeks is miniscule in the broad spectrum of the spice/time continuum, but going two weeks without a cigarette is a major victory for me.

Although I craved cigarettes a few times yesterday, and this morning -- oddly enough -- I'm still hanging tough.

Re: Two Weeks Smoke-Free

Congratulations Bullwinkle! 2 weeks is awesome! Never let anyone tell you it's "only" two weeks, it's an incredible achievment!!! Keep up the good work...


I have 6 months and it is very very hard to do. I quit drinking cold turkey but it's the smoking that is difficult. How can something so bad for you be so difficult to stop??

Way to go, Bullwinkles!!

Doesn't matter if it's "only" 2 weeks.....it's wonderful considering you were/are very addicted. 2 weeks here and 2 weeks there, and before you know it, you'll have 2 months...2 years,...etc.

I never thought I'd make it to the 1st month, and now it's been over 3 years!! You be here too in 3 years, ya hear me lady?!! I know you're trying to take it only, "one day at a time"...but I also know your goal is to quit permanently....and I think you will!!

Keep it up!! And good luck!
best wishes,
Deda

Re: Two Weeks Smoke-Free

Thanks for the High-Fives, everyone! It means a lot!

Pidy - to answer your questions, I am using the patch, started smoking at age 24 and I'm now 45. I stopped smoking for two years once about 20 years ago, but have smoked a pack a day every day since then.

Today makes 17 days smoke-free, folks. YAY!
