On tomorrow Friday, I will celebrate NINE MONTHS of being smoke-free. I thank God for giving me the strength and power for being able to accomplish this. I would have never in a million years imagined that I would have had the will power or stamina to quit. This has shown me that I can do all things through christ who strengthens me. It has not been easy, in fact, this is by far the most difficult thing I have ever done. But, It is done..........I AM A NON-SMOKER. I now plan to use this strength and lose some of this smoke-free weight gain.
Thanks everyone for all your encouragement and support!
I have been quit for 8 Months, 4 Weeks, 13 hours, 51 minutes and 59 seconds (271 days). I have saved $760.41 by not smoking 5,431 cigarettes. I have saved 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 20 hours and 35 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 6/16/2006 6:00 PM
Congrats Patch on being nine months nico-free!! I can't wait until I get there. I agree, once you have accomplished this, it feels like you can do anything!! It does take a lot of willpower and self-control and digging deep inside to find yourself to make it happen, but it did happen and we are all here to talk about it.
