When you want a smoke just think, "I've gone this far I will wait for the next time".

Your doing good keep it up.

You've gotten through the hardest part. Two things that I found strange when I quit:

o Food did not taste "better", "more vibrant", or anything else. It still tasted good.

o I didn't gain weight. Hope that's the case for you.

Just remember - you've got the chance to have a smoke-free shop. We're all pulling for you.

Way to go Ray!

I just passed 4 years without the evil things, so I feel for ya'. It is without a doubt the very best thing that I've ever done for myself and my family. If you do slip, don't give up, just forgive yourself and get back at it!

Finally the penny dropped.... first with my older daughter and my wife this afternoon and then my two boys this evening when I got in from work.
My younger daughter's not back from work yet but I don't think the boys will have the patience to let her figure it out for herself... they'll be too keen to demand that she quits too.

Thanks everyone for your support it's a great help knowing you're going to hold me to this. :D

Ray

Sounds to me like a "DONE DEAL", Ray. My last one was 547 days ago and I've REALLY felt better every day since then. I smoked for 50 years so I know what you're going through. I'm here to tell you that you will be prouder of this than anything you've ever done. The benefits are immediate and get better every day.
good luck,
don

Smoking cessation timeline - the health benefits over time

In 20 minutes, your blood pressure and pulse rate decrease, and the body temperature of your hands and feet increase.
Carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. At 8 hours, the carbon monoxide level in your blood decreases to normal. With the decrease in carbon monoxide, your blood oxygen level increases to normal.

At 24 hours, your risk of having a heart attack decreases.

At 48 hours, nerve endings start to regrow and the ability to smell and taste is enhanced.

Between 2 weeks and 3 months, your circulation improves, walking becomes easier and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. Phlegm production decreases. Within several months, you have significant improvement in lung function.

In 1 to 9 months, coughs, sinus congestion, fatigue and shortness of breath decrease as you continue to see significant improvement in lung function. Cilia, tiny hair-like structures that move mucus out of the lungs, regain normal function.

In 1 year, risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack is reduced to half that of a smoker.
Between 5 and 15 years after quitting, your risk of having a stroke returns to that of a non-smoker.
In 10 years, your risk of lung cancer drops. Additionally, your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas decrease. Even after a decade of not smoking however, your risk of lung cancer remains higher than in people who have never smoked. Your risk of ulcer also decreases.

In 15 years, your risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack in similar to that of people who have never smoked. The risk of death returns to nearly the level of a non-smoker.
