I am a nonsmoker. Presenting #151 Mew. See you around.
First morning coffee without a cigarette in a long long time.
First time in 20 years I’ve been able to say this to a girl. Our date is on Saturday!
My reason for quitting arrived yesterday. My heart is full and my lungs are healthy!
It's been 1 year smoke free for me. My smoke free app notified me yesterday about the anniversary and to fill in my cravings, and I realized I haven't had one in months. I promise you that it gets better so fast, soon it won't even register you quit. Cheers and see you around -The Pokemon Guy.
Guys, it's been two whole years!!
First time on a treadmill since quitting smoking almost 34 days ago
Its been about 3 weeks so far. Its nice out so i brought my dog outside to sit with me instead of smoking. Cheers to new routines!
Repost from r/funny. Should really be here
Quitting smoking is all about being prepared for the unpredictable. Like, say for instance one of your company's top salesman gets himself hacked and you spend your whole Friday doing forensics reports to make sure everything's safe. STRESS! Didn't smoke! Presenting #149 Dragonite. See you tomorrow.
For all of you on the edge, ready to quit but not ready to quit today, you are in the right place. We've all been there. We all know the anxiety of knowing you're about to quit, but not yet. Get rid of that anxiety and just stop smoking. You can do it! Presenting #124 Jynx. See you tomorrow.
Early last year I had a surgery for my thyroid. I couldn't smoke for two weeks while I was laid up and my mouth & neck were recovering. I had two weeks under my belt. I couldn't wait to smoke again, and I did. It's all in your head. You have to want to quit. Presenting #128 Tauros. See you tomorrow.
Subconsiously a smoker always wants to quit. When a smoker taunts you or offers to bum you one, or calls you a quitter sarcastically or whatever, remember: You are not jealous of them. They are jealous of you. Stay strong. Fuck the haters. Presenting #105 Marowak. See you tomorrow.
I've been trying to intentionally improve my personal discipline. Always struggled with it. Quitting smoking has been a huge boost to my self-esteem, because I said I would and I stuck to it. I'm very proud of my progress in developing discipline. Presenting #132 Ditto. See you tomorrow.
Realized I already cracked the 200-day mark. When I first started I counted the days religiously. I always knew how long it had been since my last smoke. Now I pass milestones without even so much as an afterthought. You will too, if you keep at it. Presenting #129 Magikarp. See you tomorrow.
If you are subscribed to this subreddit but still smoke, it's okay. Quit when you're ready. We all understand. We get it. But I urge you to consider that you will never be fully ready and you should just do it. Go for it! Join us! Rip the Band-Aid off! Presenting #055 Golduck. See you tomorrow.
I went to a karaoke bar while I was visiting Milwaukee. My voice has never been in better shape than it is now. Quitting smoking made me able to impress some random Milwaukeeans on a random Tuesday night. It's the little things. Presenting #114 Tangela. See you tomorrow.
Quitting smoking is about making a promise to yourself and then staying accountable. Follow through every day, day after day, even when what you're doing seems ridiculous in the moment. See through those moments. Stay accountable. Get to your end goal. Presenting #150 Mewtwo. See you tomorrow.
My grandpa picked up smoking back in Vietnam, but gave it up after starting to have kids. I found an old picture of him smoking and he said Y'know there's a lot of old people, and there's a lot of smokers, but there's not a lot of old smokers. Presenting #138 Omanyte. See you tomorrow.
Storytime: A friend of mine quit at 25. Got married, kids, etc. Bought a new house at 33. Family was at the new place while he packed up his old bedroom. An unopened pack of his old cigarettes popped out. He told me he sat and stared at it for 30 minutes. Presenting #106 Hitmonlee. See you tomorrow.
My wife told me this morning that there have been noticeable and significant improvements to my snoring at night since I quit smoking. Presenting #096 Drowzee. See you tomorrow.
I keep my eyes open for experiences that feel different as a nonsmoker. Most things are the same or mildly different. Some things are way, way different, like concerts. I found a new one: the beach. The beach is much nicer as a nonsmoker. Like, much nicer. Presenting #123 Scyther. See you tomorrow.
Routines are everything. Don't get me wrong, I know addiction is multi-faceted (chemical, mental, etc), but part of why quitting is hard is you have to break routine. Once you're out and have a new routine, it's much easier. Presenting #125 Electabuzz. See you tomorrow.
Had a good weekend. Went to a bonfire. Got a little diluted. Dealt with family stuff. Lawn work. Relaxing. Reading. All of this used to mean I was smoking. Not anymore. Came into work Tuesday with a clear throat. Long weekends are better as a nonsmoker. Presenting #137 Porygon. See you tomorrow.
If you're caught in a cycle of failed quit after failed quit like I was, try quitting again, but this time change your script. Change I can't have that to I don't do that. Change I'm quitting smoking to I am a nonsmoker. It really helps a lot. Presenting #145 Zapdos. See you tomorrow.
On January 31, 2019 at 5:30 PM EST (roughly three hours from now), I will be clean of cigarettes for 100 days. 100 days! What a milestone! I feel so good about my quit. I finally did it! Or, more accurately, am doing it! Presenting #065 Alakazam. See you tomorrow.
My fiancée got me a mini cake to celebrate 30 days smoke free!
I've said it before and I'll say it again, you miss stuff as a smoker, especially at concerts. Went to see Pixies and Weezer last night. The smokers in my group went out and missed the encore of Take On Me and Say It Ain't So. What a stupid addiction. Presenting #098 Krabby. See you tomorrow.
Don't think that you will resent or regret quitting. It's a dirty lie that the nicotine demon tells you. If you want to quit, and truly want it for yourself, then you won't resent or regret it. The opposite, actually. I promise it's great once you're out. Presenting #076 Golem. See you tomorrow.
My quit date just happened to roughly coincide with me purchasing a new vehicle. This is the first car I've ever had that legitimately smells great inside. Also the first car I've owned where the AC works, so, yeah. Upgrades! Presenting #093 Haunter. See you tomorrow.
Had two friends over last night to watch a movie. All three of us used to smoke. All three of us quit. We reveled in that a bit. We have to develop a completely different leaving-from-hanging-out ritual. We no longer go outside and smoke then say goodbye. Presenting #102 Exeggcute. See you tomorrow.
It's important to not forget why you're quitting. Addiction plays by different rules, tries to make you forget why you're quitting to try and make you fill a need you don't really have. Remember why you quit in those moments. Say it out loud if you have to. Presenting #118 Goldeen. See you tomorrow.
Pack a day smoker...I’ve been waiting for this day for many years, I’ve wanted this for so long!
I am happy with the decision to quit smoking. When you're only a few days/weeks into a quit, then you don't feel happy. You feel miserable about it. I'm here to tell you that for me, 88 days in, I am happy I made that decision. Quit now, and you will too. Presenting #059 Arcanine. See you tomorrow.
This is how much food you can get for the cost of a pack of cigarettes in Australia. [x-post /r/pics]
I only have 16 left before I'm done. For those of you who haven't quit yet, there is never an ideal time to quit. The smoker's brain will find any way to hang on. If you're here then you at least want to quit. Examine your reasons! Then quit today! Presenting #135 Jolteon. See you tomorrow.
Whenever I see someone smoking on TV or in a movie, I used to want one immediately. Sometimes even pause it to go outside and have one. I watched Chernobyl this weekend. Everyone smokes in it. Didn't even phase me. Movies and TV are better as a nonsmoker. Presenting #140 Kabuto. See you tomorrow.
I started doing some math and I figure this is probably the 7th or 8th time I quit. Maybe more, but it's around there. I am clean over 100 days now. This time it's permanent. If you're worried about relapse, get back on. You can do it! Let nothing stop you! Presenting #068 Machamp. See you tomorrow.
Smoking has been a crutch for me for so long that I'm not sure how to deal with stress now in a healthy way. I just had a two hour meeting with an absolute moron who has no idea what he's talking about. I want to smoke, but I won't. Cigs don't help. Presenting #107 Hitmonchan. See you tomorrow.
Damn right I didn’t smoke those 500 cigarettes
I had to keep myself from feeling guilty that previous quits didn't stick in order to quit smoking for good. Your last quit didn't work, so might as well not quit today. Don't let the cigarette lie to you like that. Quit smoking now! You can do it! Presenting #101 Electrode. See you tomorrow.
I remember the first time I buzzed from cigarettes. I remember thinking Do people actually like this? This is pretty unpleasant. I don't want to feel like this. I kept going. I chased an ever more elusive unpleasant buzz for 15 years. Man, fuck cigarettes. Presenting #086 Seel. See you tomorrow.
Made me think of you guys. Stay strong out there!
I added a little something to today's drawing to remind myself why I'm doing this. Or, to be more precise, something I'm not doing anymore now that I quit smoking. Presenting #109 Koffing. See you Monday.
When you first start your quit, there's good days and bad days. Then you middle out, and there's more good than bad. Then eventually it gets to a point where cravings are no longer measured in good or bad, and days are just days. Become a nonsmoker! Presenting #074 Geodude. See you tomorrow.
I got taunted again by my smoker coworkers as I walked by the pit during break time. That's a really shitty thing to do. If you're still smoking, first of all, quit. But second of all, don't taunt the ones who did quit. Really not nice. Presenting #029 Nidoran. See you tomorrow.
Don't listen to the lies your body tells you. You don't need nicotine. You don't need it. It tells you Hey, I need this to concentrate. or Hey, I need this to enjoy myself. Those are lies. Don't deceive yourself anymore. Truth is you can do it. Believe. Presenting #053 Persian. See you tomorrow.
The smoker's pit at my work is between the entrance and my parking spot. I have to pass it every day at clock in and clock out. I kind of miss that space, even if it was where I went to put poison in my body. I notice it smells bad now, though. Presenting #014 Kakuna. See you tomorrow.
From overweight alcoholic smoker to healthy sober non-smoker in 3.5 years. Not bad.
When I first quit, I got the dreams really bad. They're a very common side effect of quitting. I dreaded them. I had one this past week, and instead of being something I dreaded, it was more of a huh, that was weird then back to sleep kind of moment. Presenting #122 Mr. Mime. See you tomorrow.
I turn 25 tomorrow, been smoking since i was 15 and a pack a day for almost 5 years. Best birthday present I can give myself is the rest of my life without this addiction. Here's to the beginning of my journey.
Time for my annual check-in. I owe a lot of it to this community. If you’re brand new, keep the faith! It gets way easier, I swear!
I waited so much longer to quit than I actually should have. Now I'm over two weeks in and I'm starting to feel good. I'm having less and less of the bad cravings every day. I promise it gets better. Stop now, if you haven't yet. Presenting #012 Butterfree. See you tomorrow.
This morning I got this tremendous surge of joy when I realized I was starting the legendaries. Not because of the drawing itself, but because when I started they seemed so far away. I finally did it. I finally quit smoking for good. Feels good, man. Presenting #144 Articuno. See you Monday.
Congratulations to everyone who made it through the weekend without smoking. Family celebrations like Easter can be really hard for some of us. 4/20 celebrations without smoking could be even harder for some others. Don't let'm break you! Presenting #117 Seadra. See you tomorrow.
Some days are easier than others. Some days you get bad news and all you want to do is go smoke. I can't wait until my body stops asking for nicotine as a response to everything. Celebrating? Go smoke! Grieving? Go smoke! Bored? Go smoke! Presenting #015 Beedrill. See you tomorrow.
This Christmas I asked Santa for better lung capacity, a longer lifespan, money savings, better skin complexion, better senses of taste and smell, a cleaner mouth, a better scent, and a stronger immune system. Stay strong over the holidays! Presenting #040 Wigglytuff. See you Wednesday.
Made a choice a year ago to not stop for cigarettes on the way to work and kept rolling with it
Got another package of coupons in the mail, this time from Camel. Even when I was smoking, I knew tobacco companies were evil. Pop culture has even lampooned how evil they are in South Park and Family Guy, etc. It's all true. Fuck big tobacco. Presenting #095 Onix. See you tomorrow.
I dream about smoking almost every night. When I wake up I feel so dejected and ashamed that I started smoking again. Woke up crying once. What will I tell my wife? All those days of torture for nothing! I can't believe I... wait... I dreamt that. Nevermind. Presenting #026 Raichu. See you tomorrow.
Here we go...
I don't feel particularly strong or bold right now. I feel like garbage. I know I'm making the right choice, but I'm dealing with a particularly stressful situation right now and all I want to do is smoke. Just being honest. Presenting #007 Squirtle. Banana for scale. See you tomorrow.
I randomly found a lighter today in the bottom of a bag of old tea stuff. Must have put it there years ago. I'm guessing that now that I'm a non-smoker all my years of disappearing lighters as a smoker are going to find their way back to me. I threw it away. Presenting #042 Golbat. See you tomorrow.
Hit a huge milestone this morning
While I'm happy I quit, I feel bad about how many times I've failed before. How many failed New Year's resolutions of this year will be the one I quit. I solemnly promise myself that I will never, ever backslide again. Totally 100% done with cigarettes. Presenting #038 Ninetales. See you tomorrow.
Got a big packet of coupons from Marlboro in the mail today. Could've been random, but I wonder how their marketing departments work. Do they have some way to tell if someone quit? Target ads at demographics more likely to quit? Anyway, fuck Philip Morris. Presenting #094 Gengar. See you on Monday.
I haven't had a full calendar year smoke-free since 2003, probably. Here's to 2019 being the one. I hope you're coming with me. Presenting #044 Gloom. See you next year.
I wish I could go back in time and slap that first cigarette out of my mouth. What was I thinking? Presenting #054 Psyduck. See you tomorrow.
Reason #1 why drawing pokemon on your break is objectively better than smoking on your break: My wife does not complain of me smelling like Pokemon when I get home. Presenting #010 Caterpie. See you tomorrow.
My dad smoked all through my childhood and teens. Salem Green labels, I still remember his boxes. He quit in his 50's and switched to gum. Still chews the gum. He nagged me forever to quit. I still haven't told him. Presenting #115 Kangaskhan. See you tomorrow.
I smoked for 30+ years and reached my 2-year milestone, today.
It's not fucking fair. Today was supposed to be a happy day. I've been smoke free long enough to make it to the franchise mascot. Instead I have a shit day. Stress. Emergencies. I am ACHING for a cigarette. Happy I quit. But fucking damn it all sometimes. Presenting #025 Pikachu. See you tomorrow.
Something I didn't expect: I experience some anxiety at gas stations. I've filled up a few times now, and when I'm at the gas pump my inner monologue is like Don't go in. Don't go in. Don't go in. It's just a gas station, inner voice. Shut up, I'm fine. Presenting #035 Clefairy. See you tomorrow.
A whole fucking year.
I did it 😊
Keep it up!
Last night I went outside with some friends while they smoked. When I first quit, I specifically avoided doing that because holding myself back from asking for one (and knowing they'd oblige) was torture. Now it's no big deal. I mean, whatever, go ahead. Presenting #148 Dragonair. See you tomorrow.
I'm taking my first vacation since becoming a nonsmoker. My wife and I are celebrating some stuff by roadtripping to Texas and seeing the sights along the way. I promise I'll be back, but I'm taking a little break. Stay strong! Not one more puff! Presenting #121 Starmie. See you in 10 days!
I wrote myself a note
I passed by the butt bucket of the smoker's pit today on my way into work. The smell was pretty rank, but also seeing all the discarded butts and crinkled up empty packs in there made me realize just how many cigarettes I haven't had since quitting. Presenting #113 Chansey. See you tomorrow.
I had a really strong craving just now. Instead of smoking, I made this.
I held back quitting for so long because I was afraid of the suckiness of it all. I wish I could go back in time to when I first started my quit and tell myself Dude, trust me, it sucks when you first quit but it gets better so quickly. Presenting #142 Aerodactyl. See you tomorrow.
I work a stressful job. If I don't get up and leave to smoke, then I tend to keep working. I need something to do to force me to take a break. I have a markerboard and 16 colors. I'm a terrible artist. Presenting #001 Bulbasaur. See you tomorrow.
Party tonight at a friends house. My friends there will be smokers. I hope my friends are supportive, at least more supportive than my coworker smokers. Oh you quit? Nobody likes a quitter! So tired of hearing that. I'll be drinking. I'll stay strong. Presenting #013 Weedle. See you Monday.
I had the thought this weekend. You know the one. Wife is gone. Cash in pocket, no traceable way to have anyone know the purchase. Just have one, maybe a few? No one would know. I could get away with it and quit later! Nope. Staying strong. Stupid thoughts. Presenting #048 Venonat. See you tomorrow.
I was on a conference call and someone who I work with exclusively over the phone told me I sounded healthier and my voice was less harsh. I haven't personally noticed any change in my voice, but apparently others have and that was a big lift for me today! Presenting #071 Victreebel. See you Monday.
5 MONTHS! I need a pat on the back 🥺
Shits going well
I haven't had a cigarette in over a week now. Charizard seems appropriate, it's how my spirit feels. Never one more puff, no matter what. Presenting #006 Charizard. See you tomorrow.
I can feel myself dying but i still cant stop. I painted that.
I honestly can't remember the last time that I coughed. Presenting #061 Poliwhirl. See you tomorrow.
Never thought I'd make it here!
Today I was in a stressful meeting to discuss some heated things. My boss was also there. He asked me if I was smoking again because it seemed like I was keeping a cool head when normally I'd be stressed out and pacing. Nope! Just normal coping skills! Yay! Presenting #119 Seaking. See you tomorrow.
Quitting smoking is tough, but it's as tough an opponent as you make it. If you go in thinking you're gonna lose, then you're gonna lose. Quit smoking with an attitude of I got this. It will get you a long ways. If you get knocked down, then get back up! Presenting #130 Gyarados. See you tomorrow.
I've been saving the money that I would have otherwise been literally lighting on fire and I bought a mini fridge for my office. Is this post sexy and inspiring quitting advice? No. Is it exciting as all hell for me? You bet. Presenting #147 Dratini. See you tomorrow.
I'm traveling for a work conference. Traveling never stopped my smoking habit, so it won't stop my drawing habit either. Drove 6 hours with no smokes today. That's a first. Presenting #111 Rhyhorn. See you tomorrow.
My singing voice has improved dramatically in both reduced rasp/horseness and increased breath capacity. If you sing in any way whatsoever: for fun, a band, for church, in your car or shower, whatever - quitting smoking will have a major positive affect. Presenting #084 Doduo. See you Monday.
Halfway. Don't give up! Get free of your nicotine demon. Being a non-smoker rocks! Presenting #075 Graveler. See you tomorrow.
Remember when I said Not one more puff, no matter what? Turns out there's an exception to my rule. There's one puff I will allow. Presenting #039 Jigglypuff. See you Monday.
Went to an Eve 6 concert last night. Heard every song for both openers and never lost my front spot because I never left to have a cigarette. People were stealth smoking/vaping trying to dodge the staff's eyesight. Concerts are better for non-smokers! Presenting #031 Nidoqueen. See you Monday.
If you're struggling, remember to focus on the good things happening. The bad stuff is temporary, but the good stuff lasts the rest of your life. Getting rid of your nicotine demon is absolutely worth it! Starve the bastard out! Presenting #088 Grimer. See you tomorrow.
Your determination has to be steel. Do whatever you have to do to quit smoking. Cold turkey, patch, gum, hypnosis, whatever. Any of it is better than smoking cigarettes. Don't cut back. That's a lie. Stop! Let no one judge you, do what you gotta do to. Presenting #097 Hypno. See you tomorrow.
Surviving the COVID19 outbreak. Self-quarentine and nicotine gum. Protect your lungs, people. Stay safe.
I took a 3 hour drive today starting at 4 AM with Tim. At our destination, Tim gets out and lights one up, then offers me one (my brand). The words out of my mouth were a polite no thanks but in my head it was more along the lines of FUUUUUUUCK. Hard one. Presenting #021 Spearow. See you Friday.
I’ve been smoking for 10 years and can never commit to quitting. I found this sub recently and followed the Pokémon guy saga and was very inspired by it and all of you, Coincidentally, Gen 3 is my favorite - so, here’s to day one and #252: Treecko.
My 41st bday gift I started making on my 40th birthday.
If you haven't yet cleaned your house since quitting, I fully recommend it. Launder everything to get rid of the smell of smoke. Vacuum all your rooms. Get a carpet cleaner if you can. Change your sheets. Clean your home like you're cleaning your lungs. Presenting #134 Vaporeon. See you tomorrow.
I can’t remember how many times i’ve tried to quit smoking and i relapsed i don’t know how many times. Never thought i’d have seen this. I feel proud of myself today.
Social drinking was always my relapse.
I have a cold now, and I am relieved I don't have to find a way to keep smoking during it. I used to switch to menthols during colds, not because it was pleasant, but because it irritated my throat less. What a stupid, stupid addiction. Not one more puff! Presenting #100 Voltorb. See you tomorrow.
Today makes 8 years since I’ve smoked a cigarette!
6 months 🥺 it’s the longest i’ve gone ever! i feel so proud
I grilled out this weekend. Grilling is another one of those hidden triggers where I was in the middle of it and realized Hey, I used to smoke while I was doing this. I didn't have an urge or a craving, just a little reminder that I don't do that anymore. Presenting #127 Pinsir. See you tomorrow.
I gotta be honest, I miss having an automatic, socially acceptable way to deal with stress right away after getting into a stressful situation. In reality I know smoking didn't really help my stress level, but I haven't replaced that yet and I kinda miss it. Presenting #085 Dodrio. See you tomorrow.
Almost two months ago I got in a car with my brother and he yelled fuck you! You stink! He got on my ass about quitting more than anyone else. I haven't felt this good in years.
I was a closet smoker for 10 years and don’t really have anyone else to celebrate this with because I always tried hiding the fact that I was a smoker!
I'm officially two weeks quit. I'm transitioning from the old smoker me to the new smoke-free me. A transitionary period much like a cocoon. My willpower used HARDEN, but it failed! My willpower can't go any higher! Presenting #011 Metapod. See you tomorrow.
Back to my office today after a nice long solo drive. I stopped at several gas stations for the trip for fuel and only fuel. Never once went in. Quitting smoking might also save me some snacking $$ as well because I'm never in convenience stores anymore. Presenting #051 Dugtrio. See you tomorrow.
Don't let your guard down for new triggers to pop up. I just finished a very long, very difficult project and just as I was appreciating my work I heard a little voice say Let's go outside for a job-well-done cigarette! Nice try nicotine demon, but no. Presenting #099 Kingler. See you Monday.
Don't confuse simple and easy. Quitting smoking is simple. All you gotta do is not smoke anymore. Very simple. But just because something is simple doesn't mean it's easy. Muscle through the suck! It goes by quickly! So, so quickly, I promise! You got this! Presenting #120 Staryu. See you tomorrow.
I'm at the point where I'm getting comfortable with not smoking. That's a weird thing to say, but it's true. It doesn't bug me to see people smoking and me being jeolous of them because they can and I can't. It's just a thing. I am a non smoker. Presenting #046 Paras. See you tomorrow.
A side effect I wasn't expecting, a drop in anxiety. If I cough or feel a pain in my chest, my brain doesn't immediately go It's cancer! Way to go, dumbass, you knew smoking gives cancer and you kept smoking anyways! Nope. I'm feeling good! Presenting #070 Weepinbell. See you tomorrow.
The only person telling you that you can't quit is yourself. You have one person saying you can't do it. So many others are saying you can. It's not impossible. There have been successful quitters, it is something that is totally possible. You can do it! Presenting #081 Magnemite. See you tomorrow.
I smoked my first cigarette when I was 12, and I smoked until I was 31. Done.
I have a couple flights of stairs I have to go up and down for work. I gotta tell you, since I quit smoking I can climb stairs like a motherfucker. Presenting #116 Horsea. See you Monday.
After a pack and a half for 15 years, my pack was empty, and I just decided I was done. My previous longest break was a 14 hour flight. I’m actually proud of myself for once.
Ran a race 5 km yesterday! 4 months smoke-free! I needed medical paper to run, so nice telling your doctor that you don’t smoke.❤️ I believe you can do it too! There are so many things you can do. You won’t regret quitting.
I'm drawing Pokemon during my work breaks and documenting my quit using the app Smoke Free. When I look back at my charted cravings and see that huge spike, I will go ah, yes I remember Squirtle day. Don't stop. You'll get past it. Presenting #008 Wartortle. See you on Monday.
I was asked to keep posting here, so I'll be here as long as you'll have me. Presenting #004 Charmander. Pokemon dude is still running strong!
I went through some crunch-time stress today for this project I'm working on, and I didn't once think that I couldn't concentrate until I went and smoked. I mean, sure, I had an urge or two, but never did I think I couldn't function without. Progress. Presenting #050 Diglett. See you tomorrow.
i’m 20 years old, been smoking heavily since i was 16. i’m tired of the smell, i’m tired of spending all my money, i’m tired of feeling sleepy all day. so please wish me luck i really need it!
Smoking is largely a social thing, too. You want to go out and smoke with your friends. Well, I don't smoke anymore. If you're quitting I hope it helps to know that I will also not smoke with you today. We're social non-smokers together you and me. Presenting #056 Mankey. See you tomorrow.
I haven't smoked in over 20 weeks. I used to think it would be impossible, but I'm very much here. I have no advice besides that I'm happy I quit and the time span is so short before quitting starts being great instead of miserable. Presenting #092 Gastly. See you tomorrow.
6 months smoke free after 15 years of heavy smoking!
Longtime lurker on this sub, slowly and quietly making progress. A few days left for a year but it’s my cake day. You can do it too. After 7 years I finally had enough.

I want to see you, dad. But I’m not ready to use these to get there. This is for you ♥️
I'm working on it again. All of my friends/coworkers are never smokers who don't get why I just can't stop. I'd love some congrats from folks who know how hard this is.
Quit smoking 3 months ago. I told myself I’d use the money I saved to adopt a rescue pup. She’s finally here! Wanting to give her the most active and adventure-filled life possible is the best reminder to never go back.
I quit smoking in January, wasn't a runner until August and today I've done my first 10 km race!
Along with quitting cigarettes for good, I also quit alcohol for Lent. Never had addiction problems with alcohol, but my success with quitting cigarettes has emboldened me to see what it's like to not have any chemical help for a while. Except caffeine... Presenting #103 Exeggutor. See you tomorrow.
And it’s a year!!!! After 34+years of literally chain smoking -2.5 packs a day when I quit cold turkey! 15.4.2019 -15.4.2020 - a year of crazy stress times and yet it happened #kickedthebutt! 🚭💃🏻
Happy New Year!
