About Me


Journal Archives

On January 25th, I will be smoke free for two years.

For a woman who would smoke and swim at the same time, this is quite a triumph for me.

I went cold turkey when I came down with a cold and never looked back. I never wanted to experience withdrawal ever again. I had no idea that the triggers would be the most difficult obstacle to overcome. Two years in, I don't even think about smoking, but I do dream that I've relapsed, much to my horror. I still get a brief "hello old friend" tingle when I smell a small amount of smoke on the wind, but I don't care for it at all when I'm in a confined space. Smokes were $5.50 when I quit.

Any other success stories?
Do you miss it?
Do you dream about smoking?
Does the wafting smell still have an allure or do you find it disgusting?
What was the most difficult trigger to overcome?
How much were cigarettes when you quit?
How much money do you think you've saved?
