776 days smoke free for me (I have an app for that!) and lovin' it. So, just over two years.

I've saved about $13,975 (at the old price of ~$20 per pack) which is a real bonus. I love every minute of being smoke free and have no desire or temptation to ever smoke again. I feel guilty if I wake up having dreamed about smoking but also relieved that is was only a dream. :lol:

Food tastes better, beer tastes better! And nowadays with the level of social isolation expected of smokers it's great that I don't have to leave a social setting just to go and have a cigarette.

Can't believe it took me over 20 years to decide to kick the damn habit. There's noting at all good about smoking but i couldn't see that (through the smoke) when I was a smoker. I can assure people that you don't need cigarettes to cure boredom, do something with your hands or relieve stress - they're just excuses to avoid the effort of quitting.

Yup 5 weeks in. Still early days but there's always a reason in my head not to have one as 20 years is a pretty decent smoking career.

To keep 'busy' i finally finished an old kitset model I had stored away.

great work, Dave.   someone told me the other day that a packet of smokes now costs over $25.  unbeleivable - makes fueling a V8 seem cheap!

keep up the good work!

bit of a thread dig.. its been about 3 weeks now since I stopped again for the millionth time.

getting really expensive now and now I have been smoking for over half of my life which is probably a good enough time as any to try to quit again. Bloody hell..

1,360 days since my last cigarette and I've saved $20,410 at the old price since then! Yes, there's an app for that. It's about $30 for a pack of 20 now isn't it?!?!?

Power to you Kyu, you'll feel much better once you get over the hump! 👍
