I have lost count on how many quits and relapses I have had, and all it takes is that one puff. Now that I am more educated, I know not to find an excuse to have that puff, 1=all, take one day at a time and login to freedom if I have a weak moment. I feel free at long last that at 64 years old, that I will succeed permanently. I do not want to go through those 72 hours again, nor do I want my life to be dictated by an addiction.
When I did smoke, although enjoyable, I felt guilty, weak and stupid, knowing I was doing something that was a serious health issue, let alone a social one, hense I was a closet smoker and nicotine gum chewer.
My name is Candy, and I am a nicotine addict.
I have stopped nicotine for 4 months, 19 days, 22 hours, 17 minutes and 7 seconds (141 days).
I've not smoked 2,29 death sticks, and saved $535.35.
I've saved 7 days, 9 hours and 24 minutes of my life.
