Thanks for this string not seen it before.My quit has been fairly painless Ive been able to do far more and enjoy myself However I must not get complacent I need to be grateful because the process of quitting has levelled off and Im noticing some things in my life that I dont like but I know smoking wont change a thing so NTAP!

I have been quit for 1 Month, 1 Week, 3 Days, 14 hours, 16 minutes and 36 seconds (41 days). I have saved £108.14 by not smoking 415 cigarettes. I have saved 1 Day, 10 hours and 35 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 13/03/2006 06:00

Out of them all-- the mentor ship through the quit, the litany of predictable symptoms, the coaching through health benefits, the videos, the emotions-- this post/advice kernel is the very most helpful to me---- how true. Thank you--

I would much rather be an ex-smoker who occasionaly thinks about smoking than be a smoker who constantly thinks about quitting,

Thanks for pulling this one up Star.
In reflecting over my quit,
JoeJFree is right on where he says "
Neither side is perfect, but this side of the bars holds hope and life, the inside of the cell is fraught with despair and death".

I sooooo prefer being on this side of the bars...on the remission side of my addiction.

My journey to freedom has been empowering and exhilarating and sure beats stagnating behind those bars, wallowing in my despair the way I did for so many years.

This side is may not be perfect but it is downright beautiful now that I can see!

So again, neither side is perfect but the ex-smoking side gets better and better while the problems you face as a continuing smoker would get progressively worse over time. Not to mention that your health would be continually negatively impacted by the interim smoking and eventually smoking could rob you of your life. Neither side is perfect but the ex-smoking side is far preferable and you can keep that side as long as you simply stick to your commitment to never take another puff!
