I used to smoke approximately 15 cigarettes a day.  So far, cigarettes not smoked 600 and money saved $450.00.    I am looking forward to buy that gold bracelet at Easter.   I have cravings from time to time when I smell cigarette smoke in our hallway or when people smoke on their balcony.   I like this forum because I can check my scores and read about other people who are going through what I am going through.   Thanks to all of you.

    Hi Rocket,
    Those numbers are incredible!  And such a nice gift that you have planned for yourself, you so deserve it!  Yes, the cravings come and go, they decrease in number and in intensity, but they will still come.  I had the same thing happen the other day, when I got a huge waft of cigarette smoke from the front of the building.  It took a lot of willpower for me not to run out there and bum a cigarette.  We have to always been on guard with this addiction.  But thankfully, it does get easier.

    Way to go Rocket48, 40 days is awesome.  And definitely, you must buy yourself the gold bracelet, that will make your quit worthwhile if you can treat yourself with money saved.  Congrats, you're doing well.

    Rocket, boy those are some stats, you should be very proud of yourself and by all means reward yourself in the process.  No better way to feel motivated than by buying a new bracelet for yourself or something you've always wanted with the money saved.  And every time you wear that bracelet it will remind you just how far you've come in your quit.  Great way to stay motivated and determined to keep it up.  Congrats again on 40 days.  Also although some others smoke where you are tempted,  you held on to your belief in yourself.   Good on you, Lucille.

    Congratulations on the 40 day mark, that's awesome!  It's nice to see the 'savings' adding up... it's a good quantifiable measure of progress.  You might find that taking a really deep breath is another satisfying way to feel progress :-)

    I"m looking out the window and it is snowing.   I am glad I do not have to go outdoor to smoke.   The no. 1 reason I quit smoking is my health.   My lungs are cleaner and there is almost no coughing, wheezing or crackling.   Now I breath better and walk faster.  Good luck to all the new quitters.
