Today, I'm 1 year old!

    One year ago, exactly like today. I woke up in the morning and decided. I will never smoke anymore.

    I have to admit, at first, I wasn't sure it's going to last, and look at me today .. one full year later.. And NOT A SINGLE PUFF! No Cigarettes, no hookah, NOTHING!

    break-cig 

    But the weird thing is that this stupid counter... doesn't want to admit that I reached 1 year!! Dang it!

    I look back at this year... I think ... WOW!

    I feel healthier, I can breath better. I feel great in general.

    I no longer wake up in the middle of the night coughing ..

    I no longer wake up in the morning with a sore throat

    Everything I have smells great, from the sheets to the seats.

    People don't have to hold their breath when I share the elevator with them

    And my day is certainly longer with no more "cigarette breaks" every half hour

    I used to adore smoking and now .. that I'm out of the habit..

    I'm so grateful for ever single person who helped.

    For the so many people who had doubts, or I did it .. and you can do it too

    Congrats to a healthier you.
    Afaf
    Thank you very much

    Sam
    Okbalo .. I am sure with a little bit of encouragement and your charm, he will do everything you want.
    Just go easy on him. Most smokers can't really help it. They need leniency in the way you deal with them. Just keep encouraging him ..

    Hind
    No, it's not true. Anyone can quit, just help him .. keep encouraging him to quit, and trust me, he will eventually do it

    Batoul
    :) Yeah, I think I made it. I hope more people will follow

    Sara
    I hope he will too .. encourage him to do so .. he will listen.

    Tinkerbella
    You quit for two full years and went back? :(
    Come on girl, you have a will of steel and you can do it. You did it before.
    I'm just like you I LOVE smoking, I still do. But it's something that HAS TO GO. I just can't allow the habit to shape my life, or define me.. So I made the decision. I'm in charge and I quit!
    You can do it again Tinkerbella .. you can do it again

    Maioush
    For a moment I thought you're spam :)
    :) Thanks

    Nido
    I hope so too ... it's not worth it wallahi

    Dave
    :) Thanks man.
    Remember that Jordan blogs meeting when I used to smoke and got some negative remarks from people. You were there. I was so ashamed of my self to tell you the truth for disappointing people.
    That's when I made my decision. No more smoking. And I'm so happy with that decision now
    Happy smoking-free year!
    Inshallah 3ala tool ;)
    Hope my parents yn3dao :P ! they both smoke w byt7jajo beba3ad 4 qitting !!

    Mabrook! I am really happy for you :)

    How long did you smoke before you took a decision to quit?

    It must feel great to feel the change yourself, I thought it takes longer for a smoker to be 100% clean.

    Anyway, you reminded me of myself whenever I pass by smokers; I frown and cough and wave my hand around and I know they notice it but I do not care hehehe.
    No Cigaretes?!
    No Argeleh?!
    No Nicotene?!
    No Cough?!

    What a life is yours?
    .

    I envy you !!

    Thanks, Inshallah I will

    Thanks man :)

    Thank you so much. That's a wicked trick you do :) I like it!  I should probably do it too

    Mohd Shaltaf
    Okbalak bro, inshallah you will be smoke free too one day.
    Way to go Qwaider.I am so happy for you.Now,you can help others that are hooked on smoking.

    Would you believe that it was a doctor that helped me with quittng smoking,only thing is he was a gynecologist, by shocking me,he was the best one of two that I ever had,as gynecolgists ,he showed me a chart of how women had developed lung cancer in relation to when women took up smoking,I guess in the roaring 20's.

    The chart showed clearly the connection between women smoking and developing this disease.I'm so grateful for my pink, healthy lungs,as I quit smoking 28 years ago,after smoking about 10 years.I thank my eldest son for my healthy lungs as I quit smoking cold turkey when I carried him.I wink at Tinkerbella,hehehe.
    They say the general rule for any addiction is if you quit for 90 days, you're cured. Your counter finally shows 1 year and 1 day. There was a study that said the dammage done to your lungs due to smoking is not permenant, and that 4-5 years after quitting, your lungs will be back to normal.

    For me the best thing about someone quitting smoking is that you can talk to them face to face or be with them in the same car without having to hold your breath.

    Now you need to buy new clothes :)

    Way to go.
    wow! Way to go Qwaider!
    cthetheir momrystalbelle
    Thanks, I will try to help as many as I can to quit this nasty addiction

    Hani
    Yeah, the counter is finally showing the right date
    4 to 5 years!! Wow! I still have 3 to 4 years to go ... :( I hope I'll continue to feel better

    Why do I need to buy new cloths? Most of my stuff are newer than one year anyway :D, and I have everything professionally cleaned, so I don't have a problem there ;-)

    Diana
    Thank you :)
    Congrats!3okbal 100 smoke-free years.
    I used to cough whenever I passed someone with a cigarette in his hand, I still can't stand the smell, but I don't cough anymore. I guess I sort of got used to it because I know so many more smokers than before (nobody smokes in our family). But I still try to go as far away as possible when I see someone lighting his cigarette, I DO NOT want to become a passive smoker!
    I guess you don't need to get new ones then. I just have strong memories of what a smoker's coat smells like whenever one visits us. It's traumatic :D
    Congratulations! I keep sneaking puffs so I guess I can't say I've really quit yet. I admire your resolve!
