bloomingflower :  I just wanted to say good for you!  I’ve been smoke free for almost a year and I know it can be super hard. There’s a reddit page for stop smoking that really helped me. I also got the pro version if a stop smoking app which was totally worth it. It shows how your health is improving and shows how much you’re saving. The app was less than a pack of cigarettes so I could easily justify the cost. My vape keeps me sane, but I find I can go a long time without it now. 

 

The biggest thing that helped me was the question “what was the most intense thing you did for a smoke. I thought about being outside in -40 to smoke (seriously I hate the cold why did I do that!), I paid $17 a pack once becausI wasn’t desperate, and I’d asked strangers for smokes when I was out. Thinking about those things made me realize how addicted I was and that I never want to go back. 

 

You’ve got this!!

bloomingflower :  Congrats! My SO quit smoking in college. He said that he read Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking and never looked back. that was about 10 years ago. Then he gave the book to his mom and she quit smoking right after reading it too! So if you need a little extra drive, that book comes highly recommended. 🙂
