Checking in at 45 days smoke free

Hi all,

Today I have 45 days under my belt and I feel wonderful. Cough is completely gone, I smell like perfume instead of that nasty cigarette smell, I have some of my breath back, I can actually run on the treadmill and walk up a flight of stairs without feeling so out of breath, I have NOT gained any weight, I have actually lost about 4 pounds, and most interesting.... I feel so calm. I very seldom think about smoking and I can honestly say that the cravings are very few and far between. If I continue to feel like this, I think I might I have this thing licked. I don't want to get over confident, but I have never felt this good when I have quit in the past.

To all of you just newly quit, hang in there, it does get better.  Be strong...don't smoke.

Wow, 45 days and you feel like this!! Terrific! I have 30 days tomorrow and don't feel the least bit confident about it.

I"m happy for you! Maybe another 15 days is all I need....
