9 days ago I decided to give up smoking after doing it for 14 years.

Initially I was going to do it without any help because I didn't want to replace one habit with another but that would probably have led me to start smoking again.

So

I bought a vape and haven't had a cigarette in 9 days. Sure no one knows the long term effects of vaping yet but it is generally regarded as a safer alternative, especially as vaping doesn't include almost all of the chemicals associated with smoking!!

I know 9 days doesn't sound like a proper achievement but it really feels like it.

Do you have any success stories?

I'm glad to hear you're making that big step James! biggrin.gif also i'd imagine vaping would be easier to stop than going cold turkey on smoking as well!

Congrats James, keep it up! My dad has been struggling to quit smoking for as long as I can remember but is also making good progress at the moment.

As for personal success stories that are health-wise like this (and not the usual academic stuff), I'd say mine is mostly improving my diet. I'm a very fussy eater and my diet isn't great now, but it's so much better than it was a few years ago so I'm happy that I started trying more of a variety of foods.

Getting into uni is the big one for me, I worked so hard for my A Levels and getting the grades to get in was amazing. Not only that but in going there I've improved all round as a person, as in my confidence, my social skills, just everything really. I'm in general a much happier person with some amazing friends, compared to a year ago when I was always unhappy, I had barely any friends and dreaded any form of social interaction laugh.gif

i may have cured myself of my anxiety in the long term the last couple of nights, that's a very big success story for me, so many life problems dissapeared, if it is long term of course. I'm not sure.

This makes me so happy for you! I had a very similar turn around going from high school to college! It's always a great moment when a fantastic person realizes how brilliant they actually are! heart.gif

Mine is taking a risk and moving to a ski resort last winter and becoming a board instructor/ bartender. Left my mundane office job and just went for it, thanks to one of my best friends convincing me! Now we run our own kayak rental business on the Savannah River, here in GA. And we both travel to Colorado in the Winter. biggrin.gif

My last alcoholic drink was in early January, which is something the me of my late teens/early twenties would be astonished by. I might have a couple on my birthday next month but the amount of money I've saved - compared to my 2015 alcohol spending (and every year since 2008 or so) - is well into hundreds of pounds biggrin.gif
