No problem. As I said each to their own but when does the counting stop? 36500000000 days??? Pointless imo. I no longer smoke so time is just that really so why focus on counting it? Keep going. Life's so much better

Keep it up. I’m at day 33 - so I get the counting thing. Not sure how long you had been smoking but when you’ve done it every day for a while, each day you consciously go without it is a victory and can be celebrated just like you are doing. Keep going - find whatever gives you that inner peace and contentment. Your life sounds richer already.

It's kind of funny. I quit for good and it's about to become legal. Doesn't change a thing though. I'm still committed to changing my life, regardless. I compare it to alcoholics. It's available at the store, yet can still ruin lives.

I shouldn't count, but I'm going to anyway. 26 days without a single slip up! I still have some highs and lows, but things are much better then before. I can feel my focus coming back and some days are quite normal, thank god! My stoner friends have dropped off, as expected, however my non-stoner friends have been there for me. As for sleep, it's improved drastically. In fact, I can't get enough sleep these days. For those just starting out, hang in there and whether the storm. More progress reports to come.

Thanks for sharing your story here!
And whatever helps you is fine - i couldnt help but count too at the beginning - hey it is not small feat to go for 26 days without after years of numbing up!! I was quite proud at every milestone and that helped me going on. I m in my 10th month and that s almost a full year in life without substance, hadnt had that since junior high haha..
You seem to have good reasons to go down that (bumpy) road so you re set to cool rewards.. Hang on to this Seeingthelight!

31 days today without any slip ups. I was never into anything else and can't remember the last time I've had a drink. It's been a long hard road, but I'm trying my best to do all the right things in life. These are the only things that are within my control. Humility is the key word today. Staying humble throughout this process is very important
