- It’s been one year since….
7 months was my longest and overall racked up 2 yrs off or so
I recently encountered a huge load of stress and went back to smoking just this time far too many
I have cut down to 7 a day or so now but that is still 7 or so too many
What I found to help quit was a real want to give the dreaded killer up and the foul smell on clothing as I swear I do loadsa clothes washing when I do smoke just to keep smelling half decent
Anyway nice1 for your effort on abstaining and celebrate the fact with a bicycle related treat
Hmmmm something in Ti perhaps!?

Cheers all – I was building up to it for a few months but didn’t feel quite ready then one day decided to just go for it.
I used to smoke maybe 10 rollies a day so sadly haven’t saved all that much compared to real cigarettes. Also I spend a LOT more on cake now!Posted 4 months ago
Nope no vaping – I kind of figured no point swapping one habit for another. Biking certainly feels a fair bit easier, albeit there are occasions, halfway round a ride, when I think it would be nice to have a fag break. It’s definitely the best thing I’ve done for myself in a number of years.
What I found was that my smoking was very habitual i.e. I would smoke at particular times and places. If I could get past these ‘moments of truth’ then the rest of the day was comparatively easier. I also made a point of going out for a few beers in the first week, to prove to myself I could get past that hurdle.Posted 4 months ago
