From my quit meter:
Eleven months, four weeks, 2 minutes and 1 second.
7260 cigarettes not smoked, saving $1,452.01.
Life saved: 3 weeks, 4 days, 5 hours, 0 minutes.
I have begged friends and relatives for a stray here and there. A couple times when I was drinking I wanted one or three. But I consider myself a non-smoker. I guess I am proud of that but I'm not really happy about it. I miss smoking.
I still find it hard to feel satisfied after a meal. I want an ending. I sometimes have to consciously force myself to stop eating. Smoking allowed me to stop eating. I never ate and smoked as I've seen some people do. It was easy, as a smoker, to end a meal by having a cigarette. Now? Not so much.
PS. I don't really get the 11 months and 4 weeks thing. May 18th is my one year anniversary. And the $1452 I've saved by not smoking? I've spent it on food and Gas-X. Nicotine relieves the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Who knew?
