Well done @Not Another Puff  :foundbeer: :foundbeer:
Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........

100 days ago, there was no way I thought I was capable of getting here.

In your experience, what are the dangers that are going to trip me up going forward?

Complacency - the idea that you could just have one. You have to stick to your plan @Not Another Puff

Yep- @tea has hit the nail on the head, @Not Another Puff . Constant vigilance is still required at all times. This is the point where Evil Mr Nic can see you slipping from his grasp and will try throwing a few final curved-balls your way.... just hold in there and remember NOPE.  :)

Yay @Not Another Puff! Great milestone to get under your belt.  Yes I agree that complacency is a big danger.  And you forget the hell that you went through to get to where you are so you could maybe write a list or do yourself a little video of why you don’t want to have to go through those first 100 days ever again.

Well done @Not Another Puff ,its a great mile stone that not many people on here manage to get to, I remember my 100 days and it felt good. Its a great start but you have got to do it all over again but this time it will be much easier. Yes there are trips going forward, i slipped at 700 days once, but never again as I didn't have the support of this forum then. For me my health is so much better, I walked the dog 3 miles along the sea front yesterday, that wasn't possible 11 months ago. Not smoking has only got benefits. I hope your finding some benefits that you never want to lose.:)
Quit 16th November 2017.
Last smoke 21st November 2017.
Trigger word...LEG.

That is a brilliant idea, these can go with 'my reasons I want to give up smoking' list which is so dog eared, I have had to sellotape it back together and keep in my wallet.

Reason to Never Want to Give up Smoking Again

1.   The cravings, all day every day for first 60 days.
2.   Irregular sleep pattern.
3.   Irregular heartbeat.
4.   Unable to concentrate.
5.   Fixating about cigarettes all the time.
6.   That voice in my head, ‘go on, just have one, you have done so well, reward yourself’. I hate that voice.
7.   Standing up and pacing before I realise I am even doing it, which is a bit odd when at work.
8.   To have to quit again means this quit has failed.

@Not Another Puff there are many battles in life; some you will win and some you will lose. Do not lose a battle with some dead leaves wrapped in paper. Keep winning.  :vader:

what are the dangers that are going to trip me up going forward?


The main danger,in my humble opinion, is putting yourself in a physical situation or with certain people, where your resistance can be undermined and where you might for whatever reason consider the question ' what harm can just one do me '  :-[
This applies to all sorts of things- Sunny Holidays, drinking, reunions, very upsetting or exciting situations..So I would say choose carefully where you go and who you mix with because your quit,though beautiful and soft like a new born babe, is still growing and is very young and fragile and could yet be undone and we are not in the business of failing,here at Just Quit, because we are winners -even when it takes 2 or 12 or 20 times to win   :hug:
