Hi everyone im just starting this so any advice would be helpful. Im on the patch which is working well have a niggly sore throat and headache which I hope is normal.
I can do this
I cant wait to get my patches, an begin my new life as a smomfree wahine toa. :-)
well 21 days today and all good!
Went & got my prescription for more patches today, I didn't realise I was getting lozenges to OMG I have heaps.
Im not complaining cos I use the lozenges and have supplies at work, handbag etc.
Took my son to the Anzac service at school yesterday morning. Was lovely.
I was so proud of him he had asked to go.
I cried when the last post was played (I always do)
My son said just before they played don't cry Mum LOL he knew it was coming.
Chase went to puppy school this morning he socialised with the dogs well made friends with a huge dog.
We are teaching him sit & stay.
Cheese works great.
Have had 2 nights without any messes.
Hes beautiful a right wee terror!!
Last night my son slept in his own bed all night without waking.
Normally as some of you know he comes in and goes in the stretcher in my room. But not last night not even any calling out.
Fingers x he does it again tonight.
Its real windy so he may not due to the wind.
Well better go and get organised for bed tired as.
Have a great night all :)
That was a really long night at work. was as quiet as a graveyard and the time kind of dragged by. at 5.30 one of the younger ressies got up so i told her to have her shower. nek minit theres water flowing out towards the front door. the shower drain was blocked. the bathroom and toilet were thoroughly flooded. bucket and mop and a few towels later i mostly had it cleaned up. it sure filled in my last half hour of work. came home got to bed and had to get up twice in 4 hours for the loo. got up at lunchtime and went to sons for afternoon. they are moving out to Omokoroa. a family friend of sons has a flat so they are going there. the rent is $130 cheaper a week than what they pay now. includes power and water. its quite small and they might have to flog off some stuff but its two bedroom and theres only them and little one who will have a bigger room. i sure wont be going out there as much as i do now. too far from here. probably go once a week and stay the night. sons idea. we talked about having the little one maybe fortnightly. play that by ear. im off to bed soon as as usual not much sleep after shift so a bit tired now. have a happy week. is tomorrow a time and a half day for workers.
I had a smoke or a packet on the last day two so i had to start again.
I am now at the end of day two, a lesson learned. That lesson is that i'm not ready to be around smokers. 2nd lesson learned, lozengers suit me better than gum as an nrt. ( as well as patch)
I have slept most of the last 48hrs. I want to be in bed now.
I am so amazed and happy with my quit. We have been in our place 15 years and out of all the neighbours I am the only one that ever smoked. We have new neighbours and was at the kitchen window this morning and out walks new neighbour smoke in hand. It really threw me. Didn't make me want one luckily. As I am still waiting impatiently for the health benefits of quitting to start I am not going to go back to the start. The juices and smoothies slowly got replaced in the excuse of no time and got on the scales and they show an upward trending moving right along. So grateful that I lost some at the start so not quite back to where I was. But smoothie time again. Went out all dressed up and lo and behold the weight I lost came off my feet and ended up clumping around in my now to big new shoes. Got home tried all my shoes and all to big. Do you think thick socks and stilleto heels will become a trend anytime soon lol.

Hi all (he he)look what l got today a gold cup. Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend and being smokefree for it :-)
After a failed attempt a few years ago, here I am again. t's the third time I've quit and I've always been adamant it's easy to do.
Not today. Getting a weird anxious feeling. Don't know if i want to scream cry or eat. E cigarette helps a little but trying not to go to it too much.
On a positive note I can already smell food more and taste better :)
