Amazing how the time flies... Arohamai for my absence of late..Just going through alot lately.. and yes even though Quitline has always been the forefront of my mind.. I honestly just have really not got the time...
Since last Thursday.. Mum went into hospital for her high blood pressure and heart palpitations.. On Saturday docs said it was pneumonia that caused it.. They have been running all sorts of tests and giving mum all sorts of medication, Im just glad that the worst is almost over and hoping that she will come home soon and her temp and everything stays at the "normal" scale..
I was having a conversation with her yesterday, in regards to her smoking habit - it so amazes mwah that she can hold off while being in hospital (her last hikaretti being on Thursday) Im hoping she kicks the 40 year habit to the curb and can be discharged today..
On the positives: Yesterday Sweety turned 15 - She went to the mall with her friends after kura, and I picked her up from the mall after I finished mahi and then took her up to the hospital to visit Mum and met up with Princess whom had taken the train straight to the hospital.. we had Subway for dinner (her choice) and then she cut her triple choco cake..
Today - Wairua Taonga (phatty gal) turns 6 - (shez been counting the days since 28th of June) I will be taking her bike shopping tonight plus dinner of her choice and then yummy cake...
I absolutely love my mahi
I love my 550 smokefree days - Celebrations... mmm reward time is deff on the list..
I love my quitline whanau - because of your continuous support and aroha that inspired mwah through my journey.. I am able to stand on my maunga today..
Day 14 smokefree 💪 💪 💪
It's been 2 weeks since my last ciggy and I'm still sick with the flu. I have a persistent cough, especially at night. The causes me to wake up taking me awhile to get back to sleep due to the continuous fits of coughing. I'm not sure whether this is because I'm sick or if it's from quitting smoking or maybe a mixture of the two, so I'm off to the doctors today to check it out. On a positive note all this coughing is making me more determined not to smoke!

Chemo , Radiology Hormone Treatment , There has been Total upheaval and have gone from Palliative care to actually planning a future .
Smokefree , Foot loose & fancy free . Do I want a Smoke ?
NO That is a Complete Sentence . 😜
Hey Quit fam
Im just wondering..
My Mum and I dont get on at the best of times, and tonight.. an argument with my Dad.
I was raised by my Grandparents (Mums side) old schoolers.. beautiful wonderful people. I dont see eye to eye with Mum, we are happy to keep away from each other. I love my Aunties and Uncle (her siblings) they are all really good people.
I dont usually see my Papa.. my Dad and nor do I talk much about him. My oldest brother, my sister who passed away in January this year and myself are full siblings.
Tonight my Dad turned up without asking or warning which doesnt sit well with me. He is a biker.. west Auckland.. no need to say much more. I wont get in to what happened.. lets just say that I said bad stuff and so did he.. it was below the belt to say the least. He said I have his Gene's a lot of what he said was true but some im not sure of? I called him a drop kick (meaning someone who cant reach a goal etc) then he said I would never succeed. He said something about apples falling from the same tree (might be my English) didnt unerstand.. was wondering if I can stay quit? Im doubting myself cos of things he said.. Im really low and feel good for nothing, Im think im grieving and im angry. Im really angry, I feel like im wasting my time trying to not smoke.. trying to be someone better than what I am. So pissed off at everything. Sorry.. blimin negative blog

This evening four weeks ago I was a smoker ... tomorrow morning my stats will show 28 days or 4 weeks smoke free! Unbelievable after 35+ years chained and unable to set myself free from this horrible addiction. I don't think I will see myself as a non or ex smoker for sometime but I do see myself as a recovering addict who will keep fighting the addiction ODAAT with as much determination as I can muster. Today I have felt some calm again after a week of turbulence! You see for me its a double dose of emotions happening .... quitting and also (close your ears men!) being very menopausal. Not nice to live with .. poor partner has copped lots this past week but he's still alive and has not been murdered and hidden under the floor boards (just for you MrL!) I found myself each day asking 'Is this hormones or is it quitting?' but you know what? It doesn't matter because they will both pass with time. Thank you quit family for your encouragement and kind words, YOU are my secret weapon in this war with Nicodemon actually nicodemon he doesn't deserve a capital letter!
ODAAT & NOPE x
