First Smokefree Day
Hey yall x
Hope all is doing good :) alright, so this is my first time on here so please help me out LOL ... Anywaaaaaays ......
As of tomorrow 7/05/2016 it will be my First Smokefree Day :) I am pretty excited & sorta scared at the same time :( I know I shouldn't be ...So wish me luck everyone :)
(R4) Day 15 winding down.
Not so sleepy today.
And found a heap of yarn amd crochet hooks. Spent time sorting them out, and "Yes" I remember how to crochet. First job a loop scarf. No, back up...first job a pullover for a friend's new bub. Then my scarf.
No cravings, no grumps, no tears... All good
(Wish my QL Stats were)
Hi day eight for me now doing ok but need to watch what I am eating so that's my focus over next week
Thank goodness Day. 3 is over
What an aboslute shocker of a day! Worse it was purely the fault of the nictoine monster. Fred would just not drop dead! Instead he kept popping up urging me to just chill and have that smoke.
The surprising thing for me is this was also my first no drama day. My kid was back to his lovely self, work was stress free and had plenty of time to run errands. Yet for most of the day "Fred" was nagging me, so lots of internal arguing as I tried to stop Freds nagging from becoming my actions. Proud to say, with a few prayers, distraction and positive affirmation I stayed strong.
I can do this!
Oh and reading the book, The Easy Way to Stop Smoking, has helped heaps too. Love you Allen Carr 😍

Sending a BIG Heads-up,
To those whose 'Stat numbers' have 'changed' for the worse :(
Many of us 'thrive' on these+ I, for one, almost feel 'ripped off '. It has made me Question my constant return to Quitline blogs?
After 4+ years-Why am I still here?
And Why does this feel so unsettling?
I guess this site is exclusive (a couple on naanaas last week thought it would be Funny to try take the mickey out of US-boy did they get slaughtered!! Then Abolished!! Good job!!)
Some say these are 'Only numbers'
I say for some, they are Crutches. The very things that remind us to Be Proud & Stay strong.
So for those, like Me, who are actually having a wee mental struggle
Stay strong, Be Proud - VERY Proud
This exclusive journey is Our road travelled+
is Ours alone xo
For our ♀ Female producers
Happy Mothers day
Blimey! 27 DAYS!
Haven't logged on in a while. Days are getting easier, still bloody tired though. Have been battling some toothache and infection lately. That's got me down a bit, sore face and can't sleep half the time. Clove oils been my best friend.
Didn't think I'd survive this long to be honest, glad I have though. Anyone thinking about doing it, the time flies eventually, I told someone I was on day 18 yesterday and even then I was proud. Can imagine how I feel now!
Wow 81 days today!
Got a shock when I logged in and saw my stats were different.
But I have read other blogs and see that there is an issue.
I don't think of smoking anymore, my days just whizz by.
Work, family life and training.
Like last time I quit fitness has taken over and I am doing the muddy good run in September with a friend of mine.
Looking forward to it I might be crazy but should be great fun.
Hope all is well with everyone.
Remember if you are struggling hop on here for support & advise, ring quitline, take a deep breathe, dance, scream (warn others first!), use the 4ds. Anything to get thru.
It seems like the cravings last for ages - they don't in reality.
Don't listen to the demon he lies and will say anything to suck you back into the addition.
Take care all xxx
Been a while since I was on here I have just been so busy and stressed ... This year has been absolute sh*t ... just when I thought things were going right a spanner gets thrown into the works and I am stressing out ... I was doing so well being smokefree and now its back to my big addiction (10x worse I must add) so back to the drawing board again with this one ... Everything just seems to be going wrong and it is all out of my control so I have decided I am going to take control on the things I can control and once again it is smoking ....
My new quit date is Monday the 9th May 2016 ... Just one day at a time I know I can do this ...
