Day 1 time to lock it down
I've been cutting down the ciggies the last couple of days quit day today and the headaches have started despite drinking plenty of fluids and taking a panadol.
Resorted to doing sit ups when I feel like a smoke which was first thing this morning when I'd normally have a smoke straight after waking with my morning coffee
I'm feeling really tired too think it's from the headache .
My motivator for quitting is our family trip to Fiji it costs about 6000 for my partner and I so something had to give !
I'm hoping my partner will give up with me, by the weekend hopefully but I didn't want to wait till then I've been wanting to stop for so long now well over a year, so cold turkey it is can't wait to get through the first three days when I know there's no nicotine in my system and its all physcological.
I'm in Aussie ATM with family helping my neicey with her depression there are 3 smokers in this house who make a good living but struggle to buy smokes a day out of the week usually before pay day and it's a lil cheaper here for smokes! I feel guilty that they were trying to supply me as well, I'm hoping to use this month to return home smoke free
So to everyone starting their journey I wish you all a smoke free life style! Kia kaha one step at a time, I'll be back same bat channel same bat time tomorrow to let loose whatever's in my head

Looks like an elephant and feels like a sloth
Oh and on a side note while looking for an app to install on my phone to help with hints and tips and hopefully distractions when I'm wanting a cigarette I found one that looked pretty good (even if it was a UK version) I was intrigued on the very first pop up it says I am here to help you with your “ATTEMPT” well guess what stupid app I want this to be when I quit not just an attempt. So needless to say I didn’t use that one. But there aren’t many apps for people to use to help with giving up. At least not decent ones. Perhaps I shall design an app to do this. Bahaha not sure when I'm going to fit that it. I can barely get all my washing done each day. So as I travel on this journey im sure there will be more little things that I find I want to achieve and complete. Note to self make a list of all goals that I want to achieved before the end of the year.
So wish me luck and hopefully in a few weeks I shall be a smaller Elephant and perhaps the energy will have increased to that of a speedy turtle?
Have a good day and see you on the flip side

Here we are….. 3rd breathday today. Wow! When I look at the numbers and think about the last 3 years I can’t really believe it. What a journey it has been. From quitting the day I left my ex, to being able to make friends, to the first free steps at the beach….. The beach….walking there every weekend early mornings with my music in my ears, that’s how I got strength to tackle the things thrown at me.
I love my quit family… without you guys (and quitline) I wouldn’t be here. I do think though it’s time to draw a line… so, I might be lurking in the background but won’t be active (much). There are so many wonderful new quitters supporting each other that I can leave and be sure everybody will be fine.
I am still on the quittery on FB and will support from there, stay in contact with my friends (the ones that are not on FB via e-mail hehehe). I will miss you but it’s time to write a new chapter in my book.
So, thank you all for your support, your love and all the hugs over the past 3 years. It means so much more than you’ll ever know. You guys were my first friends and will always have a place in my heart.
I wish you all the best. Stay strong lovelies.
Lots of love & hugs
