Excited about giving up (this time)!
After several failed attempts to give up smoking I am actually ready and prepared this time and stick to it. A friend showed me this website which looked really neat, got my script today for champix, planned a stop date and signed up for the October stop smoking month. So it is all go - bring it on!
today is my day 2 of giving it up . finding i really want a smoke and nearly give in and go by a pack by 2pm .i have found that not smoking things taste alot different and my smell is different . even going into shops and someone inline is a smoker i can smell it on them and its horrible , makes me think did i really use to smell like that , needing alot of support
My new season starts this weekend. The truck is a similair colour as it was just a spruce up. Am looking forward to travelling agin now and getting out and about.Its been a long winter break. Thank goodness I dont smoke anymore as I would be really broke :)
Pride cometh before a fall
I thought I was doing so well for the last few days until lunch today. We had an irregular gettogether at Sals Pizza for people I used to work with.
Sitting outside after finishing eating I suddenly desperately wanted a fag. I have no idea where it came from or why it was so strong.
If I'd had access to them at that point I would have lit up. I did resist walking up the road and buying some, but only just. I was already on my feet when the party broke up.
Right now I feel one hell of a lot less cocky than I have recently.

Another great day.
1 lozenge today and that was when I got up this morning. Plus the patch of course.
Sat at the smoko table with 5 workmates at lunch time. They were all smoking. Now I know how smokers offend non-smokers. They stank.
It makes me more determined than ever not to be a smoker ever again.
Still thinking of you, Nana22. Be strong, you are my hero.
Popped in to say hi, whoop whoop high fives everyone
Well that says it all, not sure where the 14k is but feeling like smoking is a distant memory, if in doubt just carry on it does get better!

I have had the most awesome couple of weeks actually really enjoying my smokefreedom and today whammo that old nico has been at my side since first light this morning and shows no sign of "going away" anytime soon. This is the hardest time i've had since about 5/6 weeks. I soo want a smoke, but i won't, i can't. This is day 3 on the weaker patches so don't know if it's that or not, although at this stage (8 weeks) it's more than likely just the emotional side of quitting - the head thing. Obviously i need to do some more tidying up in there. I'm not writing this to scare the newer quitters, rather i need to vent,and also this is how it can be - it doesn't just magically come to a sudden end, this quitting thing but is an ongoing journey and we need to be very real about it.For me today to stay quit, it's back to the basics. NOPE, ODAAT, 4d's and much walking and i don't have to like it, i only have to do it. Tomorrow will be a brand new day.
