Hi all you wonderful non smokers
Never thought I would get to this stage, but I have and I am very proud of myself! Intend to have a nice holiday on the money I have saved. I am also slowly losing the weight through weight watchers, so soon I will be back to my pre quit weight (and maybe a wee bit lighter).
I haven't been blogging much, but occasionally I log on to check my quit buddies are still going strong, and it is awesome to see you all still here.
Stay strong! Remember newbies -
NOPE and ODAAT and you will get through

146 days today
yippee my stats are getting up there now.
I do not miss smoking at all or even think of having a smoke at al.
There have been times when stress & upsetting things affect me but I now don't turn to the smokes.
I still use lozenges when needed most days I have a couple. Not for cravings but more so for situations that Im in and Im preparing for it.
I need to think about cutting them out at some stage.
This was my first week back at work since my trip to Oz and it was a looonng week.
But without work & money I cant afford my next trip back to see my family.
My trip went so fast but my son & I had a ball.
Was so good to see my Mum & Stepdad, it had been 8 months since I saw them last.
We had great weather between 24-26 most days. Was chilly in the mornings with dew on the grass.
Went fishing 2x and my son caught fish.
Dinosaur show (3d, interactive) was fantastic!
Walked the dog, shopped (not heaps)
I miss my family so much but my life is here in ChCh, work, school, friends. My partner wouldn't move so its either my relationship or Oz.
For now its a nice place to go for holidays.
Not much else to report, Im not on here often anymore but I do check up on you all LOL thru the week.
Take it slowly, 4d's, blog, this site & the people are fantastic!!!
Take care all xx

Ah yes 1989 a time when you could do what you want and be what you want. Also when I decided to take up smoking again after six years quit. Also the year TS was born and my favorite album of hers. Usually try not to listen to that kind of stuff but her music is so addictive you can't help but get hooked. It may take me many more years to fully recover from smoking but I will never quit quitting. I have always wanted to quit so I have run out of lame excuses so time to hit the back burner on this quit. Onwards and upwards everybody!

Hi quit family.
Reading and posting to a couple of blogs I read that a couple of people have fallen off the wagon. These things happen. Heck. It happened to me more times than I care to remember.
What I find incredible is the fact that these same people came on here. Disappointed in themselves but defiant! As long as the quit is never quit, you will eventually succeed!!
All I can say is hang in there guys. Tough it out. See out those first few days. Then see out those first few weeks. Then see out those few months. Watch for your triggers and be focused on why you are quitting.
Reward yourself and make sure you tell EVERYONE you are quitting smoking. Get people to help you. Ask for help. Do anything but smoke. NOPE!!
And lastly. Use us..your quitline family. We are here to help. So use us. And together we can help each other remain Smokefree!!
Happy Saturday all!!

Dedicated to weight loss and the gym freaks
About 6 -8 weeks ago my brother in law and his neighbours my 2 girl cousins stopped smoking. All 3 of them were all worried about gaining weight from quitting. My brother in law has been walking everyday before and after work and my sister told me he has lost about 3 kgs, i havent seen him yet but i thought thats awesome! The 2 cuzzies both weighed id say around 80kgs one about 100kgs cos shes slightly bigger than her sister..
OMGosh!!!! I went to the gym this morning.. and I saw my 2 girls the cuzzies... they... look... FANTASTIC!!!
The bigger cuz has lost 15kgs and her sister has lost 12kgs in 6-8weeks! Both are non smokers now and i could see it on both of them.. they are looking bloody awesome! They go to the gym 3 times a week for 1 hour and its nothing too physicsl.. just cardio... They say it helps but the big secret???
1. Ripped Freak protein formula. They tell me that this is a weightloss protein that boosts energy and you continue to lose weight while it repairs muscle.
2. L-Carnitine plus raspberry ketones. A fat burning formula that boosts thermogenesis. They tell me both of these products used together are magic! And.. i believe them because i can see the results.
I was amazed at how they look, it was visable and i noticed a massive weight loss as soon as i saw them! Dramatic! Just thought id share☺☺

Drinks with the girls from work last night as I'm heading to another job and I'm going on gardening leave so not sure when my actual last day will be in the office. Anyway it was great fun but half the girls were smoking and for some reason later in the night after many many wines I asked if I could have a puff! I immediately had the girls all yell NO!! at me in unison so lucky they have my back. I didn't even want a puff so I don't know why I asked to begin with! Just goes to show you just can't let you're guard down really when it comes to smoking. Makes me even more proud of my 55 days today - have a good weekend everyone xx
