the wheels are not on at all
to cut a long story short, we got fed up with feeling the inner rage/compulsion and colluded like addicts do.
I'm not sure where to go to from here although I know many have taken a few good cracks to make a success of it.
I was signed off yesterday as have a couple of major surgeries coming up so feel a bit weird about life.
lacking in plans and purpose I guess. we've booked a meal on Saturday as a bit of a summit to sort through a lot of things.
the one good thing we do have is each other and our whanau so small blessings and all that.
I know that nobody can tell me anything I don't know rationally and the stories on here inspire me to dust myself off but also scared of the mental anguish.
is it all about timing? when is the right time?
bah and humbug to the evilness of this drug!

Hi all I'm still going strong. I'm going to buy a vape for my hubby. I've had a few thoughts like I want a smoke these are just thoughts. I think I've done pretty well I can now stand outside with smokers and it feels normal not smoking that is. Well lots happening we are down to 4 months left of this sentence then we can go out and be normal. I'm back at the gym so jy focus is on getting rid of these extra kilos I picked up. Master 3.5 is awesome he uses the toilet at daycare but not at home so I have some work to put in here.I got my stuff back off my fair weathered friend and now I can just continue on without her. So quitting has been the best thing I've done I'm hoping to resist the vape as I'm nicotine free it's just that little bit of curiosity that might make me have a puff on a vape.

9 Days smokefree
I've done what I thought would be impossible. I haven't had a smoke in 9 days and I feel great. I don't smell that yucky stale smoke smell everywhere I go and I can take a deep breath. My chest is a little sore but its a good kinda sore.

Stats Update 800 Days
Cigarettes NOT Smoked : 16,000
Total Savings : $14,880.00
800 days ago i made the decision to do whatever it took to quit this addiction once and for all. No more faffing about and caving in whenever i thought it was too hard. This had to be it!
800 days out.....i love being smokefree. There are the odd times when i hear that old nicodemon squeal at me to have a smoke - but quitting has taught me just to squeal back! And it doesn't take much to send him on his way.
Progress is happening with hubby's foot and he is now back at work as he can now put some (careful) weight on the foot. Sore by the end of the day - but better after a night's rest.
I have a date for my surgery.....14th of October.
Finally we are moving forward rather than marking time! lol.
Have a great smokefree day all.....and squeal (or scream) as often as needed!
We are all fabulous and strong,
Love & hugs to all.

No lozenges so far today.
I had a total of 3 yesterday normally a sheet.
I do believe this is just as hard as I don't have a substitute I'm quitting the substitute.
Lots of different flavoured chewing gums and water.
Ahh I hate this adittiction in its entiretly. But this is the last part of it and it will not beat me!!!!

Yay still going strong. Day three today without any NRT decided it was time to quit them as well, so far so good, though I do have my guard up even stronger. Keep going everyone, we can do this. So glad I set up a savings account at the start. Off for some retail therapy with my daughter tomorrow. Only wish the spring weather would arrive 😄😄🌻🌻
